Vintersea Premiere “Crack Of Light” Video

Vintersea have premiered a new video for their song “Crack Of Light.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Illuminated.”

Guitarist Riley Nix commented:

“Since the release of ‘Illuminated‘, our fans have been asking us about a music video for the central epic of the album, ‘Crack Of Light‘. We’ve secretly been toiling away on it for nearly a year now, building sets, costumes and prop pieces on a scale we’ve never attempted before. We traveled to every corner of our state to capture unique and appropriate scenery for this song, which is a collective band favorite. We are so excited to share the results, which represent hard work and dedication by not only our band, but also by a ton of our friends and family who put their blood, sweat and tears into this video.”

Bassist Karl Whinnery added:

“While we want every video to be special, the pandemic gave us more time to work on the video for ‘Crack Of Light‘. I had big dreams for ‘Crack Of Light‘ – the song has an oceanic vibe, but everyone knows filming in the ocean is horrible. Still, the song screamed for a boat, so I dug deep in my brain and came back with a pretty crazy idea that I managed to sell to the band – build a boat and then take it to the desert.”

Vintersea Premiere “Befallen” Music Video

Vintersea have premiered a new video for their song “Befallen.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Illuminated.”

Bassist Karl Whinnery had the following to say about the video, which was recorded at the abandoned Satsop Nuclear Power Plant in Elma, WA:

“I wanted the video to represent the bleakness and capture the aggressiveness of ‘Befallen‘ appropriately. When we started discussing concepts, I knew I had the proper location in mind and everyone jumped on board. Barely above freezing and filming six stories off the ground in some spots, it was an epic shoot. We had to shoot with fish-eye lenses to fully capture the gigantic scope of the cooling tower and reactor rooms.”

Guitarist Riley Nix added:

“‘Befallen‘ occupies a particularly dark place in the album’s timeline, and it’s meant to evoke immense dread and opaque darkness through blistering riffs, punishing blast-beats and relentless vocal lines.

However, even in its darkest and most desperate moments, a sliver of hope shines through the song with ethereal vocals and epic chords. As many of our long-time friends and fans know, resolve in the face of overwhelming darkness is a huge theme throughout our music, and we hope the song and video showcase that.”
