German extreme black metallers DARK FORTRESS have released a new video “Chrysalis”, taken from their current album “Venereal Dawn”, on Century Media Records. Check it out below. DARK FORTRESS frontman and lyricist Morean says about the video: “Left for dead after the ritual, the protagonist clings to the thin remaining thread of his waning life – a life he knows is no longer his. Mutation has begun to erode his humanity from the inside, while the world around him decays in the onslaught of poison rain steadily washing away the traces of human civilization”
The video was brought into being by Daniël van Nes (www.nessed.nl) the imaginative mind that also created the stunning artwork for “Venereal Dawn”.
The band further about the clip: “We are proud to present our newest clip to the song ‘Chrysalis’ off our new album ‘Venereal Dawn’, created by our cover artist Daniël van Nes in collaboration with Sanja Maier-Hasagic, Morean and acclaimed American modern dancer and choreographer Jack Gallagher. Both Daniël and Jack got deeply into the song and its story and managed to hit exactly the right vibe for what we wanted. Our music and lyrics are visually very evocative, so we felt the song calls for an approach that almost feels more like a short movie than a regular metal music video. We are very pleased with the final result, and think the images superbly manage to capture the desolation of the protagonist, whose infection by living light (and subsequent initiation of a process that leads to him changing species) becomes apparent in this chapter of our album. Enjoy!”
