Metal outfit Etherius debuted the lead single from its new album this week.
The band debuted the video for the song ‘The Rivers of Sand And Blood’ Friday through Metal Injection. The video places the band in a large junkyard as it performs its new instrumental track. The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Chaos. Order. Renewal, which is scheduled for release April 17.
Etherius guitarist Jay Tarantino talked about the video’s treatment in the interview with Metal Injection.
“The idea for ‘The Rivers of Sand and Blood’ video was to create a visual that was fast-paced and chaotic to match the intensity of the music,” he said. “Tom Flynn, who has worked with Lamb of God, Ice-T and Buckcherry among others, shot and directed it. He did an amazing job capturing the energy we were going for. It was also a lot of fun to smash a bunch of equipment with a sledgehammmer. The engines and heavy machinery featured in the shots really emphasize the industrial ambient sounds going on throughout the song.”
Chaos. Order. Renewal. was co-produced by Tarantino, Etherius drummer Zaki Ali and guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi. Chris Clancy (Mutiny Within) mixed and mastered the record. Along with co-producing the album, Vivaldi also makes a guest appearance on the song ‘Unity in Darkness.’
The track listing for Chaos. Order. Renewal. is noted below.
Tarantino spoke highly of the album during his interview with Metal Injection.
“Chaos. Order. Renewal. has something for everyone,” he said. “Whether you like metal or not, or whether or not you are a musician, the music has elements that anyone can appreciate. It’s more aggressive than our previous release, but there is still plenty of melody. We cut out the filler and get right to the point on every song. These songs were meant to be played live, which you can see and hear for yourself on our U.S. tour.”
Etherius is scheduled to launch a tour in support of its new LP March 15 in Amityville, NY at a benefit concert to raise funds for people battling cancer. Following that performance, the band will take time off to rest and recharge before launching a full-on tour April 9 in Denver, CO. The tour is scheduled to run through April 29 in Seattle, WA. It features performances in cities, such as Asheville, NC; Lakewood, OH and Clifton, NJ.
The tour’s schedule is noted below.
