The bound ones of Seville ORTHODOX, recently blasted all their ancestral musical force at Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. Fortunately for those who could not see this amazing performance, we are glad to share it with you with this video clip that captures the essence of this unique band.
The shots in this audiovisual piece, masterfully conducted by ARAM GARRIGA (American Jesus, Introspective, Cuzo “Scala Rossa”, etc), faithfully conveys all the tension and rawness that emanates from the stage when these penitents hidden beneath black robes make appearance.
On top of this the sound, after a brief martial intro extracted from their album Sentencia, comes directly from the stage´s PA system. The band is performing the opening track of their first album Gran Poder: Geryon’s Throne… for those who are not familiar with it, there are plenty of elements of the band´s hallmark: oppressive drums, solemn guitars and an anguish voice that bursts in from deepest yearnings of the human soul.
