Progressive Rock/Metal act Soul Enema premieres a video clip for the track “Aral Sea II – Dustbin of History.” Watch it HERE.
The song features a guest appearance by Yossi Sassi (ex-Orphaned Land, Yossi Sassi Band), who plays rhythm and solo parts on bouzoukitara – a unique custom-made instrument combining Bouzouki and Electric Guitar.
“‘Aral Sea II’ is the second part of the ‘Aral Sea’ trilogy, dedicated to the environmental disaster of the former sea — one of the biggest ecological problems of our time,” comments keyboard player and songwriter Constantin Glantz.
“This video features magnificent time-lapse footage taken by photographer Denis Frantsouzov on his journey through the Aral Sea/Ustyurt Plateau region. We tried to capture the reflection of an irreversible loss, and bid a final farewell to the Aral Sea — once a blooming oasis in the desert, now literally turned to dust as a result of reckless human activity.”
“Aral Sea II” is a part of the band’s new album, titled Of Clans and Clones and Clowns, featuring 70+ minutes of music with special guests including Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Yossi Sassi (ex-Orphaned Land), Sergey Kalugin and Yuri Ruslanov (Orgia Pravednikov). The album was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Symphony X), and is available for purchase on Bandcamp.
