Arsenic Addiction: Star-crossed lovers, twin flames, but in their most tumultuous form…….

Arsenic Addiction – Moon & Sun

We could probably not be addicted to arsenic for long time because that use would kill us. A band name as Arsenic Addition is a vivid a good name we definitely could survive.

Utah’s Arsenic Addiction has a new music video Moon & Sun to unveil, which comes from their 2019 album XIX. As their third album, it shows a grown-up version of the band that has moved away from the theatrical Victorian theme they first embraced as a group. It is the longest they have spent writing and recording as they decided to focus on quality rather than just getting something out. This precision and attention to detail carries forward in the cinematic video for Moon & Sun.

According to the band, this single has been their biggest challenge to date as they set out to tell a tale that some of us know all too well. The band explains further:

«Star-crossed lovers, twin flames, but in their most tumultuous form. Everything was shot in the studio, which is something we’ve never done before. We had to create everything ourselves from the sets to the props, lighting, make-up, costumes, and supporting creations from some talented artists we admire. All of our videos have been ‘DIY’, but this time we didn’t have the beauty and awe of nature to rely on to help tell the story. An ancient archetype occurring in mythos throughout eternity, across the earth, from the stars above to the underworld below.  This is merely our story of Moon & Sun».

5 years of hard work, late nights, band lineup changes, and dedication have cumulated into XIX and the listener should feel as though they are experiencing a journey of another’s love, sadness, anger, and pain. It’s laid out to feel as though you have walked in on the solitary practice of a witch, her life, her experiences, her secrets, her black rites. The track Fire,

Moon & Sun was filmed and directed by Brian Medeiros, and features costume pieces by Tuahadedana Germany, Hysteria Machine UK and Aconite Creations UK.

Dark, gothic and heavily melodic, Arsenic Addiction is recommended for fans of Cradle Of Filth, Behemoth and In This Moment.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6856 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
