SOUL ENEMA: veröffentlichen ein Animationsvideo zum Song "Eternal Child" feat. AYREONs Arjen Lucassen!
Die israelische Prog Band SOUL ENEMA veröffentlicht ein neues Animationsvideo zum Song "Eternal Child", das vom brandneuen Album "Of Clans and Clones and Clownes" stammt. Das Video zeigt Bilder von der weltberühmten Animation Artist Kseniya Simonova und der Song beinhaltet einen Gastauftritt des niederländischen Progressive Rock Masterminds Arjen Lucassen an der Gitarre.
Songwriter und Keyboarder Constantin Glantz kommentiert: ""Eternal Child" was written at the last stage of the album recordings, almost like a flash of lightning coming out of nowhere. It literally took about 40 minutes to come up with the music and the basic lyrics, something that never happened so fast for me before.
It’s almost like the song had written itself and all I had to do was document it quickly before it faded away. And this one really felt like it could be a great closing piece on the record, sort of a final missing part of the puzzle. Speaking of lyrics, I believe it captures, in particular, that slightly nostalgic feeling about everything that a grown person is bound to lose when childhood is over, and the rediscovery of the will to live and learn, to be flexible and curious about things again and again, to have those dreams and do whatever it takes to fulfil them.
I'd like to note that Noa [Gruman] has made a hell of a journey in vocal dynamics and range here — from very intimate verses to soaring, high range choruses. And it's obviously a great honor to feature Arjen Lucassen with a truly mesmerizing guitar solo contribution. When I was much younger, exploring these influential Ayreon records in the late ‘90s, I could only dream about such a collaboration becoming reality one day. Last but not least, special thanks to Kseniya Simonova — the world’s leading sand animation artist and inventor of original plastic animation techniques featured here. I'm a long time admirer of her art, it's very unique. She totally loved the track, and her masterful job is a great visual counterpart to the things we were trying to express musically and lyrically."
