A sleepwalking journey into a beautiful nightmare!
"Ballad of the Evil Fate" is a sleepwalking journey into a beautiful nightmare filled with a bitter-sweet irony and collaged with a grotesque, dazzling imagery.
A perfect companion to your Halloween party. Surreal and imaginative with a Steampunk masquerade, this brilliantly crafted small-scale rock theater of horrors has a strange mesmerizing and mysterious quality.
Creatively photographed and artistically edited, scene by scene it takes you deeper and deeper into the workings of the director's subconsciousness that tells you the story of the vagabond who's been foretold a strange fate.
Arthur Mountaniol is a sole creator of this video. His song "Ballad of the Evil Fate" is the dark rock ballad sung in a weird vocal style. It haunts you like some ugly warlocks from the Medieval times, where as the trippy music itself vividly illustrates the overall dream-like vibe of this slow-paced spectacle.
The vagabond with his old concertina hanging loosely over his shoulder, drifts in chains through his nightmares, meeting some spooky characters and looking to escape from his destiny while the iron nun mocks him, playing a mandolin in her chamber of tortures.
"Ballad of the Evil Fate" is not a kind of music video you normally see nowadays. It's not aimed to promote the artist's next release or gigs. It's just all by itself like an auteur's work existing in its own dimension which can be appreciated only by its artistic merit, not popularity or sales statistics.
