New Video “Born In Flames” Issued By Athorn

German melodic death metal act Athorn issued a new video clip for the song “Born in Flames.” The song appears on the latest album “Necropolis” – a post-apocalyptic concept album.

With “Born In Flames” the Germans open another chapter of the space western and this time the band reveals a soft side, as the tune is a genuine heavy metal ballad. The video shows singer Carsten Frank and in proper style Björn Spier on the acoustic guitar as comic characters which take turns with filigrane designed image sequences that reflect the topic of the epic concept album, including zombies, space cowboys, priests and not to forget the fine portion of end time romantic which is essential for a true ballad.
