AVATARIUM Releases Lyric Video For “Girl With The Raven Mask”

Monday, 24th August 2015

The Leif Edling-led AVATARIUM have posted the lyric video for “Girl with the Raven Mask,” which is the title track of their forthcoming new album due October 23.

Comments AVATARIUM guitarist Marcus Jidell: “It is an up-tempo hardrock/doom number with a very strong lyric made by Leif Edling about a little girl with a big raven head mask. The song asks questions like: Who is she and what did she experience? What is it that she doesn’t want us to see?”

Edling states about the CD: “I think we have created something unique this time with AVATARIUM. The songs are more written to be just songs and there are some really nice moments on the record that I personally love… the straightforward title track, the beautiful ‘January Sea’, the riff in ‘Ghostlight’ and the groove in ‘Run Killer Run’. The organ and the Rhodes piano are ridiculously loud in the mix at times; even Dr. Carl agrees [laughs], but i think it gives even more edge to the songs! I hope people will dig ‘The Girl With The Raven Mask’ as much as I do myself, and if they don’t, it’s their problem. A band can’t deliver more than we have done here, so it is an album close to perfection! When an album is perfect… shoot me!”

Jidell adds: “AVATARIUM have been taking another big step with this album and I can’t wait for people to hear the songs and to play them live on our tour in November! It has been a lot of work but also a great pleasure to be the producer of this album, I’m very happy with the result and I feel very proud to be a member of this powerful and talented band!”
