Avatar Premiere “New Land” Music Video

Avatar have premiered a new video for their song “New Land.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which is available now. The clip features the band heading to the newly discovered planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system.

Jonas “Kungen” Jarlsby said the following:

“The ‘new land’ mission will focus primarily on finding life and sustainable living conditions. Secondly we will look for harvestable resources such as various types of metal, lead, copper, zinc, thrash, death… that sort of thing. How do I turn this off? I’m thirsty! Where is my mead? And where are your pants? Wait, is this thing still recording?! The mission will be aired LIVE on Avatar Country state television, KTV (Kungliga Television). For people abroad, unable to watch the event as it is happening, a summary can be seen above on AvatarVEVO today. Glory to Avatar Country! Glory to our King!”

Avatar Premiere “Night Never Ending” Music Video

Avatar have premiered a new video for their song “Night Never Ending.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which is available now.

Johannes Eckerström told Alternative Press the following:

“It’s is a special song, being probably the most upbeat and, dare I say, happy piece we’ve ever released. But under the surface of the fragile message of hope and fighting spirit it is little more than a prelude to a tragedy, and that is what we set out to capture when we decided to make a video for it.”

“It is very close to my heart for being the one video where there is no ‘rocking out’ going on, and we get to capture a side of Avatar that is just as integral as the good, headbanging times we love sharing with our supporters all around the world. There are few things in this world as beautiful and fascinating as contrasts and this is what all of Feathers & Flesh is all about. Hope and tragedy.”

Avatar Premiere “The Eagle Has Landed” Music Video

Avatar have premiered a new video for their song “The Eagle Has Landed.” This song is from the band’s new concept album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which will be released on May 13.

Johannes Eckerström said the following:

“During the past few months I’ve ended up saying “this is our most ambitious work to date” quite a bit, but this one takes the cake. While still keeping it in the family we’ve created yet a new universe for everyone to get immersed in.

A fable is a metaphor to explore the human condition and we’ve taken it one step further, zooming in on one song and what it has to say in and out of itself beyond the frames of the concept of ‘Feathers & Flesh.’”

This is the story of five conmen traveling around the land, selling their snake oil to the easily persuaded people of the soil. Often when we want karma to bite someone’s ass the most, they always seem to get away.

It was fun to play the bad guy for once. I think the visuals and our treatment of the classic one take-concept speaks for itself. This is one of those you’ll want to watch over and over again. I know I’m already doing just that. Enjoy!”

Avatar Premiere New Song “Tooth, Beak & Claw”

Avatar have premiered a new song titled “Tooth, Beak & Claw,” via Loudwire. This song is from the band’s new concept album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which will be released on May 13.

Johannes Eckerström said the following:

“‘Tooth, Beak & Claw‘ is epic, massive death metal designed to make you want to dance. It’s the Beach Boys reporting in from Valhalla. It’s a gang of zombie surfers riding the waves of Hades.”

Avatar Premiere New Song “The Eagle Has Landed”

Avatar have premiered a new song titled “The Eagle Has Landed,” via Revolver. This song is from the band’s new concept album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which will be released on May 13.

Johannes Eckerström said the following:

“You’ve heard Owl’s hunting hymn. Now it’s time for Eagle’s mission statement. Just as he crashes into the world of his adversary, we will come crashing into your lives, screaming at the top of our lungs.

We’re still very early in the story and without giving away too much, I can say that things are about to change rapidly.

The riff is a towel, the melody is water and y’all are about to get boarded. Have fun!”

Avatar Premiere New Songs “Regret” & “House Of Eternal Hunt”

Avatar have premiered two new songs titled “Regret” & “House Of Eternal Hunt,” via Metal Injection. These songs are from the band’s new concept album, “Feathers & Flesh,” which will be released on May 13.

Johannes Eckström said the following:

“What you have is the beginning of the story and all the light and darkness of things to come! We meet our protagonist, Owl as she lies dying, looking back on the night that would be her last. Regret is about, well regret! Staring into the cold eyes of Death, she wishes to change everything, to go back, to live again.

This leads us to House of Eternal Hunt. It is how things used to be; how they were supposed to be. That is how the tale starts, with a predator ruling the sky on the night that would turn out to be her last!

With this concept and these tracks, we want to give you the past, present and, more than anything else, the future of metal as we see it. It is the beginning of an epic journey and we’re glad to have you along for the trip.”
