Battlelore - Drop New Song & Video

Ahead of tomorrow's official release of The Return Of The Shadow album, Battlelore premiere the last advance single/video "Elvenking". The video clip was directed and edited by Markku Kirves.

Video director Markku Kirves says: "It is very rare to get an opportunity to write this kind of epic video, so I didn’t hesitate to say yes when Jyri messaged me if I would be interested in making it. Back in the day, Battlelore's "Storm Of The Blades" was one of the first videos I directed, so it was nice to unite again with the band."

The band adds: "We knew Markkus's talent as a video director and his enthusiasm, and when we asked him to shoot the video for us, it was so overwhelming and a pure pleasure to work with such a professional he is. The "Elvenking" video enters to Tolkien's Middle-earth from multiple angles, combining noticeable characters and scenes from Tolkien's written poetry."

Its OK, nice to hear the band playing again at least, I like the guitar parts and the video was nice. Rather slow, boring song though overall. Sounds like a great filler track, not a first single.

I'm so happy that they're back! I love their music and the song is - although slow - really beautiful and I'm excited to hear the rest of the album!

Doom ballad, balances slow melodies, calm vocal duet, best song from them for ages.
