DOWNFALL OF GAIA: 'In The Rivers Bleak' Video Released
"In The Rivers Bleak", the new video from Germany's DOWNFALL OF GAIA, can be seen below. The song comes off the band's new album, "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes", which was released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records.
Comments the band: "This video is filmed by John Bradburn and Andy Paton on a rainy English night and delivers in a perfect way the mood we tried to capture on this record. It's completely filmed in black and white and it's a view right inside the story of our new record."
"Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes" is a concept album about an individual's struggles with living in modern, oft over-stimulated society.
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
02. Drowning By Wing Beats
03. In The Rivers Bleak
04. I Fade Away
05. Beneath The Crown Of Cranes
06. Giving Their Heir To The Masses
DOWNFALL OF GAIA eschews clichés and delivers a monolithic, yet melodic, wall of sound. The band formed in 2008 in Hannover, Germany and has released a demo CD, a split tape, a split LP, and two full-length albums.
DOWNFALL OF GAIA started out as a crust band, but quickly developed further and has become much more difficult to compare to any other bands. Over the years, their songs became longer, slower, heavier; their influences range from doom to black metal, from down-tempo, to sludge, and hardcore. Their music has an epic and majestic vibe, with enough peaks and valleys to keep listeners rooted firmly to the earth.
Since day one, the four-piece has been an active live band, not only performing Germany, but also throughout the world: Italy, the U.K., France, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the United States have been witness to their live performances. No matter if they are playing a tiny club or a big festival, DOWNFALL OF GAIA are well known for their intense live shows.
DOWNFALL OF GAIA is:
Dominik Goncalves dos Reis - Vocals/Guitar
Peter Wolff - Vocals/Guitars
