TWILIGHT'S EMBRACE - New Video Released

Nottingham (UK) based doom metal trio Twilight's Embrace released a brand new video clip for the track named "Dying Earth". The track hails from their recently released EP Penance, the self-produced EP whic was released on 23rd February and spans four epic doom/death soundscapes, reminiscent of genre pioneers including Katatonia, November's Doom, Agalloch, Insomnium, Primordial and similar.
Vocalist Andy Walmsley says about the video: "I've always been fascinated by the ways that different cultures have historically deified and worshipped the earth and the elements, and while I'm not advocating for a return to that form of primitivism, I do still wonder whether, in our endless pursuit of progress and personal gain, we haven't lost something, our sense of our connection to the world around us. That's what this song deals with, the realisation that we may have lost something important, and that it's simply too late to get that back and undo all the damage done. Our video is an abstract take on this theme, showing the band as survivors of some sort of environmental catastrophe that humankind allowed to happen through their negligence. The earth is dying, taking its inhabitants with it, and we are no exception... As a band we are totally uninterested in the usual cliché of the group doing a playthrough in a warehouse or garage, with all the hackneyed fretboard shots and close-ups of the double kick pedal. So when the songs on Penance were written, we made the decision that we would present one of the songs as a short film instead. With the expanse of the Peak District on our doorstep and the prospect of wintery weather drawing in, we knew this gave us the perfect opportunity to portray one interpretation of the lyrics to "Dying Earth", and this is the result."
Video was directed by Eric Revill-Dews of Bigger Boat Film, and was filmed on location in Derbyshire, England. You can watch the video in the player below. Link
