Belgium’s gothic/industrial metal formation October Changes releases a new single titled “Medusa”. Watch the lyric video below.
October Change’s music can be described as an eclectic blend of symphonic, industrial and gothic metal, fused together with some electronic influences. The female vocalist delivers vocals that go from clean, more classic inspired to more powerful dark vocals. The result is a unique and variable sound that has the ability to reach beyond metal-music-lovers. This song is Part II of a two part series (Part I – The Dark Paradise).
The story of the song is about a siren and a young man that fall in love. But their love was never meant to be. The father of the siren and king of the sea, brutally pulls his daughter back into the sea, because she showed herself to a human being. Afraid of the repercussions this might have on all aquatic life, he then condemns her to a life in solitude as a human on a secret hidden island. Cursed to live in solitude forever. Those who dare to enter the island will inevitably turn to stone. So the secret location of the island will never be unveiled.
When the sun touches the ocean, the little siren weeps and it is said that if you listen very carefully, you can hear her melancholic voice singing a sad song that travels over the waters of the sea…
