Dark Alternative Rock band BEHIND YOUR FEAR(aka ByF) has revealed the first song and video “Wintersun” from their upcoming debut album, entitled “Ophelia”. The album was mixed and mastered by Mr Marcel Sude. Watch “Wintersun” here:
BEHIND YOUR FEAR comments on the video “Wintersun”:
“A life without music? Unimaginable! The idea behind founding BEHIND YOUR FEAR (aka ByF) was, to provide a new possibility for the unmistakable voice of Stefanie (ex-Flowing Tears), to create the perfect setting for the unique musical style; as well as the impossibility to live without music. The first riffs were written quickly, nevertheless we took the necessary time to find the right musicians; Scorpios (Crimson Moon, ex-Melechesh) and Michael (e.g. studio drummer on two Dornenreich records) that would help develop our own, unique sound; to write songs and merge all of the necessary ingredients into a perfect symbiosis. Each song is purely dictated by the inner feeling, and because of this aspect; the songs range from fragile and intimate piano parts to complete walls of sound, enveloping every sense. A pure essence of the heart. All of these led into one musical entity – BEHIND YOUR FEAR. Special thanks to http://www.mogroach.de for the permission, to use these fantastic pictures.”
