Ahead of the band’s forthcoming headline tour, SikTh, have revealed a new video for the song “The Aura” from their recently released new album The Future In Whose Eyes?
The new clip, already confirmed as Scuzz TV’s Spankin’ NewVideo Of The Week, was directed by SikTh’s own Mikee W Goodman, here he comments on video concept: “The Aura” was initially lyrically inspired by a day I spent with a magical being. It then spiralled into dreamscape memories and reflections. I tried to bring this out in the music video. The shadows of dancers appear now and then which is a direct link to the chorus lyrics. The rest of the story is told through one actress playing the flower being role. All this is intercut with band footage. “
Within a year of their inception, Vrona had already performed at Bloodstock andMammothfest, and shared stages with the likes of Dorje, Cambion, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and more. Their first EP ‘A Lapse In Time’ released in early 2016 gained them critical acclaim with their instrumental offerings being compared to a vocal-less mix of Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool.
2017 sees a marked change in the band as they release two new tracks on October 25th and unveil a new twist to their ever evolving sound – the introduction of vocalist Jamie Ball.
The two track release entitled ‘Impermanence’ still showcasesVrona‘s brand of progressive ambient metal. However, the addition of vocals, and the acceptance of more outside influences into their melting pot shows that the band are not afraid to change things up.
Gentle Giant have released their first taster from their new Prog compilation album ‘Three Piece Suite’ remixed by Steven Wilson, out September 29th, the fabulous ‘Peel The Paint’.
You can check out the video below:
Gentle Giant—Three Piece Suite is a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from the band’s first three albums (Giant, Acquiring The Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo. There are nine tracks from the albums, plus a pre-debut song, remixed by Steven Wilson. The choices were determined by the limited availability of multi-track master tapes from the era. Only a few songs from each album are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost.
