Angra Posts “Magic Mirror” Video Online

After having premiered four videos for the album “Ømni,” Angra return in 2019 with quite a bang. The band has shared a new video for the song “Magic Mirror” – a very iconic composition from the most recent album. Watch below.

Inspired by the acidity of Rafael Bittencourt’s questioning lyrics, the director Pedro Jorge worked on the screenplay for “Magic Mirror” and portrayed its topic with subtlety and poetry. The video clip includes the presence of Jaqueline Oliveira and Jéssica Batista – two professional fighters and real warriors in their own lives.

The reflection from the magic mirror reveals that what bothers us in other people is in fact what we need to learn and understand about ourselves. Foes and people that we don’t have empathy for give us the opportunity to discover a shocking pathway of personal growth.

“For this video clip, I wanted to show that what we see in the others is actually something inside us,” reflects guitarist Bittencourt.

“Filming the video clip for ‘Magic Mirror’ was really important to the band because it’s one of my favorite songs from the new record and also because I thought that it had to have a video clip that represented it. We recorded it in a very nice and creative location and I especially like the fighter scenes in the end that show that they’re only one person,” explains bass player Felipe Andreoli.

Fans already consider “Magic Mirror” as one of the classics in Angra’s catalog. It combines the traditional heavy metal formulas, the band’s trademark sound, and the unmistakable voice of Fabio Lione.

Scientist Premiere New Music Video “Magick Mirror”

Chicago’s favorite avant metal alchemists SCIENTIST released the brain-contorting wares of their complex yet compelling Barbelith full-length earlier this month.

Today, they debut the visual accompaniment to Barbelith track “Magick Mirror” noting, “‘Magick Mirror’ is perhaps the greatest example of what SCIENTIST accomplishes as a band and what Barbelith represents musically. The song is brimming with the creative incorporation of melody, dirty riffs, somewhat bluesy leads, light black metal musicality, and the integration of a progressive twist… some of the most creative elements of songwriting SCIENTIST practice…are to be found on the track…”
