Promotional Video Review: SECOND TO SUN The Wall by James K. Blaylock

The Wall
From their full length The Black, released independently May 16, 2018
Place of origin: Russian Federation
Genre: Post black/groove metal
Release date: June 27, 2018
Second to Sun have created a haunting soundscape within the song The Wall. Lulling it's listeners to come into their musical abyss. The video seems almost fanmade, at first, until you realize that these guys are most assuredly inviting you to take flight with them. Lyrics like "Come on, knock with your hands. Yes, more pounding Do not you hear? - Oh, the wall is strong!" propel us deeper into those desired darker meanings. But the real question remains to be, "Do we wish to learn more?" With such mystifying lyrics and an altogether eerie video how could we not? -James K. Blaylock
