Kansas City group Hyborian burst into the world of heavy metal last month with the release of the groovy, retro stoner metal-esque singles “Maelstrom” and “Dead Lies Dreaming,” cut from upcoming debut album “Hyborian: Volume I,” which is hitting stores on March 17th, 2017 via The Company.
Wasting no time in keeping new fans stocked with tasty jams, Hyborian is today revealing a brand new music video for new track “As Above, So Below,” This video is the first to be released from “Hyborian: Volume I” and was directed by Alec Nicholas.
The title and chorus of “As Above, So Below” reference a quote from the fundamental Hermetic-movement text, The Emerald Tablet, as dissected by famed English occultist, magician, poet and novelist Aleister Crowley.
Frontman and guitarist Martin Bush says, “The song is about how time is cyclical and nothing really matters in the big scheme of things. The title/hook is a Crowley quote, and we feel like it’s a pretty good intro to the band, our concept, and our sound. This track hits hard, and as the first track, sets up the stories we tell throughout the rest of the record.”
