Greek Gothic Metallers ELYSION, have dropped an animated lyric video for their new single “Raid The Universe”, created by Haris Kountouris – HK Visual Creations (…among so many others: ROTTING CHRIST, SABATON, MACHINE HEAD, POWERWOLF). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album “Bring Out Your Dead”, due for releaseon March 17th via Massacre Records.

Already overwhelmed with emotions and melodies to share, the unexpected pandemic adds a veil of darkness to everyone’s view of the world today. This could not leave ELYSION untouched either, as it influenced their new album when it comes to symbolism and atmosphere used on the record. Taking a few steps back and contemplating everything, it becomes clear that we are miserably failing as humanity.

The album title is a metaphor, suggesting that extreme times are requiring extreme measures to get rid of everything rotten inside us and let the healing begin.

Despite not being considered a concept album, “Bring Out Your Dead” indicates a crossover from darkness towards light; with “light being our better version, our pure nature, one that hasn’t been poisoned by the corruption of mankind”. The ten new album tracks consist of a lot of different compositions, thus letting many different shades of their musical character show. Apart from Elysion’s distinctive own identity being prominent throughout the songs, it gave them great excitement to experiment with heavier sounds, a more alternative atmosphere and dynamics that led to an evolved sound compared to their previous releases.
