Israeli dark/epic metallers DESERT have released their new and epic video “Son Of A Star”. The video is a second clip released as a support for “Never Regret” album which was released during 2015 via Raven Music and Irond Records. “Son Of A Star” music video can be seen below.
The video was filmed and produced by Vadim Mechona, who’s known by his previous works with DESERT‘s “Never Regret” and also ORPHANED LAND‘s “Let The Truce Be Known” videos. The shooting process took place at the Ha-Makhtesh Ha-Katan location, a geological erosional landform of Israel’s Negev desert, during the extreme meteorological conditions, +43C heat.
The storyline of the video and the song itself is based on the Shimon Bar Kochva’s rebellion against Roman Empire in 132-135 CE at the ancient Judea area and describes it’s tragic fall in the striving for freedom of the Jewish state.
The fighters of historical fencing club “The Knights Of Jerusalem” have been taking an active part in this video shooting process. All the costumes used in the video were produced and based on their historical predecessors.
Desert will tour Eastern Europe co-headlining with Cyprus Power Metal pioneers WINTER’S VERGE during October/November. More information can be found at DESERT‘s website.
