Canadian progressive metal outfit The Body Politic have premiered a new music video for the single, "Parasoul" on Alternative Press. The song comes from their 2017 contr:addiction EP, which broke the progressive metal mold and revealed the most sophisticated songwriting the band has accomplished to date.
“'Parasoul' is a song about pain. Our director Mike perfectly captured the bitterness, sadness, and anger in the song with his treatment of the video. Our latest album explores the world of addiction, and how substance abuse only temporarily masks pain," commented drummer, Spencer Bowman. "A parallel can be drawn to the video for 'Parasoul' as it illustrates how vengeance is unsatisfying, and only masks the damage that motivates it. If revenge is used as the antidote, the pain remains.”
Twisting energetic chaos with melodic soulful solos, the band aims to bring something new to the metal world. Watch "Parasoul" below.
