VIDEO NEWS: Between The Buried And Me Release Video For ‘The Future Is Behind Us’
Progressive metal outfit Between The Buried And Me have released the music video for The Future Is Behind Us, taken from their recently released album Colors II.
The video was directed by Erez Bader of Silent Flight Productions, commenting on the video Bader says: “While the band’s mind-blowing performance is front and center, the subtle narrative begins within these quite literal white walls, which in this video I think of as a sort-of temple. The “sculpture-people” as I call them (who represent the first album), congregate at this towering, abstract painting within the white walls; a holy conduit they’ve sought to undergo a long-awaited dark ritual. Tommy floats past the world, carrying this growing darkness as it blooms around him in the wilderness and is brought into our cities, eventually culminating in the dark sludge that entirely consumes the white walls themselves. Within the darkness, the sculptures birth a child – a creation of their own, and it’s released into our world.”
He continues: “There’s a weird transfer of power as a work of art nears completion. It becomes its own author and starts guiding you to its final form; something new entirely. So while I have my own intention behind the video, I’m forced to be cheesy and quote the new record, “I’m not the writer, it’s you.”
