Hypno5e release Lava from the Sky2023-01-18 by Trey STAFF | 14 Comments
|French avant-garde metal outfit HYPNO5E today unveils their new video for “Lava From The Sky.” The track comes by way of the band’s sixth studio album, Sheol, set for release on February 24th via Pelagic Records.|
Once more, these four visionary musicians and cinematographers take us back to the lost shores of the Paleolithic Lake Tauca, where we dive deeper into its dark source to find vibrant visions of a memory both distant and hazy as well as warm and evocative. Sheol shows HYPNO5E at the top of their game, revealing the epitome of their idiosyncratic sound while also exploring new and exciting aspects of their artistic identity.
Elaborates main songwriter Emmanuel Jessua on “Lava From The Sky,” "For this second single of the album, I wanted to come back to being more hands-on with making the music video, as I’ve always been, and to create it entirely on my own. I also wanted to build a new visual universe and esthetic, something fresh that I hadn’t done before. To do so, I used visuals I directed together with Mickaël Pinelli, an amazing actor I’ve collaborated many times with before and of the members of the band, that I layered with paintings and drawings by my father, which also inspired the artwork for the upcoming album, Sheol.
“The video is like a dream with vintage touches of colors, oneiric visuals and editing style. It’s the first time I worked with this kind of process, and I really enjoyed it. It was almost like creating an animated film! ‘Lava From The Sky’ is the central song in the album and it includes all the new things we’ve wanted to achieve with this next opus, esthetic wise. This is why I also wanted the music video to be very special and impactful.”
Easily my favorite song on the album. It is definitely a grower, though. Not nearly as instant as their last three or four.
So fucking good
I'm saving myself for the full 'release'
Fantastic song, excited for the full LP
Last two minutes are just straight fire, jesus christ
Band is so good
What a amazing threesome of songs! And very surprising to hear César Vallejo´s poems in those. I love them.
you guys are hyping me up for the full album next month
The new album is awesome, but it definitely takes a handful of listens before everything starts to click (at least it did for me).
did you get an early copy??
I listened to the EP and it's just the same stuff they've been doing. At this point I want them to either go super-raw like Des deux lune or all-clean like Alba.
I did get an early copy, and it is basically the same thing they've been doing since Acid Mist Tomorrow. It's another refinement, and it's still really good, but definitely not what you'd call different.
Yeah, pretty much what I expected. These guys are basically their own genre at this point, calling them post-metal is kind of not doing them justice
Yeah, they're barely post metal at this point but there's really no where else to put them for convenience.
