Violence Of The Skies is the new album from uprising metal band Primitai and The Uprising is the second single from that album. The new album would be released March 26th.
Primitai explained the concept behind the song: «The Uprising is about hitting back against those that oppress you and underestimate you. The marching pace of the verses build up to the uplifting chorus, and then all hell breaks loose with frantic guitar soloing as “The Uprising” reaches its critical mass».
«The music video was shot at Blondies bar in Clapton, our favorite rock bar in London and one of the few places where we were able to have (socially distanced) band drinks and fun in 2020 – thanks to the crew for having us. Look out for the special appearance of our longtime Spanish guitarist Sergio Giron! After the musical journey and progressive flavor of our first single Valley Of Darkness, with The Uprising we give a nod to heavy metal’s rock n’ roll roots».
Due to atmospheric synths there are a sci-fi feel throughout the album and the band adds prog metal elements than ever before. The lyrics is a story about escaping the end of the world, seeking new victories and facing unknown dangers.
