VIDEO NEWS: Crown Reveal Video For Recent Single ‘Illumination’
French industrial metal band Crown have revealed a music video for their recent single Illumination, taken from their forthcoming album The End of All Things,
“The road to this one was long, and the journey was quite intense,” says founder and vocalist Stéphane Azam. “A strange and ambiguous coincidence: our album title fits almost perfectly to these dark times we are living in. The whole world has drastically changed in the last few months, we are at the dawn of a new era. Maks Loriot, who created our album design and the Ilumination video, made a reference to Ingmar Bergman’s visionary movie The Seventh Seal and its famous chess game. What if mankind was playing a game against the end of existence, an allegory of life, and what if the chess game as an allegory disappeared, it would not only be the end of existence, but also the end of death, therefore nothingness. The circle is complete, and the circle is burning.”
The End of All Things is due for release on 16th April 2021 via Pelagic Records, available to pre-order HERE.
