Hällas - "Carry On" (official video)

Το τραγούδι "Carry On" οι Hällas το είχαν πρωτοπαρουσιάσει ως lyric video. Πλέον κυκλοφορεί και το "κανονικό" βίντεο. Προέρχεται από τον δίσκο των Σουηδών pomp rockers "Conundrum" που κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Μάρτιο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Two years after the release of their highly esteemed album, Exerpts From A Future Past, Swedish Adventure Rock quintet Hällas sprinkle some magic dust with Conundrum, the final installment of their mysterious trilogy.

Dark retro rock with a dash of mystery successfully invites its listeners for a cosmic ride through a parallel world. Somewhere between the open spaces of hidden soundscapes and straight-up 70’s rock riffs, the sonic maze of Conundrum draws you out of the everyday life.

Hällas evokes a bizarre world that reveals a magnificent reincarnation of progressive art rock, psychedelic and folk in its most authentic way. The opening track “Ascencion” beguiles with rising atmospheric synth spheres and leads its listener directly to the clutches of “Beyond Night And Day”.

Strong 70’s rock vibes merging with psychedelic sounds simultaneously reflects the soundscape of the track and Conundrum itself. Heavy rock riffs enhanced with synthesizer melodies and carefully refined progressive licks define “Tear Of A Traitor”.

Followed by the hymn “Carry On”, these overwhelming songs truly highlight the album. Once you start listening, Conundrum floods your senses, ingests your mind and draws you deep into a psychedelic sonic adventure rock labyrinth from which you cannot escape.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Swedish psychedelic adventure rock quintet Hällas have been turning heads in the scene for years, and are now on the eve of the release of their new album, Conundrum, available digitally today and in CD/vinyl format on March 20 via Napalm Records.

Plus, as an exclusive vinyl special for fans, the album will not only be available in black Gatefold, but also in strictly limited green Gatefold vinyl. Conundrum is the final installment of the band’s mysterious trilogy of albums, inviting listeners on a cosmic ride through a parallel world!

The band flexes their sonic muscles amid massive soundscapes and spacey 70’s rock riffs, channeling influences ranging from Pink Floyd and The Devils Blood. Hällas evokes a bizarre, intriguing world that reincarnates elements of progressive art rock, psychedelic prog and folk, but in an entirely authentic way.

Hällas invites listeners into a cosmic adventure accompanied by music forged on tales of sorcery and courage. In celebration of the upcoming release of Conundrum, the band has released a dreamlike music video for their first single “Tear of a Traitor”.

Tommy Alexandersson’s outrageous, slightly gritty voice draws you directly into a mystic atmosphere beyond the real world while flowing Instrumentals and retro fantasy bend the mind.»

Kasper Eriksson: «In order to make the album as diverse as possible, we felt that we needed to include some elements influenced by something else other than just progressive rock and heavy metal. Apart from being a piece in the bigger, conceptual puzzle that makes Conundrum continue story-wise, we consider this song to a sort-of rock song transformed into a fast, adventurous soundtrack from a world hidden beyond our own reality.»

  1. Από ολόκληρη τη σύγχρονη σουηδική σκηνή αναβίωσης των 70's, αυτοί είναι οι καλύτεροι. Ο δίσκος θα είναι στο τοπ 10 μου για φέτος, αλλά κομμάτι σαν το Star Rider δεν έχει.

    1. Ευχάριστο άκουσμα, αλλά δεν μπορώ να πω ότι με τρέλανε. Βέβαια περί ορέξεως...
