Norwegian melodic metal band NERGARD has released a music video for the title track from their latest album “A Bit Closer To Heaven”. The video, can be seen below, was filmed at this years edition of Trondheim Metal Fest where the band was fronted by the amazing Andi Kravljaca (Aeon Zen, Thaurorod).
“The song “A Bit Closer To Heaven” is the very climax of my two albums. Both albums is a part of a two act metal opera and deals with the story of an unfortunate man that is sentenced to twenty years in prison for a crime which he did not commit. Upon his release he finds out that his wife and child has died. Blinded with grief he eventually commits suicide. This song is set to the place in the story where this man realises that his way out of the misery and to be reunited with his family is by committing suicide.”
