Draconian - Debut 'Under A Godless Veil' Single And Lyric Video

Draconian unveil second single along with lyric video for "Sorrow Of Sophia", taken off their new studio album Under A Godless Veil, set for official release on October 30th, 2020 via Napalm Records.

Vocalist Anders Jacobsson comments: "Sorrow Of Sophia" was the first lyric, and one of the first songs written for Under A Godless Veil. This was years ago now, and I remember I'd just finished a lecture on Gnostic cosmology by Terence McKenna. He'd been speaking of the goddess Sophia's ordeal and her story affected me on a very deep level. It's sad yet heart-wrenchingly majestic bringing all of existence into it. I knew I had to do something with it for Draconian as I was already having a few of Johan's new song-ideas. This sparked what was later to become a whole album inspired by this story. It started here, with this song.

"Sorrow Of Sophia" is a complex song about a complex spiritual being. With it comes a diverse nature consisting of an initial minimalist soulful expression to feisty, heavy riffing with a harsh demonic formula to post-rock melancholia and symphonic soundscapes. Heike's pure and crystalline vocals are beautifully entrenched holding the very spirit of the song."

Very beautiful. I like it better than the first single for sure. but I feel like Heike's voice is not as strong as in "Sovran" again with the whispering. Hope the rest of the album is better
