MARIANAS REST - New Single And Video From Upcoming Album Premiered Online

Finland based ambassadors of melancholic and melodic doom/death metal, Marianas Rest, who will release their new album titled Fata Morgana on 12th March via Napalm Records, have now released a stunning new video for the track "South Of Vostok". The song features ethereal backing vocals by Lindsay Schoolcraft (Antiqva, ex-Cradle Of Filth).

After unveiling their first sophisticated offering, "Glow From The Edge", the Finns now set free their next hauntingly melancholic output, "South Of Vostok": Fata Morgana's final epos starts off with Finnish wording that underlines the origin of the six-piece. With feral yet sensitive vocals as well as a harmonizing instrumental performance, Marianas Rest skillfully creates a cohesive symbiosis of sound that allows every note to unfold its captivating power in the most appropriate way. The song's name comes from a place in Antarctica and a Russian research station named Vostok located there - one of the coldest and most hostile places towards life in the whole world, if not the coldest of all.

Jaakko (vocals) comments on the new single: ""South Of Vostok" is the end of a story. A cathartic pondering on the edge of the world where frost turns to fire." Guitarist Nico M. adds: "It is a mix of hope and desperation. A journey through ugliness towards something more beautiful."

Fata Morgana marks the final chapter of a trilogy that began when Marianas Rest released their first full-length, 2016's Horror Vacui, followed by the critically acclaimed full-length Ruins (2019). The series encompasses themes of isolation, eventual mental collapse and emergence from that woeful state, respectively - however, the band invites fans to experience the concept from their own perspectives. Watch out for an interview with Marianas Rest coming soon to Terra Relicta, but now watch the new video in the player below, and if missed it, over HERE you can still watch the previously released video for "Glow From The Edge".
