The debut album from Germany’s progressive death metallers Virocracy was released about a month ago and now they have published a video for Walking Ghost, an eight minute long story captured by VideoHeadz.de and directed by Stefan Nacke.
Multiple forms of creativity converge in Virocracy from Stuttgart. Not only committed to music, Virocracy tells a tale of dominion, disease, doubt, hope, and the rejection of this world in the forms of music, poetry, pictures, and personal involvement.The line-up: Alejandro Serrano Martinez (Drums), Anika Ov Moseberg (Vocals), Alexander Jelinek (Guitar), Florian Betz (Bass), Jan Heidelberger (Guitar). The track Incarnation,
Virocracy, founded in mid-2018, is a progressive death and thrash metal experience. Each song is handmade and does not resort to redundancy or gap filling. The band is dominated by an aggression that constantly develops through different tempos and rhythms within the songs, steadily taking on new forms like a virus. The album tells the story of Rane, who is sent on a dark journey due to a misfortune and who the listener follows through different worlds and states of mind. The music stirs and drives the listener with its dark atmosphere adorned with demonic growls, crystal clear and hard riffs, buzzing fills, and titanic bass.
