New Noise Magazine is hosting a premiere of White Heat, the new video from Danish epic/doom metal quintet RISING. The track comes from the band’s fourth LP ‘Sword And Scythe’, which was released in October through Indisciplinarian.
In the theme of the album, RISING presents a new video for White Heat, for which lead singer and lyricist Morten Grønnegaard, who created the video, states, “White Heat tells the story of a distant future where the fossil fuels that once forged our industrial society, are nothing but an ancient memory. Humanity struggles to find a new power source that can generate the white heat demanded to reindustrialize the world. A fast, aggressive yet melodic song with odd time signatures describing man’s striving towards both survival and dominance, and all it implies, good and bad. The video is a metaphorical illustration of this ambition and its palpable consequences that are our world today. But along the intent of the album’s concept of examining man’s nature, it is also a visual question to ourselves: is the current course the only path we can tread, or are we capable of self-critique to the point of controlling our instincts and convey a sustainable existence?”
