Behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of “Farewells”, the new video from Austrian metallers THE SORROW, can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by Manuel Bauer, a master student at the University Of Arts in Linz, Austria, who made the video as a semester project.
“Farewells” comes off THE SORROW‘s third, self-titled album, which entered the official chart in the band’s home country at position No. 24. The follow-up to 2009’s “Origin Of The Storm” was recorded at Principal Studios (DIE TOTEN HOSEN, IN EXTREMO) in Senden, Germany with producer Toni Meloni and was mixed by Sky van Hoff. Mastering duties were handled by Jens Dreesen.
“The Sorrow” was released in North America on December 7 through Artoffact Records.
According to a press release, “The band have learned from the creative process of ‘Origin Of The Storm’, which was marked by tight schedules and high expectations. They have become totally independent in artistic terms, having embarked on a search to find themselves. The result? Their most impressive recording to date. ‘The Sorrow’ — the album — is unusual, courageous and oozes a musical atmosphere from the first to the last note which is unequalled in today’s metal world.
“THE SORROW have redefined themselves, remaining faithful to themselves at the same time. Their classic recipes have given way to an irrepressible urge to explore new terrain. The product of their labours consists of 13 unique songs which combine everything that makes metal great.
“The new album by THE SORROW not only sees the band break new ground — it also takes its listeners onto musical virgin soil.”
