Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

“Edge Of A Dream”, the new video from Greek melodic metallers FIREWIND, can be seen below. According to the band, the song — which features a guest appearances by Finnish cello superstars APOCALYPTICA — “brings the classy feel of metal ballads back into a modern spotlight.”

Comments FIREWIND guitarist Gus G.: “We shot the video earlier this year in Greece. You can see the beautiful landscapes we caught on film and I assure you that Petros [Christo, FIREWIND bassist] and Jo [Nunez, drums] didn’t hold it against us for not appearing in the clip! Actually, the clip was directed by our band member Bob Katsionis [keyboards, guitar], who is also an acclaimed video director. He directed the clip for ‘Head Up High’ back in 2008 among others. I think he has done an excellent job once again! Enjoy!”

Inhibition is a bold conjunction of quality Post-modern Black Metal influences: the band describes itself as a mix between Burzum, Neurosis and Code. At the same time, Inhibition is the first part of a trilogy that attach great importance to atmosphere as well as heavy, oppressive and neurasthenic sounds.

The project is led by A.K. – a musician known from a vast number of cognoscible underground metal acts such as Vorkreist, Merrimack, Neo Inferno 262, Malhkebre, Diapsiquir, etc. He is responsible for guitars, keyboards, programming, samples and vocals.
