Today, ambient post-metalcore band Stillnight release their music video for Eidolon.
This star-lit visual accompaniment marks the final teaser before they fully unveil their full-length debut album Dream State on March 25, 2022.
The band is innovating the post-metalcore genre by integrating ambience to build imagery within each song. The music is heavy sonically and lyrically as the band digs into the heavy emotions of melancholy, depression, and sorrow.
“If you’ve ever had someone that you felt like had a huge impact on your life or you felt like you couldn’t
live without, this song plays heavily into that theme. It’s easy to feel uncomfortable, full of anxiety, and like your own head is screaming at you until someone comes along and silences the noise. This song is about feeling at peace in the presence of a particular person, not knowing how that can be possible, and then how it feels when you lose them. The lyrics as a whole can be viewed as a progression from a starting point and then a regression back to the original point, only now with the memory of having had something truly pure.” – Stillnight
