Brazilian Metal band Armored Dawn have released an epic video for “Viking Soul” ahead of upcoming tour dates throughout Eastern Europe in January and February. The single and video are from their album “Power Of Warrior”.
The driving rocker was shot over the course of 4 days in Northern California and features the band performing amidst the mountainous backdrop of Yosemite National Park while a conceptual story featuring a warrior plays out on the battlefield. Swords, hatchets and arrows are drawn, with survival on the line. The clip was directed by Anthony Pietromonaco and produced by Marco De Molina for the Veva Entertainment company.
Vocalist Eduardo Parras says, “Being a native Brazilian, the experience of filming the ‘Viking Soul’ video in the U.S. was thrilling. We filmed in Yosemite National Park, and it was my first time visiting. The park was totally unique, different than anything I’ve ever seen. We shot the first scene on a mountaintop at sunrise. The fantastic views, the energy, the magic hour of colors, it’s an experience that I will never forget, a great moment in my life!”
He continues, “We were lucky to work with a wonderful and professional team that worked hard and took care of us every step of the way, led by Bob Chiappardi at Concrete. I hope everyone that watches this video can feel the hard work and good energy that was put into it.
“Viking Soul” comes from the band’s first album “Power Of Warrior”, released in July of 2016 and came in @ # 10 on Metalholic’s “Best Power Metal Albums of 2016” and #39 on CMJ’s year-end Loud Music charts. The band will be heading out on a tour of Eastern Europe in January and February, with more dates planned in native Brazil in the late spring. The band has begun writing a new album, which is expected to be recorded this summer and released in the 4th quarter of 2017.
