BTW, the song's lyrics use Paul's Old Man/New Man imagery from the Bible to describe our inner struggle with original sin. I believe the man in the video is supposed to be Paul, agonising and writing about the struggle between old and new man.
I haven't checked our group forum in a while.
Great song and video. Thanks for the insight about Paul. I was wondering who that guy was. The "old man" is a common motif in metal so I don't think I would have made that connection.
FYI, Ulterium Records has officially released Wages of Sin to YouTube. There are quite a few fans who have 2 or 3 of the albums, but are unaware of this song, since it only appears on some Mirror of Souls special editions. Enjoy!
Also note: discussions are underway for US touring. I am part of deciding the routing, so if anyone is dying to have them come to your state *and* if you have connections to venues/promoters there, let me know!
I posted this out in Popular Media, before I realized we had a metal forum. This is the appropriate place for it
Echoterra is a symphonic metal band out of St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN. They release their second album Land Of The Midnight Sun on Oct 17. These guys (and gal) are good friends of mine and I helped on the video shoot. Check it out!
