Helestios Drop New Video/Single ‘Downgraded World’

Helestios Drop New Video/Single ‘Downgraded World’

 

From Henrijs: “We recently released a pandemic video for ‘Downgraded World’, a song taken from our debut album ‘Your Pain Tastes Good’. It’s one of the main songs and even with restrictions limiting how we can actually do the video for this song – we are pretty pleased with the result.


It was one of the riffs that actually started the idea of building the whole album and so we felt that this had to be honoured! The lyrical side became to be in dark winter months while I was reading material of Ebla and Ugarit mythology archives mentioning ancient pre biblical events and characters that are either totally excluded from biblical narrative, or twisted in a totally different way, or in the conservative scientific rule being regarded as fantasies of ancient man. It is still a very interesting subject and of course much is hidden in various places and kept away from ordinary people. And that raised a question about a link between deep past and present days. Mythologies speak of stories that can be verified in reality and backed up by certain physical remaining facts. So I think we should listen a bit more into those stories and try to learn from them especially if they speak of global events that destroyed previous civilizations of which we know so little! And what better way than talking about it through music!”
