Winterus Posts "Harmonious" Video

Michigan black metal act Winterus has partnered up with MetalInjection.net to debut the music video for “Harmonious,” the first single from Winterus’s forthcoming album, "In Carbon Mysticism." The video can be viewed below.

“The song to all of us represents an extremely challenging time,” said vocalist, Christopher Erich Neu. “I think every band should make a song or two that the listener can relate to, or just cheese out. A big thing with this video that we all agreed on was that we love watching videos where you just watch the band jam. So we kind of wanted to do that with this song, since it's much more naturally emotional compared to the rest of the songs on the album.”

"In Carbon Mysticism," Winterus’s Lifeforce Records debut, will hit stores on April 26th, 2011.
