CIRCLE OF SIGHS - Shares Animated Short Film For "Spectral Arms"

Los Angeles (USA) based occult-themed synth-doom collective Circle Of Sighs, who will return with their sophomore album, titled Narci, on the 4th of June via Metal Assault Records, shared an animated short film for the track "Spectral Arms". Carving out their very own niche within the genre, adopting a style that very few acts even attempt to approach, the band's upcoming release features eight epic yet individual chapters that will take you on a journey to previously unimagined spheres. Today the anonymous collective unleashed a music video for the new single "Spectral Arms" and you can watch it in the player below.

Created in the style of an impressive and animated short film by Costin Chioreanu, who is well known for his work for bands like Opeth, Voivod, Napalm Death,... "Spectral Arms" was inspired by Ernest Becker's book, The Denial of Death.

The Spokesperson of the band states: "Specifically, it is about mortality sentience and what Becker referred to as our "immortality projects." In other words, the things we self-aware humans do to ensure we're remembered after we are gone. Some of these things are good. For example, most artworks - even this song frankly - are really just immortality projects. Some of these things are quite bad: wars, mass shootings, fascism. But at the centre of them all is ego and ego function happens to be the overarching concept of our forthcoming album, Narci." Link
