"Purania", the new official music video from Italian alternative metallers Destrage, is now available for your eyes and ears below. Track for this video clip is taken off the group's forthcoming new product Are You Kidding Me? No., to be relased worldwide via Metal Blade Records on March 4th in North America and February 28th/March 3rd in Europe/UK.
Destrage elaborates on the video's concept and animation: "We did the shooting on a freezing Sunday, in January 2013. Cold keeps people awake and reactive, but we didn't know it before that day!Anyway, a pretty large team of people was involved in the process of making this video. The Jack Stupid Collective came up with the concept together with the band, wrote the screenplay, set the style and organized the production. There was quite a lot of stuff to do. Location managing, set design (that place was a total blank warehouse). Casting, illustration, actor and extras managing and a lot of logistic shit. We also hired a D.O.P. and two camera operators, an electrician and everyone we needed on the set. When everything was shot, The Jack Stupid collective worked on it very hard for a few months in post production.
It was a pretty exhausting process, especially the animation of every single drawing, but we're satisfied about the final result. We would like to thank everyone who was involved.
The story is set in an imaginary city, 'Purania', where personal choice has been banned, and people are controlled by a central brain unleashing an army called 'Select & Defend', divided in small squads of 'Blamers' and 'Erasers'. An underground secret movement, which the government calls 'The Incoherents' is planning a revolt."
