The first full length music video taken from the upcoming album ‘Atlantean Shores’ is now available!
Tom about the song and the video: ‘The Tempest And The Sea is’ one of several epic tracks on the album(s), with an extended running time and many different sections. The numerous twists and turns throughout also serve as a metaphor, as this song is all about weathering storms – about the tempestuous and often capricious nature of the sea, of nature itself, and indeed of the human spirit. As the seas may be both beautiful and terrible, tranquil and turbulent, so it is with the heart of Man.
For the video, I wanted to work with a younger and an older actor, the implication being that they may (or may not) be the same character; both facing and enduring the squalls that Time and Tide throw at us, yet with the elder, through hard-won experience, no longer daunted in confronting the storm. The recurring motifs of the Saint Christopher medallion, and of the lighthouse where the band is playing, serve as a reminder that no matter how fierce the gales that lash at us in life, there are always safe harbours to be found.
‘The Tempest and the Sea’ features David Marcelis (THORIUM, LORD VOLTURE) on vocals.
