Very interesting... I’ve got to give it up to Nightfall, if for nothing else, the astonishing originality of the video for Ambassador of Mass they released today. On the video’s unique concept and conception, vocalist Efthimis Karadimas commented:
"The story depicted is inspired by the Greco-Persian wars in the 5th century BC. The video is purely based on the ancient technique of Shadow Puppet Theatre evolved and widely used in different areas of the world eons ago. Every character, ship, map, etc you see in it has been built from scratch especially for that motion clip. The video has been directed by Achilleas Gatsopoulos, a prominent master of visual arts, based in the city of Berlin. I am sure you haven't seen anything similar around!"
He’s got that right.
Ambassador of Mass is off Nightfall’s new album, Astron Black and the Thirty Tyrants, due out August 31 on Metal Blade.
