In support of their new album, the band have just released a new video for the title track ‘Like Crows For The Earth’. This is the first full official video from the album following The Groundfeeder released earlier in the year.
Tethra’s new video conveys a strong message, the band explained about the imagery: ”The deliberately strong and provocative images you can see in the video are meant to reflect on the indiscriminate exploitation that human beings are doing daily to the damage of the planet hosting us.Our symbolic sacrifice wants to be a warning and a message: we are one with nature, and only by taking care of it we can favour the rebirth and have a darker future.”
Tethra produces elements such as acoustic breaks, striking solos and Doom-influenced melodies are mixed with charismatic vocals courtesy of the versatile frontman Clode Tethra. Blending gloomy Doom Metal, raging Death Metal and melodic early 90s Gothic Metal tinged vocals, Tethra will be the last nail on your cross.
The frontman explains: “In terms of songwriting, the lyrics have become more intimate on “Like Crows for The Earth”, focusing on topics such as loss, solitude and feelings of rejection. The album also deals with social issues, such as mankind’s indiscriminate exploitation of the Earth, metaphorically represented by the crow: if not stopped, this animal poses an undeniable threat to its ecosystem and is bound to destroy all other species.”
