Progressive metal innovators Benthos have revealed another new music video and single, this time for the song “Talk To Me, Dragonfly!“. The new video (directed by Stefano Galli) is a fast-paced jazz-infused staccato of progressive metal that brings the listener on a confrontation with one’s negativity resulting in awareness, acceptance, and improvement towards positivity. Watch it right now here:
“Talk To Me, Dragonfly!” is the third single from the band’s debut full-length album II which was released this past Friday, April 23 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Matteo Magni (Anewrage, Deep As Ocean) at Magnitude Recordings.
“Talk To Me, Dragonfly! Is about confrontation with one’s negativity, and reaching a balance through becoming aware, accepting, and improving it” says guitarist Gabriele Papagni. “The video contains two distinctly different elements: the first consists of macro footage with insects and our singer interacting with his dark inner-self. The video begins in black and white, progressing towards a climax with scenes in colour.” Drummer Alessandro Tagliani adds “We chose this song as a single because it is the heaviest and most eccentric song on the album. Shooting this video was particularly challenging because the electric generator broke, and the outdoor shots were full of mosquitos and spider webs!”
