Sawthis soon returns with a hybrid metal onslaught entitled "Babhell," which is due out March 24th, 2017 via Denmark-based label Might Music. Today the band premieres a brand new 360-degree music video for album track "Start A New Game," which can be viewed below.
The video was directed by UnderRoom Studios and features lead vocalist Alessandro Falà and his "puppet" counterpart trying to rise above societal confusions and the lies of the media. The band chose to film in 360-degree to create the illusion of a "virtual square," allowing the viewer to control their own vantage point.
Bassist Gaetano Ettorre states, "'For the 'Start A New Game' music video, we created a modern square full of confusion and solitude. This square seems crowded by virtual people projected on the protagonist through the monitors, but at the end it's just a bare and sad room. The protagonist can't stop watching the monitors as he is essentially fed by that media, so he eventually becomes a puppet under virtual oppression."
Sawthis regards "Babhell" as the group's best work to date. Ettorre states, "'Babhell,' in general, touches upon themes of poor human communication and its negative result. Everyone is talking, and no one is listening or looking at what's happening right in front of them. Ultimately, in a world where everyone is talking and no one is listening, honest dialogue becomes impossible and thoughts become just noise like a Babel, a hellish Babel, hence the name Babhell. If I had to choose a term to describe the sound of the record, it would be 'multi-emotional chaos.' Our music is a balance of rage and happiness, resignation and reaction, love and hate-Babhell represents a perfect mix of everything." More...
