British rock/metal duo The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara (TCOMAS) premieres the official music video for the third song “Deus Ex Machina”, which can be viewed below – with the whole review of it.
Want to experience the dark sounds of metal/rock divinity – wrapped in the historical content and has a great story to tell? Then this is a song for song that is very complex and interesting, just unique and different from the other metal/rock songs that you heard before. The song starts with the heavy/deep riffs that present’s the story in sound perfectly, since the story is about Oedipus Rex or Oedipus the King an Athenian Greek tragedy by Sophocles, it’s one of the most greatest tragedies in classical literature – this song is ideological endeavor to revisit this greek tragedy – presented from the modern perspective by the band and they presented it in their special/unique way, their view of this story, that is a quite interesting journey while experiencing it. The band added some Persian sounds to it, accompanied by narrative and poetic presentation of this song, as well the vocals by Daphne Ang.
She presented the song in that majestic way – telling the story as it is, dark, vile and chaotic – which makes this song an ultimate theatrical experience, that talks about the man’s perennial struggle between fate and free will, that the listener will experience in the best artistic way. For those who like this kind of musical pretension, this is a true ride in historical manner, that the fans of this duo and new listeners will enjoy, every second of it.
This song is different from the historical songs of many bands that presented historical events in their songs, for example like Sabaton, they present the historical events in that euphoric way, just presenting the story and the historical event in that classical way, but with this duo/band it’s kind of different it’s about the poetic presentation of it, it’s just not storytelling, it’s a poetic performance with the music added to it, also a divine mind-blowing experience- that is not just an ordinary historical story, it’s a true theatrical experience, an one of a kind art presentation in musical form, with the very well adapted images in the video – that follow the story in the right way.
Video edit is just flawless goes along with the whole story, that contains the art and archaeology of the ancient world imagery – this shows that this duo did a fantastic job with the visual part of the video presenting the full historical experience and the full story like it is. The whole package of the deep heavy riffs with the tragic note to it, depressive dark sounds and of course the historical content of the song, excellent video adaption and adapted images in the video presents the full story with the unique/ special experience of divinity. It’s one of a kind experience, through the historical greek tragic story-line that will occupied every listener and viewer the whole time while listening to the song and experiencing it.
Learn and dive in into the sounds of historical events in rock/metal divinity.
