Gothic doom metal symbiosis Draconian have just unveiled a new official video for their hauntingly beautiful hymn “The Sethian”, cut from their latest chart-breaking album, Under A Godless Veil (2020).
Along with a bewitching official video that captures the melancholic identity of the song and transfers it to screen, the song is a gate into another mesmerizing sonic dimension.
Vocalist and lyricist Anders Jacobsson comments: “The writing of ‘The Sethian’ started with Johan being inspired by a Nordic folksong. As the song transpired it mutated into a range of different variables and quite different for being a Draconian song. From bombastic and brutal, from doomy sadness to gothic soundscapes. The instrumentation and the vocal arrangements are poignant and commanding, something that marks ‘The Sethian’ as one – if not the most well-received song of our new album.”
