TERAMAZE – “HER HALO” VIDEO SINGLE2nd November 2015
This is the title track from Teramaze’s new album continues to delve deeper into the dark travelling show concept of the record and particularly psyche of the Trapeze artist and her conflicting emotions that runs throughout the centre of this stunning album and offers up a prequel to the tragic Out of Subconscious video.
Discussing the concept guitarist/songwriter Dean Wells elaborates; “Her Halo is the third track in the concept where the story goes into more detail about the Trapeze artist herself and how she sees her world. On the stage she is the star, the masterpiece and elegance radiates off of her, but behind the closed curtain she is broken, self-destructive and ready to fall apart. She represents a deep depression and showing only the side she wants everyone to see, her masquerade. As the song progresses the facade she puts on starts to decay and the people around her see that she is just like everyone else.”
Beautifully shot, the video reflects the depth, sensitivity and cinematic story telling of a band hitting their peak and it offers a poignant insight into the events that unravelled in Out of Subconscious which you can see here
In Her Halo Teramaze have created an incredibly layered and textual story of real depth, drama and intensity about events that unfold within a travelling show; the facades, the elation, the extravagant performances and the conflict that lies within everyone involved.
An Ordinary Dream (Enla Momento) sets the scene for all that is about to come, Love, Madness, Loss, and Rage as it evolves into To Love, A Tyrant which engulfs you in a love triangle a clown and a ringmaster and the Trapeze Artist they desire. From here the dark side of the Trapeze artists is shown on Her Halo and the tension builds into Out Of Subconscious which bridges the strong desire to maddening obsession, when the clown character finally becomes overwhelmed by his lust for her.
For The Innocent takes take you through the life of the Trapeze Artist, a flash of her past up until now, a glimpse of her beauty that once was, and her passion that once existed and into Trapeze, her moment, her performance that she brilliantly executes until the fatal wrong move. In Broken, lost loved ones are remembered and in the finale, Delusions Of Grandeur, the clown finally slips into madness, fuelled by rage. With his final act, he does what would be unthinkable…
Melbourne, Australia’s Progressive Metal ensemble, Teramaze, signs to Music Theories Recordings which is a part of the Mascot Label Group. The band’s first release for the label, ‘Her Halo’, will hit stores on November 6, 2015.
