Sawthis Premiere New 360-Degree Video, "Start a New Game"
Italian metal group Sawthis will release their new album, 'Babhell,' on March 24 via Mighty Music. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere their new song and 360-degree music video, "Start a New Game." Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Bassist Gaetano Ettorre said, "For the 'Start a New Game’ music video, we created a 'modern square' full of confusion and solitude. This square seems crowded by virtual people projected on the protagonist through the monitors, but at the end it's just a bare and sad room. The protagonist can't stop watching the monitors as he is essentially fed by that media, so he eventually becomes a puppet under virtual oppression."
Regarding the album, Ettorre added, "'Babhell,' in general, touches upon themes of poor human communication and its negative result. Everyone is talking, and no one is listening or looking at what’s happening right in front of them. Ultimately, in a world where everyone is talking and no one is listening, honest dialogue becomes impossible and thoughts become just noise like a Babel, a hellish Babel, hence the name 'Babhell.' If I had to choose a term to describe the sound of the record, it would be ‘multi-emotional chaos.’ Our music is a balance of rage and happiness, resignation and reaction, love and hate—'Babhell' represents a perfect mix of everything.”
