Alternative/progressive metal band Morphide unveils new single video “Aftermath”. Watch the visualizer below.
Morphide was founded by vocalist Eissa and guitarist Chris in June 2019. The band focuses on the emotionality of the song, delivered through the atmosphere and heavy riffs, making their songs “breathe”. The band takes inspiration from such bands as Tesseract, Karnivool, Spiritbox and Northlane.
“Aftermath” is Morphide’s fifth single, taken from their upcoming debut album, due out later this year. The track continues a persona oriented theme, focusing on the human identity and issues of social interaction in it’s lyrics.
The unfinished version of the song was played on their European tour in November 2019, which was completed and recorded after Morphide got back in the studio in 2020. The mixing and mastering was done by Forrester Savell, famous for his work with such progressive metal bands as Twelve Foot Ninja, Karnivool and Skyharbor.
The pandemic became not only the challenge, but also the main influence for the visualizer. The outdoor shots were taken during the first day after the official end of the lockdown. It was meant to show the life of a completely empty city, with deserted streets and closed shops. The visualizer has a complete do-it-yourself approach, filmed and edited by band members.
