Late last week, Arkaik launched a brand new music video in support of their most recent album “Lucid Dawn”. This was done through the great people over at Decibel Magazine. It was specifically done for the final track on the album “The Temple Aflame”. You can check out the video itself along with the official statement just below:
Decibel Magazine unveils the visual accompaniment to “The Temple Aflame” from West Coast progressive death metal goliaths, Arkaik.
The tune comes by way of Arkaik’s Lucid Dawn full-length, released last year via Unique Leader Records.
Elaborated the band of “The Temple Aflame,” “This track is all about the groove and raw heaviness. It’s straight forward and to-the-point, which is pretty different from previous stuff we’ve written but it serves its place within the album and adds variety between songs on Lucid Dawn. The song is basically about overcoming fear and the video kind of alludes to the concept of the album but from an alternative perspective. It was produced and directed by Nikko Deluna. We had a great time making it. We actually ended up filming on the same day/night as the fourth and final ‘blood moon’ total lunar eclipse of 2015, an obviously metal coincidence. Nikko was really professional and a blast to work with!”
