After the 2021 debut EP “Ov Behest” Finnish Blackened Death Metal band ANIMA HERETICAE has been working on their first full length album to be released in autumn 2023. The band’s unique sound is a combination of Scandinavian Melodic Metal, Death Metal with Black Metal elements. The music goes in symbiosis with the visuals, both in live shows and on videos. Now released music video “Cimmerian Darkness” presents a view to the upcoming debut album’s beauty and epicness.
The music video is directed by the ANIMA HERETICAE drummer Teppo Ristola and as an actor there is Jussi Matilainen from WHERE’S MY BIBLE.
“Even though pretty much anything we do has the sense of darkness and despair, this song has also a hint of hope in it. Creating new music is quite therapeutic and healing experience for us. And so was the writing of this song – a meditative and self-reflecting process. Some times as wondering this world we live in it feels like we are living in Cimmerian darkness on the edge of the world.” Ville Rutanen and Taneli Jämsä background the song.
