Epic metal quintet RISING have released a second music video in advance of their upcoming album ‘Sword And Scythe.’
The full album will be released on October 26th via Indisciplinarian.
The video is created as a cooperation between director Kennie Ørsted Jensen and the band, with significant input from RISING’s visual conceptualist, singer Morten Grønnegaard.
Hunger And Exile might be the most “political” song of RISING’s forthcoming concept album Sword And Scythe. It examines the progression and recession of mankind throughout the movements of history. Singer Morten Grønnegård says of the song:
“Hunger And Exile is a song about globalization and migration. A powerful and rich city has polluted its surroundings and exploited all its neighbours’ resources, forcing the humans outside the city to seek exile within its protecting walls. Here the refugees will only be tolerated as servants to the greedy citizens, but time will turn the tables, empires falls due to their own ignorance and greed, and those once masters will become thralls.”
