LLNN launches new official video ‘Appeaser’, featured on the upcoming album Deads to be released on the 27th of April. Exclusive premiere via powerofmetal.dk.
“We are fascinated by how the human mind tends to interpret random images, or patterns of light and shadows, as creatures and structures.
A psychological phenomenon called “Pareidolia”. And how music and visuals can evoke certain emotions in us and let our imagination unfold into abstract storytelling.
These are the thoughts behind the music video and the album artwork of “Deads” (with photographs by drummer Rasmus G. Sejersen).
The overall album theme of “Deads” is about births and downfalls of civilizations in other worlds throughout the universe.
From creation to final decay, the depletion of the host – scenes which inspired the music video.
All the footage is filmed mostly with macro lenses to create the extreme close-ups in combination with a few wide shots.
Created in a minimalistic setup in our parents home. (Combined with some heavy Halo Reach 2v2 gaming. Come get some!). “
After a split EP with LA’s WOVOKA in the summer of 2017, LLNN now return with their sophomore album, „Deads“, which evades all the pitfalls of the sophomore slump. Produced by Jacob Bredahl and mastered by Tue Madsen, „Deads“ is an erosive, abrasive, dystopian, apocalyptic monolith of monstrous dimensions: more compact, yet more complex and organic all at the same time. LLNN have now perfected the amalgamization of the stringed instruments section (bass, guitar) with keys player Ketil Sejersen’s dominant 80’s Sci-Fi movie-esque synth layers, which are inspired by composers like Brad Fiedel, Vangalis, John Carpenter and Stanley Kubrick as much as by Sci-Fi / horror games like Silent Hill, Dead Space, Halo & Limbo.
Not much else to say, except this: LLNN will be unleashing their custom take on contemporary post metal supporting Vancouver’s BISON on their April European tour, including performances at Roadburn, Desert Fest (London) and Pelagic Fest.
