The new video and first single from doom metal band WOE UNTO ME's forthcoming album.
"Deep Beneath The Burden" now available for streaming/download at all digital platforms.

“The idea for the lyrics in the song ‘Deep Beneath The Burden’ is inspired by Erich Fromm's investigations in ‘The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness,” explains singer Igor Kovalyov. “As you will learn the whole concept of the album is strongly associated with the idea of transformation. This song is not an exception. Here we are talking about doubt or hesitation and how this disturbing feeling morphs into obsession and action. The whole video clip is divided into four scenes. The first one is about the state of uncertainty, where the doubt is discovered. The idea is mostly inspired by the first lines of Dante's journey to hell from his outstanding ‘Divine Comedy.’ The next two scenes are about an acceptance of doubt and its transformation into an idea of destruction. The last one is a tragedy of a human obsession. The main character brings his doubt into real life and transforms the idea into action.”

“Musically the new record is the continuation of our movement into more progressive realms of doom metal. This is not a typical funeral doom or death-doom, but it contains the elements of all kinds of doom metal sub-genres,” states Artyom. “I think this album is going to be the most atmospheric, eclectic and mature in our discography so far. It’s quite complex musically and lyrically but at the same time I think it will be easier in terms of perception and more interesting even for the listeners that are not the fans of a classical doom metal. In terms of lyrics on this album we decided to move away from the typical plots for this kind of music and refused to just describe depressive or destructive conditions of a human being. We focused on the investigation of the nature of these feelings and tried to analyze them from the philosophical point of view.”
