While we’re a few months past the release of Crystal Lake’s latest album Helix, the band has not stopped their activities relating to the album as they just put out a music video for the ninth track, Devilcry.
The new music video Devilcry is a profound piece of work, scenic shots, emotional melodies, and lyrics touching the bitter side of life—death and denial. This is a sound that has been established through each of the album releases, it’s more mature and sophisticated—an auditory characteristic that could not be found in their earlier days of work. It is definitely one of the more unique styles Crystal Lake has to offer while still incorporating a heavy load of headbanging components, not leaving any loyal metalheads behind.
Beginning the music video is vocalist Ryo’s monologue.
I’m sure as hell not ready to die
But watching the world go by
We all figure out
We say goodbye like a thousand times
Until it gets to the one that’s closest to you
Even the devil cried watching his mother fly away
New music video called Devilcry
I can’t explain the details of this song but this is a sad song. My heart has still broken since a beloved one passed away. I need to proceed with the next chapter but still confused.
