"Vid Rosornas Grav", the new video from Swedish folk power metal band Falconer can now be watched over at this location (courtesy of Metal-Hammer.de)
Comments Falconer guitarist Stefan Weinerhall: "The video for "Vid Rosornas Grav" is re-enacting a story that took place not far from where we live. It gives you a vision of what position you would have 150 years ago if you were just a common man or serf. It surely doesn't look like a metal video in the beginning but then again, when have Falconer ever been about being as metal as possible."
The clip was produced and directed by the people of 1897.se who also did the "Carnival of Disgust" video.
"Vid Rosornas Grav" comes off the band's latest album, entitled Armod, which was released on June 3th in Europe through Metal Blade Records. More album details were previously reported over here.

Jim Matheos, guitarist and only remaining founding member of Fates Warning, and John Arch, the original vocalist of the band, are pleased to announce Sympathetic Resonance as the title of their debut album, which will be released September 13th in North America.
The band - accompanied by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) on bass, Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, ex-Iced Earth) on drums, and Frank Aresti (ex-Fates Warning) on additional lead guitar - began tracking the drums on January 12 and continued to record through mid February with Jim Matheos producing.
Jim Matheos offered his insight on the writing and recording process of Sympathetic Resonance; "I think John and I work really well together. There's a lot of mutual respect and trust in what we do. But, we're also both very critical of ourselves, and each other. This can make for a long and, sometimes, tedious process. But ultimately it's one I enjoy because I think it brings out the best in both of us."
