“Dancing With The Ghosts,” the brand new cinematic video from Croatian symphonic metal band Angelseed, can be seen below.
The clip was filmed in Zadar by Igor Goic and Kreathia Studio. The storyline is a slightly twisted exploration on the theme of soul cages. The fundamental idea of the storyboard is based on the five elements philosophy in Japanese Buddhism, known as godai, whose elements are Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void. Opposed to the five elements, there’s a diabolical and materialistic demon queen, the creator of earthly imprisonment.
Drummer Jurica Baljak explains: “It’s a metaphorical journey into the core of personal darkness where each element is found stranded in its own prison. It represents the dichotomy of life and death through the image of acceptance, finding purpose and struggle with demons in search for redemption. This video is about the journey of mankind.”
The “Dancing With The Ghosts” track comes off Angelseed’s “Crimson Dyed Abyss,” which was released in 2015 via Sliptrick Records. Stay tuned for info on a new album, due out in 2018.
