Madder Mortem - "Vigil" (video)

Είκοσι χρόνια συμπληρώθηκαν φέτος από την κυκλοφορία του ντεμπούτου των Madder Mortem, "Mercury". Με αφορμή την επέτειο η Dark Essence Records επανακυκλοφορεί το album με νέο εξώφυλλο και πέντε bonus τραγούδια (τρεις επαναηχογραφήσεις και δύο νέα). Η επανακυκλοφορία αναμένεται την πρώτη εβδομάδα του Σεπτέμβρη...

Δελτίο τύπου: «While preparing for the 20th anniversary celebration of our first album, Mercury, we have for the first time opened the doors to our musical lives and our process so that a documentary film team can explore what beats at the heart of Madder Mortem.

"Vigil" is quite a special song. As one of the bonus tracks for our Mercury re-release, the main riff was written in the early 90s by Christian Ruud, our then guitar player. We were never able to forget this idea, so when we started thinking of bonus tracks for this re-release, that riff was immediately on our minds.

Madder Mortem anno 2019 worked on it and added to it in the rehearsal room, and the result is a fragile and beautiful landscape of music that we are very proud of. The lyrics are very direct and honest, and balance right on that razor’s edge between despair and hope that we feel is a Madder Mortem trademark.»

Randy M. Salo (Director): «When I first began filming the project, the band was in the rehearsal room putting the last touches on the bonus tracks for the Mercury re-release. When they began to play "Vigil", I immediately saw the music video playing out in my mind.

Experiencing the 20 years of history between the first album and that moment, I saw a mini-version of the documentary that would combine images of the hauntingly beautiful landscape of Hedmark county in winter, with the band rehearsing and recording the bonus tracks.

To give the fans a more intimate look at their journey we included many archival photos from their storied career. I hope this video will help tide over the fans until the release of the feature length film!»
