German Progressive Metallers Sweeping Death released a second video from their EP Tristesse which was released on 9 September 2021. Watch The World As Will here:
Lead vocalist Elias Witzigmann comments:
“It is with great pleasure that we present to you the new video for ‘The World As Will‘, the opener of our new EP ‘Tristesse‘. This video was made during the lockdown. Friends of ours were looking for a topic for their final thesis in interactive media and asked us if we would like to do a project together.
So each of us individually went to Augsburg University of Applied Sciences in the spring of 2021 to get filmed. It was a strange feeling not to be able to do such a project together. In the end, however, this circumstance only underlines the theme of the song: ‘The World As Will‘ tells of the beginning of a journey, out of the dark, first level to a more enlightened, almost divine sphere. A transformation process within, which everyone can only begin and end within themselves.
We have deliberately chosen a black and white video to visualize the darkness and also uncompromisingness of the first level. So in the course of the video, depending on the part, gloomy passages also alternate with sublime nature scenes. We are damn excited how you like it and invite you to start your own journey with ‘The World As Will‘.”
