Luxembourgish Extreme Progressive Metallers MINDPATROL have released ‘Stainless White’, the first single of their new album “Ikaria”. The video clip was recorded by local film-maker Cindy Santos in a quite unique 24-hour-shooting-day. Next to the mandatory band performance, the band added a narrative to the video, which summarizes parts of the album’s story. Given how “Ikaria” is accompanied by a self-written novel, Mindpatrol found themselves in a joking mood: Similar to how legendary German film-maker Uwe Boll once invited his harshest critics to a boxing match – and beat them to a pulp, being an experienced fighter after all –, Mindpatrol invited local literature critic Jérôme Jaminet to appear in their clip. Together with Ana Carina Marinheiro Neto, he offers an insight in the problems that hold the city of Ikaria hostage. ‘Stainless White’ is a special song for the band, written in a fully collaborative manner after the recent line-up changes. All members added their share in order to show what Mindpatrol stands for in 2021: everything at once! Be it a mighty groove, be it an uplifting lead melody, be it a moody, introspective moment, as long as it fits the mood, Mindpatrol incorporate it into their music.
“Ikaria” is released on June 4th via Green Zone Music.
