Video premiere: Serpentyne – Away From The World

We’ve once again joined forces with British symphonic folk metal band Serpentyne to bring you a new music video premiere! This time, for the second single “Away From The World” off of their album “Angels of the Night”. Watch the brand new video exclusively on Metal Goddesses now.

Serpentyne was created by Maggiebeth Sand, inspired by celtic, folk, operatic and cinematic music styles. The band’s debut album “The Serpent’s Kiss” (2017) featured mythic & medieval themes, combined with a hard rock metal sound. This fusion won the band its place as finalists in the Metal To The Masses, London contest in 2018. In 2019, Serpentyne signed to Hell Fairy Records for the release of their album “Angels of the Night” on November 21.

The band is fronted by classically trained soprano singer Maggiebeth Sand, and backed by Lee Willmer on guitar, Nigel Middleton on bass, Vaughan Grandin on bagpipes and John Haithwaite on drums. Serpentyne combines a unique mix of symphonic and folk metal styles, with themed songs about historical figures and legends, such as Boudicca, The Valkyries, Viking Blood, Helen Of Troy, Jeanne d’ Arc, Medusa, Aphrodite, Lady Macbeth, and The Dark Queen, amongst many others.

Serpentyne singer Maggiebeth says: “We’d like to send our best wishes to all during this unfortunate time, hoping that everyone stays safe and well. It’s been a difficult time for all, but on a cheerful note, we’d like to thank Metal Goddesses for sharing our new video “Away from the World” (based on our song of the same title), which was luckily filmed a few days before the lockdown, and edited in the past weeks under self-isolation.” She continues: “Away from the World” is about escaping from reality to a dream-like state in which the mind creates a world of its own. Since the lyrics suggest some kind of a self-isolation, whether in a fantasy world or real life, we thought that they seem appropriate during this current situation of worldwide lockdown.”
