Dreamshade – Official Music Video @ TV WAR / MAD TV
Dear friends, supporters and cooperators,
It is with immense joy and boundless honor we present to you the first video for our sophomore album, “Polysyllabic“. Having released our first Official Lyric (Odd-Y-Sea) and Official Audio (Last Fallen Angel), this time we chose “Dreamshade“, which will be aired, for the very first time, during television Heavy Metal show TV WAR on MAD TV, on Sunday, April 30 at midnight.
We consider this particular video one of the most complete projects ever made in Greece; it’s a actually a short film, featuring a production equal – to say the least – to respective productions abroad. This video is the very artistic vision of director Maria Chatzigianni. Maria and her amazing team deeply astonished us when they first laid down their thoughts about “dressing up” our song. The final outcome is a true triumphant result for them.
The starring of our story is one of the greatest Greek actors ever. Dimitris Alexandris is a huge star, a theatre / cinema / television colossal actor and maybe the best of his generation. The hero of “Dreamshade” honored us with his unique presence and no words, not even thanks are enough to describe such a bliss. It is his very first appearance on a video during his illustrious career and the fact that he said yes to a Heavy Metal band means a lot. Especially since he’s also well-known for his careful and selective moves concerning such matters.
Yet, a video like that is most of all and above all a result of team work. In that manner, we would like to express our gratitude to all the actors that participated, Athanasios Lazarou on cello, the magical choir of Voice Box, the entire production team and all technical personnel, who made these two days of shooting, which lasted more than a whole week – trust us on that one – and made the dream come true.
Thank you so much! Shine On!
