Art of Anarchy, ‘Echo of a Scream’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Art of Anarchy are digging deeper into The Madness, now providing a visual to go along with their latest single "Echo of a Scream." The band is teaming up with Loudwire to bring you the exclusive premiere of the clip, which can be seen in the player above.
The Dale "Rage" Resteghini-directed clip is essentially a performance piece with some interesting visual effects that really drive home the "echo" and "scream" portions of the title of the song. Blurred and visible audio waves accentuate the performance which is set against the backdrop of a pillar-filled empty warehouse. The band is full of energy, with both Bumblefoot and Jon Votta stepping up with guitar solos in the midst of the track.
"Echo of a Scream" has an interesting history en route to its eventual completion," bassist John Moyer tells us, continuing, "I really enjoy collaborating with artists. Working with other creative minds is a great way to write uniquely powerful songs that go beyond just one person's vision. 'Echo of a Scream' is a testament to that. The original music bed was written by myself and Logan Mader of Once Human a few years ago for a project that never materialized. I always loved the music and I thought it might be a good fit for Art of Anarchy. As I was presenting it to the band I also asked David Draiman if he would be gracious enough to contribute to it as well. He came up with some great melody lines that combined with what Scott had for the song really took it over the top. By the time Bumblefoot and the Votta Brothers put their spin on it, it really came alive."
The song is featured on Art of Anarchy's second album (and first with Scott Stapp on vocals), The Madness. The album was released earlier this year, has already been chosen among our Best Rock Albums of 2017 (So Far) and is available to purchase at this location.
