Atmospheric black metal band Sojourner present the official music video for the song “The Deluge“, taken from its upcoming third full-length album “Premonitions“, scheduled for release on May 5th, 2020 via Napalm Records.
Emilio Crespo states: ““The Deluge” represents the personal journeys that the members of Sojourner have endured for the past year. A deluge / flood is a devastating event that leaves a trail of destruction in its wake and this is encapsulated in the melancholic lyrics, hard rhythm and blistering leads of the track. We felt that “The Deluge” sets a darker tone and pace for the new album and therefore it was our first choice for the leading single of the new album, “Premonitions”. Due to the fact we are an international band spanning the globe, we decided to emphasize this in our first video by not pursuing one particular style, but telling the story of all the members coming together from their separate paths while mixing in stylized band shots which were all expertly shot and edited by the talented Oliver König“.
Mike Lamb adds: “Scotland has some of the most breathtaking landscapes and is a place we all hold close to our hearts for various reasons. That paired with the fact it was the right fit for “The Deluge” and Sojourner thematically, it was an easy decision to have the Scottish Highlands as the setting of the video“.
