Vulture Industries með nýtt textamyndband

Norska rokksveitin Vulture Industries er tilbúin textamyndband við lagið “As the World Burns”, en lagið verður að finna á plötunni “Stranger Times” sem gefin verður út í lok septmber mánaðar á þessu ári.

Myndbandið var unnið af Costin Chioreanu, en hann hefur unnið plötuumslög fyrir hljósmveitir á borð við Spirutal Beggars, Skuggsjá, At the gates, Arch Enemy Einerjer, Necrophagia og Grave.

Hljómsveitin hafði eftirfarandi um plötuna að segja:

“As the World Burns”: “This song represent the rockier side of our new album and is one of my personal favourites. ‘As the World Burns’ deals with the interdependence of extreme world views that need each other to justify their existence – a theme that is quite relevant in our strange and hazy present. Once more we have teamed up with our friend and sixth band member, the brilliant Mr. Costin Chioreanu for a video. Of course, Costin also created the album artwork. These are the first fruits of our continued co-operation and I sincerely promise that there are a lot of more strange harvests to come your way. Take a bite!”

Bjørnar E. Nilsen, söngvari sveitarinnar bætti við eftifarandi um plötuna í heild sinni:

“Continuing along the path that we started to explore on ‘The Tower’, I proudly believe ‘Stranger Times’ to be standing out as a defining work for us. It bridges the gap between styles that we have touched upon in the past, while at the same time expands our scope and includes a more solid dose of rock in the mix. To me, it represents our most ‘solid’ album to date and is clearly the best produced one. I am curious to see how our fans will react, but being the kind and intelligent persons that they are, we actually expect a lot of love… and maybe a bit of trash just to remind us that we are mere mortals.”


Harðkjarni frumsýnir myndband CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX við lagið Scared and Alone !

Breska rokksveitin Crippled Black Phoenix sem sendi frá sér plötuna Bronze í byrjun nóvember mánaðar, er tilbúin með myndband við lagið Scared and Alone sem finna má á umræddri skífu, en fyrir áhugasama er hægt að kynnast bandinu nánar á facebook síðu sveitarinnar https://www.facebook.com/CBP444

Fyrir áhugsama þá er frumkvöðull bandsins enginn annar en Justin Greaves, sem áður hefur trommað verið í hljómsveitum á borð við Earthtone9, Electic Wizard, Iron Monkey ofl.

Myndbandið er teiknað af rúmenska listamanninum Costin Chioreanu og fjallar um þunglyndi túlkað með svörtum hundi, en “black dog” er slanguryrði um þunglyndi.

Harðkjarni ásamt nokkrum vel völdum miðlum um allan heim frumsýnir umrætt myndband hér að neðan:

Án þess að fara í lélaga þýðingu á góðum texta, er hægt að lesa hér það sem Justin Greaves hafði um lagið og myndbandið að segja:

“Costin Chioreanu has created an amazing clip. His animation fits so very well that this can only come from someone, who truly understands the feeling behind this song. It is not an easy thing to connect with so I have nothing but respect and praise for Costin. ‘Scared and Alone’ speaks volumes about being cut off from the outside world and other people when the “Black Dog” bites. Depression, anxiety and mental health are becoming bigger issues and when someone speaks up, it opens a door for other people to get things off their mind. Belinda wrote the lyrics as well as doing the vocals for ‘Scared and Alone’ and she did not need to be given any direction. As always, she took the title and the music and shaped the most real and heartfelt words into a very poetic form. I am deeply satisfied with the way everything turned out, both sonically and visually.”

Costin Chioreanu, listamaður myndbandins,  hafði eftifarandi um myndbandið að segja:

“No human being can ever get completely free of depression, simply because we can never be completely happy. The root of this sick behaviour pattern is our need to always increase the intensity of our life’s pleasures – regardless of the issue. We need more and more or we fall into a hole. In this state, we pretty much resemble drug addicts. This greed is amplified by society, which imposes desires on us and once our minds have been trained to function in accordance with such parameters, it becomes increasingly difficult to get back to something simple that we have either forgotten or never known to exist. The story of ‘Scared and Alone’ gives the complete picture of this gaping hole, the inner view of an entire life from the perspective of a person with no escape.”
