Oakland-based post metal outfit Secrets of the Sky have premiered the official video for their track “Angel in Vines”, which will appear on their forthcoming sophomore full-length, Pathway. The huge, emotive track is set to a strange yet visually stunning clip directed and edited by Andrew Nethery (Melvins, etc). Guitarist Clayton Bartholomew comments on the new video:
“For this video, we went back to director Andrew Nethery, who also did the video for the song ‘Decline’ from our first record, To Sail Black Waters. He did a great job for that video and was an easy guy to work with. For the ‘Angel In Vines’ video, we let him run with his own vision. The song itself relates to the loss of innocence, and he found an interesting analogy to express this same sentiment, while keeping the video abstract and not just giving away the premise of the song. We like that he was able to avoid cliché and the imagery he was able to capture is a definite work of art on its own.”
The video can be viewed after the break.
Pathway will be released on May 19 via Metal Blade. Pre-orders can be found here. The band’s upcoming tour dates can be found after the break as well.
