Metal Shock Finland is proud to premiere the video of the new single “Stone Temple” by Swedish rockers COLORSTONE.
Watch the video below:
“Stone Temple” is taken from COLORSTONE‘s new album, Steam, their second release on CS Records.
Guitarist Fredrik Bergengren, lead vocalist Johan Dahlström, and keyboardist Tommy Falk commented the song and the setting of the video shortly after they wrapped up the filming about a month ago with the crew from Smartfilm (Peter Carlsson, Dan Persson, Ulrika Grönlund, Christina Olsson, and Gustav Bergengren). Actress Sofie Drené is featured in the video.
Tommy: “It was recorded in a nice area in the east of where we all live, in an old house in Österlen that’s been “frozen” since 1925. It was owned by a woman with poor finances, therefore it’s not in very good shape. But good for us—the interior is… romantic, in a sense.”
Johan: “On this song, Fredrik had a rather clear picture of what he wanted to express. He had some keywords in the song. He also came up with the title “Stone Temple” (that I love!). I changed and added some words to the lyrics. I do hope I kept his initial feeling in the song. To me it’s about in fear, letting the material world take over until it nearly suffocates you.”
Fredrik: “It was very important to me to capture the solitary feeling of the lyrics. We edited it at Smartfilm, my production company. I hope you will find it a beautiful video and that you will feel the song in your heart.”
