Storytelling Videos: Skyharbor – Patience


From Skyharbor’s highly anticipated full length release “Guiding Lights”, out on November 10 on Basick Records. The video is magically created by Jess Cope at Owl House Studios.

 

“Sleep… stay asleep.

My soul yearns for one last look at you
Before I leave you here to be hidden within idyllic peace
It’s the perfect memory and I keep it close to me

Bound with wire
Cut me deep into the seams
Flow the colours of the queen
I live like I’m the only one, the fragile one that fights to survive
Crown the liar
Buried deep beneath the cross
Tainted hearts forever lost

Sweet treasure, let go of all you know
Sweet treasure, you are the one, you are my only true pleasure

Now watch me burn it all down, parasite town
Far down below it’s a fight for survival
So scared as I am of you
I’ll burn it all down, parasite town
I call this survival
So scared as I am of you, parasite town.”

Video of the Week- The Serpent’s Kiss


Ok, this week I have not been able to bring myself to stop listening to the new album from Symphony X album Iconoclast with the exception of giving the excellent new Rhapsody of Fire album From Chaos to Eternity its fair share of listens(I’m on about 5 playthroughs, I lost count on the new SX).  Since I don’t think this SX kick is ending anytime soon I felt it only fitting to present one of their videos as video of the week this week.  So, here you go, off their previous album, Paradise Lost, “The Serpent’s Kiss”.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!  Oh, and if you haven’t checked out the new Symphony X album, you may want to fix that(after you read my review of it of course 😉 ).

The video gives a pretty cool look at the SX version of Adam and Eve and the whole snake and forbidden fruit business.  I definitly dig the art direction they took on this video with the alien looking Adam and Eve.  I just wish that they went with a snake more intimidating than a Boa Constrictor, which is a very friendly and tame breed of snake, a Viper or Cobra would have been cooler.  But I can understand the choice for budget and safety reasons.  The album Paradise Lost is based on the John Milton epic poem of the same name from the 1600’s.
