BELOW Release “Bid You Farewell” VideoFriday, 1st August 2014
Swedish epic doom metal act BELOW have released the video for “Bid You Farewell,” a song from their 2014 album, Across the Dark River. The video was filmed by Emil Björkroth and edited by Vince Edwards from Metal Blade Records. This is the band’s first ever music video and properly encapsulates the band’s bleak and melancholic doom sound – this is a way for the uninitiated to expose themselves to top-notch, classic doom!
In the fall of 2011, BELOW was formed in Sweden by three wicked minds. After a discussion about why doom bands of today either lacked melodies or tried to sound as retro as possible, they decided to start a doom band that would pay tribute to epic and dark sound of: Nightfall by Candlemass, Headless Cross by Black Sabbath and Conspiracy by King Diamond.
BELOW recorded their debut album in early fall of 2013 at Andy LaRocque’s (King Diamond) Sonic Train Studios. The full length was released in April 2014 through Metal Blade Records. BELOW offered up the following comment on recording:”To have the opportunity to work with Andy La Rocque and Olof in Sonic Train Studios is amazing. It will be a truly epic album that will leave its mark in the history of doom.”
