Groundbreaking Grecian progressive metal / rock band RAW IN SECT have unveiled their official video for the song “Arena“.
The track, which melds traditional Greek folk music with metallic guitars and attitude, hails from the upcoming release “Kitro“. The forthcoming new album will arrive on July 6 and is currently available for pre-order at THIS LOCATION.
Lead vocalist / guitarist Kostas Diamandis comments on the song and video:
“Arena is tied with Athens like a wordplay. In Greek it’s called “Athena” so the words resemble each other. The song/video is a hymn about the city itself. The traffic, the worn out buildings, the people, the stray cats and dogs and of course the streets are all part of what composes various parts of the city that you won’t find in tourist guides.”
“Arena is meant to depict the routine/everyday life of normal people and what one sees in a real walk through the city. We wanted to do this as the city itself has been a great source of inspiration throughout the entire record and are sure it’s going to inspire the viewers as well.”
Sounds interesting, does it not? Check out the new visualizer below and along with it, the previously shared, stunning clip for “Therion” also.
