Die kanadischen Power Metal Warrior RAVENOUS E.H. veröffentlichen ein animiertes Video zum Track ‚The Alder Queen‘ vom kürzlich erschienenen, hochklassigen Album „Hubris„. Gastvocals wurden hier von Nina Osegueda (A Sound Of Thunder) übernommen.
Die Band erklärt:
„This song is an alternate take on Der Erlkonig – a poem written by Goethe and later adapted into Opera by Franz Schubert – in which a father rides to get his son medical attention, while the child cries out about supernatural forces trying to claim his life (Der Erklonig – loosely translated to the Elf King or The Alder King). The father continues to console the child, telling them it is simply the child’s imagination seeing these things, but as the child finally cries that he has been captured, the father looks down to find his son has died. The Ravenous rendition features Die Erlkonigin – the Elf/Alder Queen, played by Nina Osegueda of A Sound of Thunder – and follows the trajectory of the original tale with lyrics extracted directly from the original poem from 1782.“
