Tue, Mar 20 2018: HYBORIAN

Latest release: "Hyborian: Vol. 1"

Release date: Fri, Feb 23 2018, US Fri, Feb 23 2018

HYBORIAN are releasing a video for "Maelstrom". The track has been taken from the band's debut album 'Hyborian Vol. I' (2017), which is currently re-issued by Season of Mist. The animated and bloodthirsty clip has been created by vocalist and guitarist Martin Bush and can be viewed below.

Hyborian comment: "We had some down time during the cold months this winter, so Martin decided to learn how to do animation. This is the very first result of his efforts, a video for 'Maelstrom'. 'Maelstrom' tells the story of a mountaintop battle with an elder god, aided by The Traveller (a pivotal figure in all our songs). It features all original artwork and animation by Martin, and was incredibly fun to make."
