DRACONIAN: trauern um Sophia!
Die schwedischen Gothic Doom Metaller DRACONIAN werden am 30. Oktober 2020 ihr siebtes Album mit dem Titel "Under A Godless Veil" via Napalm Records veröffentlichen. Passend dazu gibt es nun das Lyric-Video zu "Sorrow Of Sophia" zu sehen.
Sängerin Anders Jacobsson kommentiert:
""Sorrow Of Sophia" was the first lyric, and one of the first songs written for "Under A Godless Veil". This was years ago now, and I remember I’d just finished a lecture on Gnostic cosmology by Terence McKenna. He’d been speaking of the goddess Sophia’s ordeal and her story affected me on a very deep level. It’s sad yet heart-wrenchingly majestic bringing all of existence into it. I knew I had to do something with it for DRACONIAN as I was already having a few of Johan’s new song-ideas. This sparked what was later to become a whole album inspired by this story. It started here, with this song.
“Sorrow Of Sophia” is a complex song about a complex spiritual being. With it comes a diverse nature consisting of an initial minimalist soulful expression to feisty, heavy riffing with a harsh demonic formula to post-rock melancholia and symphonic soundscapes. Heike’s pure and crystalline vocals are beautifully entrenched holding the very spirit of the song."
