Charlie Griffiths (Haken) has shared a lyric video for his new song “Arctic Cemetery.” The track, which features Tommy Rogers (Between The Buried And Me) and Darby Todd, will appear on Griffiths‘ new solo album “Tiktaalika,” which is set to be released June 17.
“‘Arctic Cemetery‘ is palaeontology meets progressive metal. A fossil-dig, through a melodic tech-metal landscape. I am incredibly lucky to have BTBAM’s Tommy Rogers on vocals and Darby Todd (Martin Barre, Devin Townsend) on drums. They are both consummate pros and elevated the song far beyond my expectations.
This was one of the first songs that came to life for the album and once I had the line ‘Dead and buried, laying in an Arctic Cemetery’ the idea blossomed. The song reflects upon the notion that modern humans can identify locations of graveyards, hundreds of millions of years old and find remnants of our ancestors and ask, what can this extinct creature teach us? I find that notion incredibly awe inspiring and humbling.”
