Portuguese Melo-Death Act APOTHEUS Show Us Their "Caves Of Steel" In New Video

Portuguese melo-death metallers Apotheus have released a new video for their latest single "Caves Of Steel," taken from the band's upcoming concept album The Far Star due out Oct. 31 via Black Lion Records.

According to the band's Bandcamp page, the album is "the untold story of our ancestry. A painful journey of survival in the majesty of cosmos, but also a delicate introspective about the human nature. When these two worlds collide, something new emerges. Hope, a mission and a destination."

Which makes sense if you pay attention to Apotheus' lyrics.

“’Caves of Steel’ is perhaps the most Isaac Asimov inspired song of this album, and fans will surely notice that,” they tell Decibel. “This song is essentially a preamble of the story we want to convey with the album. We are placing the spectator on these people’s shoes. We wanted to have the horrors and injustices of this world blatantly represented on the screen.

“Technically, it was certainly the most demanding video we have ever made,” the band continues. “We couldn’t do it without such a talented team on our side. There’s still a lot to unveil about this journey.”

Pre-order the album in Europe here and in the U.S. here.
