“Armed”, the new video from THE MAN-EATING TREE — the atmospheric metal band featuring former SENTENCED drummer Vesa Ranta alongside current/former members of POISONBLACK, REFLEXION and EMBRAZE — can be seen below. The clip was filmed by Mutant Koala Pictures, a production company based in the band’’s hometown of Oulu, Finland.
“Armed” comes off THE MAN-EATING TREE‘s sophomore album, “Harvest”, which will be released on November 28 via Century Media Records. The CD was once again helmed by producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, SENTENCED, AMORPHIS) and marks the recording debut of guitarist Antti Karhu.
Commented THE MAN-EATING TREE vocalist Tuomas Tuominen: “‘Armed’ was one of the first songs written for ‘Harvest’. In essence, it’s about how precious our time here is. How it sometimes feels as if hours and years could be seized into the wrong hands and pointed at you — as they were a weapon. A weapon that cannot be disarmed. Time is a weapon that will kill everyone. Mercilessly.”
THE MAN-EATING TREE will support AMORPHIS on a European tour which will kick off on December 26 in Jens, Germany. Also scheduled to appear on the bill is LEPROUS.
