It’s apocalypse on the high seas!
Not only will February 1st mark the release of Chontaraz’ upcoming album Speed The Bullet, the band from Hell, Norway, will also celebrate their release aboard 70000TONS OF METAL that day, carrying off metalheads from all over the world into their ruinous realm.
As a preparatory measure today, the lyric video for their final single prior to the album release, Ra Fa El, is set loose onto our world, conveying an eerie story dealing with emotional turmoil and its resolution.
The song’s haunting qualities are best described in the bands’ own words:
“Imagine a situation where you try to open up, seeking shelter and comfort with other human beings, only to be fooled, maybe even tricked again and again. As your psyche gets trapped in a corner, you are on the verge of losing yourself and feel as if a dark voice is corrupting your mind, but to fight your inner demons, you still need to reach out for help instead of abandoning your belief in your fellow human beings. This is what Ra Fa El is about, encountering despair and how to overcome it.“
Ra Fa El will be available as stream and download in stores all over the web on Friday, Jan 18th.
Where 2017s debut album Rondamauh provided the setting, Speed The Bullet will elaborately deal with the intrinsic factors which motivate us for good or bad and how they caused the post-apocalyptic world of Chontaraz to come into being.
