Die griechischen Metalgötter NIGHTFALL haben den ersten Videoclip zu ihrem anstehenden neuen Album „Astron Black And The Thirty Tyrants“ exklusiv auf ihrer Landing Page veröffentlicht. Klickt hier {http://www.metalblade.com/nightfall/} und checkt den Clip zum Song „Ambassador Of Mass“ an!

NIGHTFALL Sänger Efthimis Karadimas kommentiert den Clip wie folgt: „The story depicted is inspired by the Greco-Persian wars in the 5th century BC. The video is purely based on the ancient technique of Shadow Puppet Theatre evolved and widely used in different areas of the world eons ago. Every character, ship, map, etc you see in it has been built from scratch especially for that motion clip. The video has been directed by Achilleas Gatsopoulos, a prominent master of visual arts, based in the city of Berlin. I am sure you haven’t seen anything similar around!“

Regiesseur Achilleas Gatsopoulos hat Folgendes zu sagen: „After our initial talks and meetings with Efthimis, we decided to approach the video in a challenging and unconventional way. We chose to use shadow puppetry and push its boundaries through modern technology in order to create something really unique; something that could best convey the epic scale of our story. Considerable research ensued, and the storyline was constructed according to the structure and lyrics of the song, sprinkled with a touch of mythology, while staying true to the actual historical facts. The design and construction of the puppets were done in collaboration with fine artist Hara Kolaiti, referencing on the one hand the Ancient Greek vases‘ depictions of greek warriors of the time, and on the other, the numerous detailed reliefs of Xerxes and his warriors in Persepolis. In total, more than thirty meticulously detailed puppets and backgrounds were created for the video. These were shot one by one and then composited into scenes digitally. The aim was to take Shadow Puppetry as a traditional medium, and explore its cinematic potential. Thus, scenes were created both in two dimensional space, as well as in three dimensional epic camera shots. The result is a trully original and unconventional music video that best complements Efthimis‘ musical vision.“

Die Band selbst bezeichnet ‚Astron Black And The Thirty Tyrants‘ als das bislang beste NIGHTFALL Album und erhöht so die Erwartungen ins Unermessliche: „We have worked hard and we’ve put lots energy and effort in the details of the production. The outcome is massive and believe can attract any metal fan’s attention.“

Der 43-minütige 12-Tracker erscheint in Europa am 27./30. August und in Nordamerika am 31. August.
