Fresh from their performance last year at Bloodstock Open Air in August, Romanian experimental metal ensemble Krepuskul take no prisoners when unleashing their latest music video (which can be viewed above). Here is what the band have to say about the music video and it's background:
"In a post modern, post humanist society, the individual plays the role of a simple pawn, submitting directly or indirectly to new rules. Freedom loses it's essential sense, that is to confront any established order and the psyche is emptied by personality and submitted to the new system on an idolizing way.
This is the game that the society produces in a desperate attempt to detain absolute control by any means necessary, thus creating different realities. The individual loses contact with the real world, becoming unconscious and as a result, submissive.
All meanings lose sense the moment reality is wrapped in the technological aura, thus becoming the new universe...
Psychotherapy is about the way this addictive power game is created. The masses are bombarded with negative information, creating problems that society itself tries to solve back. By fear, the individual is reduced to the stage of a trained animal and someone, unknown, seizes absolute power."
The video was directed and edited by Costin Chioreanu (www.twilight13media.com), the technical assistant and makeup artist was Gina Sandulescu, the male character was played by Nikolay Fikov.
The song will be included on Krepuskul's upcoming new album which is to be launched in the beginning of 2014. The song was recorded by Adrian "OQ" Neagoe at Liveset studio in Cluj Napoca, Romania (www.liveset.ro). The mastering work was conducted by Marius Costache (www.mariuscostache.ro).
In spring 2013, Krepuskul will hit the road again on an european tour called "PsychoTOURapy" and the dates will be announced soon, so stay tuned.
