“The Bad Day”, the first video from 6008 DAYS, the new Italian rock band featuring singer Roberto Messina (SECRET SPHERE), drummer Marco Lazzarini (LUCKY BASTARDZ), guitarist Valerio Bulzoni (LINES N’ NOSES) and bassist Enrico Carducci (OVRHOL), can be seen below. The clip was written, directed and produced by celebrated visionary Antonio Masiello, whose interest “is oriented towards opportunities that, involving several aspects of education and personal experience, use new technologies as a way of expression and a vehicle of ideas in an image — communication world,” according to a press release.
The artistic interaction between the band and the director represents the perfect match between the two styles. Lyrics, music and images merge into an author-marked concept video clip born from the vision of the band to apply a countdown of 6008 days to our existence, through which our sleepy consciousness can be awaken. 6008 days left to free one self, to realize and atone everyone’s faults towards a world that is destined to self-destruction. 6008 days to think of a new approach to reality, too often marked by the idealism of “need” and too much into the loop “produce – use – die” introduced by the consumerism and multinational corporations.
Video description: “A modern Messiah (Roberto Messina) resuscitates — unaware — in our days and in his roaming he finds himself in situations (unfortunately) dramatically “normal”. Moral and physical downfall, paradoxical circumstances reveal the truth behind the consumer era and the media distortion of reality; “the medium becomes the real message” [cit. McLuhan] and the final sentence is the total paradox of supporting the watcher to never lose hope for his own salvation. A dreamlike trip, through the metaphor of a resurrected Christ, to find each one of us aware and so to blame. An invitation to think about the reality, to change the rules of the establishment and build a new sustainable world. The age of Own without Being is going to an end, the countdown just started, up to the last one Bad Day.”
According to the press release, “6008 DAYS play rock as defined by grit and melody together, fine and essential arrangements, a musical proposal of immediate impact that still holds a depth and variety of musical ideas gradually unveiled by the listener.”
“We come from the metal and hard rock background, out of which we keep the huge energy and freedom of expression that we use to communicate with a large and wide variety of listeners; basically, anyone who really loves ROCK in its widest terms,” the band states.
