Gaerea is now streaming their Mirage bonus track "Dormant", which you probably missed unless you grabbed one of the album's limited edition physical copies. "Dormant" comes alongside a viciously violent music video by Claudio Marino which showcases the horrors of waterboarding. As Gaerea notes, the video has "no actors, no gimmicks, and no special effects." So what you're seeing is real.
"Complementing the song's aural journey, the video art installation accompanying 'Dormant' delves into the anguish and struggle for survival," said Gaerea of the song and video.
"The visuals depict the main character, trapped and enclosed in a tormenting world, as water relentlessly pours over his body, simulating drowning and suffocation. This immersive and visceral experience offers a harrowing glimpse into the protagonist's fight for life, evoking a range of emotions and challenging viewers to confront their own mortality."
