Greek progressive metal/rock act RAW IN SECT have unveiled the video for “Arena”, taken from their forthcoming new album “Kitro” which is slated for release on July 6th via Aisa Music/Plastic Head.Lead vocalist and guitarist Kostas Diamandis comments on the song and video:
“’Arena’ is tied with Athens like a wordplay. In Greek it’s called “Athena” so the words resemble each other. The song/video is a hymn about the city itself.
The traffic, the worn out buildings, the people, the stray cats and dogs and of course the streets are all part of what composes various parts of the city that you won’t find in tourist guides.
This song is meant to depict the routine/everyday life of normal people and what one sees in a real walk through the city.
We wanted to do this as the city itself has been a great source of inspiration throughout the entire record and are sure it’s going to inspire the viewers as well”.
Possessed by a diverse, surprising and unique sound that fuses traditional Greek folk music with heavy guitars, Raw In Sect have toured extensively across Europe which has earned them a growing fanbase and recognition as one of the most deserving bands rising from the underground.
