WITCHERY Releases New Lyric Video For “Storm of the Unborn”
“The day of the “Nightside” album release is upon us, and along with it we have a lyrical video chosen to show the diversity of the album. “Storm of the Unborn” is a slower, more atmospheric track compared to the two previously released videos from the album. It also comes with more atmosphere-setting sound fx, something I grew to love from listening to other great concept albums (perhaps best exemplified by Queensryche’s “Operation: Mindcrime”). So, get a glass of your favorite beverage, find some shade from the current sun-on-steroids (at least here in northern Europe at the moment!) and enjoy this our first endeavor of creating a concept album of our own,” states WITCHERY mastermind and guitarist Jensen.
