Hi dear readers and listeners! We are very happy to share our first videoclip with you!
“Agni’s Dynasty (Fire I)” is the single of our second music production “Solar Time’s Fables” which was published two months ago through DarkTunes music group. Now you may enjoy this song through a visual perspective and we hope you like it!
The video concept
The lyrics of this song are inspired by the Indian god Agni who represents the energy of the fire in the Vedic literature and also means literally “fire” in Sanskrit. We created a complete new story from it to give our videoclip that interesting touch. You can read the complete description on this link.
If you already watched the videoclip you might have noticed that there’s a new drummer playing. Sepp Coeck is our new session drummer. He joined us two weeks after Maxime Moreira decided to leave the band. His decision took us by surprise because we didn’t see it coming but Max had his reasons to take this step. Here are his thoughts on the subject:
“I am really sorry for this but I don’t have the energy for this anymore and there are other personal reasons. It was my pleasure meeting you all, playing and learning with you all. Thank you for the great times. I hope that we can still meet each other sometime at a concert and grab a drink together. Again deeply sorry Isabel and thank you for understanding”.
The fact is that Max recorded a gorgeous album along with us so we are very thankful for that. We wish him success and happiness with his new choices in life. If you didn’t have the opportunity to watch his performance, visit our YouTube channel and take a look at our first studio diary episode or go to a gig of his Death Metal band named Anthrophagus.
Sepp Coeck is the guitarist of the Dutch Trash Metal band X-Tinction and drummer of the Metalcore band, Encrypted. He has a great technique, versatility, style and motivation. His first rehearsal with us was actually during the filming of the videoclip! So we are very lucky and glad we found him. We hope you can also see him playing live with us soon…
So in order to give you the right perspective of “what’s cooking”, here you have his personal opinion about us: When I first heard that Fabulae Dramatis were looking for a drummer, I started the same way I always do: checking their background. I don’t want to cocky and don’t want to sound like “I’m the best drummer ever”, but I do get a lot of requests for playing the drums in a band. Mostly I turn them down ‘cause I couldn’t find anything that makes those bands unique. I am someone who wants to challenge myself and try things that make me evolve as a musician.
Fabulae Dramatis has some kind of a spark that few bands have. I already know we will have a hard time to find appropriate moments to rehearse. But I am sure that if they have the right amount of patience with me (I do have a stuffed agenda with a few bands and a few jobs), that this can turn out to be something beautiful.
My first real-life contact with the other members was during the recording session of their upcoming video clip for “Agni’s Dynasty (Fire I)”, (the first track on the new upcoming album). It felt quite odd to address everyone in English at first, but I guess it’s just some kind of habitude one needs to adapt. After that came the first rehearsal,… To be honest: I have the feeling that the other members have the right professional-like attitude to make this band have the qualities that can make a band bigger than just the average band”.
We almost “hear” you thinking… Yes, indeed! We already have a release date. For now we can tell you that “Solar Time’s Fables” will bring its light in September 2017. Stay tuned for the exact date! There are more surprises to come.
In the meantime, enjoy our videoclip following this link.
