The weekend hits as we have a huge pile of videos still to get through – 2017 is off to a great start is this is the quality and quantity of music we can expect.
Gothic – “Disillusion”
Today we’re hosting a stream of Romanian band Gothic’s ninth album. Have a squizz at this video and head on over to hear the whole thing in full.
Aversions Crown – Prismatic Abyss”
Australian metal destroyers Aversions Crown will unleash their sophomore album, Xenocide on January 20th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Today, the band has released a music video for the track “Prismatic Abyss”.
Construct – “Reflection”
Taking the uninhibited vigour of Tesseract and Periphery crossed with the likes of Scar Symmetry and Protest The Hero, Stoke-on-Trent’s Construct have a sound that is as immense as it is captivating. The Northern metallers unveil their blistering debut album, The Deity, on Saturday 4th February. Before then the progressive unit have dropped their new video single “Reflection”.
Esprit D’Air – “Rebirth”
Set to burst back on to the music scene this year, London-based Japanese rock band Esprit D’Air have released their eagerly awaited comeback single, “Rebirth”, along with a video that is out of this world! “Rebirth” is now out worldwide on iTunes and Google Play, and is the band’s first release in four years. Esprit D’Air reformed six months ago after a three year hiatus, leaving guitarist Kai to take on the role of the vocalist. He has this to tell us:
The song “Rebirth” tells the story of a man who finds his voice and sings under the stars, this leads to him becoming the saviour of his town as his voice inspires and refreshes everyone who hears it. The video reflects this.
The first and second lines allude to the beautiful view of audiences from the stage (“Aoku yureta hoshi wo matoi” – in blurred lights of the blue stars). The middle bridge implies his bright future, and how he’s moving forward towards it.
As Esprit D’Air have just reformed after three years, we feel this is our “Rebirth”.
