Hranice Abyss release music video "Flawless Oblivion"
Hranice Abyss seeks the union of visceral with aesthetic beauty, from pure catharsis to sublimation. Inspired by these concepts, the band releases the single together with the video clip “Flawless Oblivion”, with an exclusive debut on the Metal Injection website. "We are excited about the debut of the band's next new material," published the website.
"'Flawless Oblivion' revolves around modern life, the loss of will and free thinking. All the struggles we make to lead a normal, routine life, losing ourselves to the will of others. But in the midst of all the setbacks and moments difficult, people can move on, but with that feeling of emptiness inside. This is who we are. This is our story. The music itself has spatial-contemplative parts and also a heavy accelerated rhythm, making a parallel of anesthetized mind and anxiety, catharsis and sublimation, creating the environment for the lyrical approach", explains the band.
Regarding the video's debut, Hranice Abyss says it was a long day of filming and very tiring. "The day before we had to prepare all the configurations and the flags. In addition, we used a drone for some filming, creating a more open atmosphere for the video. The dance gave a special touch, we wanted a sentimental and sensitive feeling to the video, but at the same time, something that could bring the viewer a sense of narrative, without losing its aesthetics".
With several influences, ranging from The Black Dahlia Murder, Cattle Decaptation, Necrophagist, Death, Lamb of God and Slayer, mixing with more modern views of bands like Meshuggah, Slipknot and Decapitated, and contemplating productions from Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree, Hranice Abyss is the new bet of Death Metal / Deathcore and delivers a professional, modern work with reflective lyrics, which bring to philosophical issues of the cultural industry of Adorno and Horkheimer, of nihilism and the liberated life of Nietzsche, of the liquid relations of Bauman and Baudrillard simulations.
"We visited Freudian psychoanalysis and using the Byronesian poetics, to raise questions about where the postmodern man fits, of its complexes and traumas, the resignification of life, of affective relationships. In this media world where everything is a product and mental spaces are getting smaller, we want to face the abyss and contemplate the void that plagues our soul to find our meaning and transform it into art ”, explains the band.
In August 2020, Brazilian guitarist Henrique De Fina and Brazilian vocalist Vic Ferreira joined forces to create Hranice Abyss, a modern and artistic project, which believes that it is possible to produce a lot, with quality and with little resources. The band gains notoriety for being DIY (Do It Yourself), producing, directing and recording all their material, from the videos to the EP. From the beginning, the idea was to do everything and be in control to present a quality and professional project.
"Flawless Oblivion" is the band's second single, which anticipates their first EP of their career, entitled "Aphagy", which will be released in 2021. "Violation Of Human Condition" is the single that marked the band's debut in the music market, with debuts on the SLAM WORLDWIDE channel.
