HEROD releases new official video “Reckoning”

Here is the powerful 1st Single by Swiss Progressive Sludge Metal UnitHEROD (Pelagic Reords)Exclusive Denmark premiere right here on The Power of Metal.dk webzine. Enjoy!

Video Quote:

"The track “Reckoning” is the first single of the upcoming album “Sombre Dessein”. 
The concept behind “Sombre Dessein” is “the rise and fall of dictatorship & benevolent dictatorship” – This and the modern human condition/the disease of consumerism. 

“Reckoning” in particular, is the chapter of our story where we begin to see the cracks in the foundations… the turbulence and tearing down of initial visions/misinformation. Additionally, it was the first song that has been composed for this album and was always intended to be the single. 

Bonus trivia: This is the song that the band recorded as a pre-production in order to find the next singer. Mike had reached out to Pierre after mutual friend Julien Fehlmann had told him of their vacant position. He received an MP3 of the track and took that off with him to Scotland where he was staying for a week, in a rural cottage over 100 years old. He borrowed a friend’s mobile rig and screamed down the cottage, then walked around for about an hour outside trying to get a 4G signal to upload haha. Needless to say, he got the part…

The aesthetic of the video clip is made out of old footage of ancient civilisations which have collapsed at some point. Our current civilization will not escape this statement and we might reach the end of it.“
