You are currently viewing GAEREA release music video for secret track “Dormant”.

Would you submit yourself to human torture to go beyond your limits to expressing art? Voluntary suffering for the greater goal in pursuit of artistic excellence is what one of the members of Cathartic Black Metal act GAEREA went through for the visualisation of “Dormant”.

The video (recorded by the great Claudio Marino, distinguished for working with giants like BEHEMOTH, WATAIN, SHINING) simply can’t be classified as a music video to give visualisation to the song. It’s an 8 minute excruciating compilation of being waterboarded, trapped in a cycle of unending pain, with each passing moment feeling like an eternity, time becomes the cruellest enemy.

“Dormant” is a ghost track, a song only available on the (sold out) Media book from their recently released album “Mirage”. Out of billions of people, a mere group of just 1349 held ownership of this exceptional track.

GAEREA comments: “Complementing the song’s aural journey, the video art installation accompanying “Dormant” delves into the anguish and struggle for survival. The visuals depict the main character, trapped and enclosed in a tormenting world, as water relentlessly pours over his body, simulating drowning and suffocation. This immersive and visceral experience offers a harrowing glimpse into the protagonist’s fight for life, evoking a range of emotions and challenging viewers to confront their own mortality.”

GAEREA are set to embark on their North American tour starting today, Friday 29th, with WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, BLACKBRAID and HOAXED as supporting acts.
