Slovak symphonic metal band Symfobia releases a music video for “Flowing Down” from their new album “Smog Of Tomorrow”. Watch the emotional video set in World War I below.
The song is the saddest piece off Symfobia’s new album “Smog Of Tomorrow” which dropped in March. The video tells a sorrowful story of a young couple in love and their struggle during the hard times of World War I. Both vocalists of the band portrayed important characters in the video; you can see Erika Strečková in the role of the miller’s tormented wife and Simona Janovičová in the role of Fate. Also present in the video is a Greek mythology character Charon, the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that represent the line between the world of the living and the dead. He’s been portrayed by band’s bass player Peter Bugár.
“Flowing Down is the saddest song from our new album but at the same time, it’s very powerful. When I saw the finished video for the first time, my tears were falling almost the entire time. A lot of our fans have confessed that they listen to the song during relationship crisis, and I think I get them,” says Erika.
Simona, who re-recorded the song with her vocals especially for the video, adds: “At first glance, it may seem that the song “Flowing Down” doesn’t belong on the album with its message and structure, but we believe that love is the answer to many problems the world’s facing at the moment. That’s why we decided to shoot a video for this song.”
