SAKEM: Official Video For New Song HANGMAN
The official video for the song “Hangman” from Italian groove metallers SAKEM can be seen below. The track, a rough stoner metal song, is taken from the band’s new album, “New War Disorder”, which will be released on January 2017.
Asked if SAKEM have a concept theme running across the album, vocalist Lexx Kriminalstar said: “Yeah, the whole album is an inner journey aimed at the subversion of what is outside. This song, Hangman stands for “As Above so Below”. The Hanged is a metaphor for the fall. The lack of ground under your feet, breath suspended in the air, while mandrake roots stay hidden underground”.
Lexx also talked about SAKEM‘s goal with the album “While SAKEM‘s lyrics are filled with references to occult studies, the band targets a wider audience, stretching out from labels and niches: catchy riffs and melodies are meant to open the Pandora vase a little, enough to reach alot of people still unaware of certain themes”.
The video for Hangman was directed by Michael Gardenia (Destrage, Alteria) in the surreal ghost town Consonno.
It was first premiered on PureGrainAudio and Metalhead and is now publicly available.
