SIGHT OF EMPTINESS Release “Deception” Video; Guest Appearance By Christian Alvestam

Tuesday, 22nd July 2014

Costa Rica’s melodic death metallers SIGHT OF EMPTINESS have released “Deception.” Filmed in Iceland during the band’s 2012 European tour, the clip features a guest appearance by Christian Älvestam (ex-Scar Symmetry, Solution .45).

“Deception” comes off SIGHT OF EMPTINESS’ third album, Instincts, which features additional guest appearances by the following musicians: Glen Drover (King Diamond, Megadeth), Ralph Santolla (Deicide, Iced Earth, Obituary), vocalist Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe) guests on the song “Essence” and later appeared in its music video, Ole Halvard Sveen (Extol, Mantric, Lengsel) and last but not least, one that comes as a shocking-but-pleasant surprise, no other than the Minister of Culture of Costa Rica; Manuel Obregón, who plays the Marimba and the acoustic piano.

Instincts was recorded at SoloHits Studios in San José, Costa Rica with Swedish producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Scar Symmetry, Watain, Mors Principium Est, Solution .45, Miseration), who traveled all the way to Costa Rica to work with the band closely for about 22 days. The CD was mixed and mastered by Thomas Johansson at Panic Room Studios in Skara, Sweden.
