Croatian post-rock/metal outfit Emphasis will release their brand new album, Black.Mother.Earth – collection of songs that are slow, heavy and doomy, with monolithic guitar riffs and massive rhythm sections – on April 28th via Geenger Records [pre-order]. Today we have the pleasure to premiere the band’s video for “Muna / Iam“, the first two songs on the band’s forthcoming 6-song full-length.
The band comments: “Directed by Dino Topolnjak and based on the screenplay by Kristina Štebih, the two-track video takes place in a dark and gloomy forest somewhere in the region of Međimurje, conjuring the mystical atmosphere of the band’s latest album titled Black.Mother.Earth. Following the solemn intro, the beautiful female vocals from “Muna” add tension to the unknown forest path taken by a young woman, played by the actress Ena Jagec. The dreamy melody interspersed with arpeggio guitars is suddenly broken when the next track, “Iam”, starts. The latter features desperate and haunting vocals that lead the plot to its peak, i.e. the seductive experimental dance by Vilim Poljanec. The two sides – Innocence and Violence – eventually merge, completely taking each other’s personalities.”
