YYLVA - Debut Single And Video Released

British one-woman atmospheric black metal project Yylva released its first official music video, "A Sidhe In Throes". The video for Yylva’s debut single was directed by the talented Kathryn Gee of Zen Zero Images. The track is taken from the forthcoming debut album, The Wood Beyond The World, which will be released at a date yet to be confirmed.
Filming for this empyrean epic, just clocking in shy of nine minutes, was filmed in early January across ancient British sites in Oxfordshire and Staffordshire, which both have their own haunting tales to tell. Inspired greatly by mythology and pagan tales of old gently weave their way through the eerie landscapes of Yylva’s visionary debut.
Clare Webster, the founder and mastermind of Yylva comments: "As a harpist, I have been keen to harmonise the raucous resonance of black metal with the ethereal tones of this instrument which has seldom been done before, if not at all. I wholeheartedly believe that the music I have written is a first for the metal world and I think it deserves to be showcased in the best way possible."
Following a tragic accident just under a year ago, Yylva chooses to explore the deeper meaning behind the esoteric within her music. “Witnessing a traumatic event can destroy you, but it can also give you a new sense of being”, she states. “Through this release we wanted to express how we are all connected to the ever-turning wheel; the seasons of the earth. Life, death, rebirth, destruction, loss, prosperity, grief, joy and destiny: we are all as one.” Watch the video in the player below. Link
