Rendezvous Point: veröffentlichen neue Single Apollo & Album Universal Chaos erscheint am 24.05.
Die Norwegische Progressive Metal Band Rendezvous Point stellt mit Apollo die erste Single aus dem neuen Studioalbum Universal Chaos, samt Video, vor.
In den letzten Jahren konnte sich das Quintett um Leprous Schlagzeuger Baard Kolstad durch Ihre tighten energiegeladenen Performances auf Europatouren mit Haken, Leprous und Long Distance Calling eine treue Fangemeinde erspielen. Mit Universal Chaos erscheint am 24.05. das zweite Studioalbum der Band.
Rendezvous Point über den Videodreh zu Apollo: „We were very certain from the beginning that we wanted to make Apollo our first single and music video. It had this energy to it that we thought would appeal to the fans, and also represented a fresh direction in our sound. Plus we got a lot of positive feedback from it when we played it live. Originally we were going to shoot the video in Oslo, but Geirmund found a huge abandonded factory just outside of Kristiansand, so we decided to shoot there instead. And it turned out to be the perfect location. A dirty place, with a huge room in it, where it looked like it had been a zombie apocalypse. Troll Toftenes, who shot and produced the video, took some time to think out a story we could have in the video. We loved the idea he had, so we ended up going for it. Him and Baard went to the largest costume warehouse in Oslo, rented a bunch of post-apocalyptic looking clothes, and we ended up shooting a story that we thought was really cool. However it was really, really cold to be outside in winter Norway two days straight for shooting. Geirmund also managed to gather his students as extras for the videos, and they must have frozen to death, standing still behind us while we were playing and shooting the video. But all in all it was worth it, and the video ended up looking pretty badass.“
