The symphonic Celtic death metallers of Toronto, ON based Bolero have released their new music video Pints Held High online in support of their debut release Voyage From Vinland.
"We (Bolero) are extremely happy and excited to have finally released our debut music video! The filming went very smoothly over the production period and we can’t be any happier with the work by director/ producer Garrett Henry provided us with." commented vocalist/bassist Morgan Rider.
Formed in 2005 by singer/bassist Morgan Rider as a black metal side project, Bolero’s present line-up and direction became focused and solidified in 2007. Having recently unleashed their debut album, Voyage From Vinland, the epic metal warriors behind Bolero are now gaining real momentum and converting listeners and critics across the globe into believers and preachers of symphonic Celtic death metal.
Having spent a year and a half recording at Attlesey Studios (Hallows Die, Will of the Ancients, Panzerfaust), the 11-track debut is a culmination of the band’s song writing and hard work from the past several years. Making the album a reality was an exercise in perfect construction, as Rider says, “each track was built from the ground up; from the heavy bottoms to the swirling orchestral parts. Kind of like a puzzle in a 100-track sort of way.”
Drawing influence from an array of genres and styles ranging from folk to death metal, and everything in between, it’s no wonder Voyage From Vinland simultaneously features formidably epic orchestrations, ear-piercing guitar riffs, throat-crushing speed and triumphant melodies.
