Scardust Posts New Music Video "Gone" Online

Israeli progressive / symphonic metal band Scardust has unveiled "Gone," the epic conclusion to their latest two-part music video saga. The new clip – which completes a narrative that began in the video for its companion track, "Stranger" – can be viewed below. "Gone" and "Stranger" can also be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and other digital platforms starting today.

Scardust's new record, Strangers – set to be released on October 30 by M-Theory Audio – is an intriguing concept album built of complementary song pairs working from the outside in. The first taste of the band's unique vision for their second full-length release was unveiled in September, through the music videos for "Tantibus II" and "Addicted."

Says vocalist Noa Gruman, "When someone close to your heart is leaving you and you’re breaking down and feeling that you’re left to face the world on your own, the shared memories and moments that you had become 'Stranger.' Being neglected is a fragile and exposed feeling, so in this one song we chose to lose the choir and strings and strip things down to the core musicians. In the video, they are playing the song, but never together, in an obscure, unrealistic location. They are surrounded by concrete pillars and the scene is continuously spinning, leaving the viewer feeling dizzy and uncomfortable. Lyrics pop out here and there to highlight specific parts, and there are also hints of water by the musicians' feet and paint cans lying on the ground. One may wonder why, and it will all be revealed in the other side of the story, told from the side of the neglector."

Mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Arch Enemy), "Strangers" was written and composed jointly by singer Noa Gruman and composer Orr Didi, who also collaborated with Gruman on Scardust's full-length debut, Sands Of Time, and their 2015 EP Shadow. The album features guest appearances from German folk musician Patty Gurdy, as well as vocals by the Hellscore choir and England’s prestigious Westbrook Hay Prep School Chamber Choir.
