DROPS OF HEART Launches Music Video for 'Escapist'

DROPS OF HEART band

Russian melodic death metal band DROPS OF HEART have launched the official music video for "Escapist." The track comes off the band's upcoming new album Stargazers.

 

The video was filmed and edited by Alexander Becker, directed by Igor Chaban, and stars Anastasia Petruk. Watch "Escapist" now below:

 


The band comments on "Escapist," which was previously released as a digital single: “'Escapist' is one of the most melancholic songs of the album, besides its high speed and powerful energy. This gloominess, untethered from the typical pacing that accompanies it, allows the song to capture a specific type of despair in unusual clarity. This song is about people who lose touch with reality in the pursuit of their dreams. It’s about some kind of a method of flight from life’s problems, and how sad it would be.

The legacy of 1990s and 2000s metal pioneers is intertwined with modern genre trends, energetic riffs are complemented by cinematic synths, and loyalty to the band’s hallmark sound. The sound of the album is completed by voices of famous modern metal bands - Richard Sjunnesson from UNGUIDED ("Frost Grip") and Bjorn Strid from SOILWORK ("Starlight").

 

Stargazers is a tragic story of the presence of personal afflictions and disasters, affecting us all. Told in 12 epic compositions, the conceptually bleak album leaves room for a glimpse of hope and optimism.

DROPS OF HEART was formed in the Russian city of Ufa during summer of 2008 by young musicians without any significant experience in this field. After a few line-up changes, the band tried to make the first serious recordings and released the debut EP Truth of the Closed Eyes. The band continued to develop their musical skill, their appearances at the scenes in the band’s home town became more frequent. However, frequent line-up changes negatively affected the atmosphere in the team. This had led to the disintegration of the band in 2010. But after several years of dead silence, the team's vocalist, Denis Fakhrislamov, together with a friend and a colleague in other bands, Vadim Nizamov, gave DROP OF HEARTS a new birth. With an updated and improved lineup, DROPS OF HEART began working on new material and in December 2014 they released their first full album New Hope which they promoted on their own.

 

The next big step in band’s life was experiments with the format of single releases: from 2016 to 2017 DROPS OF HEART released a series of maxi-singles "Time and Pulse", "Amanda", "Faceless", "Starlight". Each maxi-single was released in three versions - Russian, English and instrumental, and was accompanied by various bonuses in the form of covers or alternative versions of already published tracks. The first official videos in the history of the band were shot on 2 singles (“Time and Pulse”, “Amanda”), also vocalist of the Swedish band SOILWORK Bjorn Strid took part in the recording of the “Starlight”. During this period, DoH attempted to experiment not only with the format of their new products releases, but also with the sound of releasing material: away from the traditional melodic death metal to a more atmospheric sound, which was achieved by the use of electronics and interweaving with other subgenres of metal, for example black metal ("Faceless").

 

In 2017, the band decided to open a new chapter in their life and started writing for their new album, Stargazers. Due to various circumstances, the most important of which was the departure of one of the band composers, Igor Barshchevsky, the recording of the album was delayed until 2020.
