Japanese metallic hardcore band View From the Soyuz have just dropped their first-ever music video for the track ‘Caligula’ off their upcoming EP ‘Immaculate’ on DAZE.
The EP will be out on February 10.
Knotfest published the following about the song:
“The band detailed the historic context of the track and explained the stylistic nuance that sources a variety of influences – both contemporary and classic. “It is based on Caligula, a Roman emperor who was once a great ruler but was assassinated due to his insane policies and cruel deeds. The song lyrics take from his story that people will pay the price if they live for their own selfish desires. Musically, there is a coldness and depressive melody reflected in the song that is mainly influenced by Scandinavian melodeath, metalcore, and Japanese hardcore bands from about 20 years ago.”
