I don’t enjoy Son of Aurelius as much as I’d like to. I mean, they’re great musicians and the music is good, but I’m having a hard time getting into it. I suppose I should keep trying till it grows on me, as this is pretty awesome.
They’re in some dilapidated greenhouse, which is a slight change in scenery for the metal video cliche due to the green plants adding a touch of color where you’d normally see some dingy grays and browns. Perhaps this is a subtle metaphor for their melodic sound juxtaposed against their brutal technicality?
Nah, they just probably thought it looked pretty rad, and it does.
Son of Aurelius’ The Farthest Reaches is out now on Good Fight Music.
