Progressive metal six-piece HIEROGLYPH are pleased to reveal their new video for single ‘Starlight (The High Priestess)’, taken from their debut album Ouroboros, released on the 18th November 2016.
The single has been championed by Kerrang Radio’s Alex Baker and BBC Radio Yorkshire on their BBC Introducing show and the video premiered with TERRORIZER magazine earlier this week.
For fans of Lacuna Coil and vildhjarta Ouroboros is an incredible declaration of the bands ability to write creative and technical music. The release is a concept album, based around the story of a rise to consciousness and higher thinking that is encoded into the first 11 Tarot cards, the Major Arcana. Each song corresponds with a different card and takes you on a journey, beginning as The Fool and finishing as the Magnus or Magician.
Speaking about the track, vocalist Valentina Reptile said: “Starlight is the second card of the Major Arcana: The High Priestess, so the inspiration from the lyrics come from the same tarot card. The High Priestess is a very positive card which represents guardian of the unconscious. She sits in front of the thin veil of unawareness which is all that separates us from our inner landscape. She contains within herself the secrets of these realms and offers us the silent invitation to discover the world within. The High Priestess poses a challenge to you to go deeper – to look beyond the obvious, surface situation to what is hidden and obscure. She also asks you to recall the vastness of your potential and to remember the unlimited possibilities you hold within yourself.”
Ouroboros is self-released on the 18th November 2016.
