“Kore“, das zweite Album der australischen Symphonic Prog Band VICTORIA K ist am Wochenende herausgekommen und die Band schickt ihren animierten Clip zu ihrem Song `Pomegranate`.
Die Band lässt sich dazu aus:
“Being the first song we wrote for the record, the whole album’s sound ended up being based off this one song. Certain parts of this song take reference again from old ethnic folk sounds and scales. We wanted to incorporate ethnic instruments such as the hammered dulcimer and touberleki, (the Greek hand drum), both these sounds directly coming from Victoria Knights upbringing, we are really proud to incorporate this old and ethnic culture into our music in order to create a new sonic experience. The section of the tale that this song derives from the part of the story where Persephone eats the six pomegranate seeds, ultimately keeping her trapped in Hades for 6 months each year. We wanted to capture the feeling and emotions that come from this part of the story through the sound and lyrics. The feeling of being utterly, trapped, lost and in a state of desperation. One thing that we believe makes this song a point of difference from the rest of the album is the monologue in the song, which is taken directly from the original ancient Greek text (Homeric Hymn to Demeter) that tells this part of the story. We wanted to add a piece of authentic history to the record!“
