Black Tree Vultures debuted the video for its new single over the weekend.
The band debuted the lyric video for its single ‘The Unforeseen‘ Sunday. The song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming EP III, which is scheduled for release Feb. 12, 2021.
The video’s debut came more than a week after the band debuted the song by itself. The fully CG video features a woman making her way through a post apocalyptic setting, going to different settings, such as a church, a cold, wintery setting (that maybe is supposed to be London) and her own lair of sorts.
The musical arrangement featured in the new song is a heavy, no nonsense guitar-driven work that lends itself to comparisons to works from bands, such as Metallica, Stone Sour, and Megadeth. Guitarist Aaron “Ham” Hammersley is to be applauded for his performance here. There is even a short run late in the song that sounds like it came right from one of Metallica’s classic albums. Producer Will Maya (The Answer) is credited with helping the song have such a sharp, intense sound and impact.
Drummer Jono Smith’s time keeping and bassist James “Ched” Cheeseman add their own touch to the song while front man Celyn Beynon’s vocals at times echo the sound and style of Stone Sour/Slipknot front man Corey Taylor. The whole of those parts alongside the guitars is a powerful first impression from the band.
The song’s lyrical theme is centered on the matter of a breakup, according to Beynon.
“This song started with the Chorus. “Ched” brought the riff to Aaron and Jonno and the song (though very different from what you hear today) grew from that,” he said. “Originally titled ‘Black Limousine’ the lyrical content was very different, but after a tough experience, I rewrote the lyrics to reflect this.”
“On a cloudy day on a Hill in North Dorset, amidst a break-up, I turned to a good friend for advice,” added Beynon. “They allowed me to view myself from the standpoint of someone else. In the song, I refer to a text or two I received in the middle of the break-up describing who I was and what I’d become. It made me realise that things are going to have to change and was a bit of a wakeup call! I think it’s important to write and draw from experience when it comes to music as it makes it genuine and people can connect with it.”
Black tree Vultures is scheduled to release its single worldwide on Sept. 25. .
