The Italian metallers Tethra released their sophomore album Like Crows for the Earth in February of this year. And I daresay that their record left quite an impression on the RMR crew.
The band now doubled down and released a new and quite controversial clip based on their title track. Never fear, there is none of the gore-laden splatterfests prevalent in Extreme Metal on this video. Yet, Tethra use suicide as the venue to put their point across and this type of imagery is indeed powerful. Good stuff.
To this the band states:
“The deliberately strong and provocative images you can see in the video are meant to reflect on the indiscriminate exploitation that human beings are doing daily to the damage of the planet hosting us. Our symbolic sacrifice wants to be a warning and a message: we are one with nature, and only by taking care of it we can favor the rebirth and have a less dark future.”
Nuf’ said, here is the video:
