Iconic vocalist LANCE KING has revealed a new video, “Reaction Formation,” from his second solo album, ReProgram, released last week via his own Nightmare Records. The video is available to view for the first time today here.
With “Reaction Formation,” the original voice behind Pyramaze, Avian, Balance of Power and Gemini has delivered a visually-immersive video that perfectly complements KING’s powerful progressive metal style and thought-provoking lyrics.
LANCE KING says of the song’s video and message: “It’s an animated visual upload, representing the idea that people often do the opposite of what they truly want because of their fear of others’ reactions, which is a learned coping mechanism that many don’t realize they have. It generally manifests from very judgmental elders growing up, programming a person’s desire for others constant approval. Wearing this mask. does not allow a person to be authentic, even to themselves. It puts them on a repetitious cycle that will sabotage their dreams and relationships and ultimately their joys in life, resulting many times in depression and a fatalistic perception of the world. The single most powerful thing you can do is unlearn the limiting beliefs you have accepted as truths in your youth. This frees you from the chains that bind, the chains of the subconscious mind.”
ReProgram delivers stadium-worthy metal grooves topped with King’s epic vocal chops and heady content. ReProgram is available via these digital retailers: Spotify | Amazon | iTunes
