Progressive instrumental heavyweights Polyphia just released the third music video from their upcoming album, Renaissance, a dew days ago.
This particular video features a ballerina doing interpretive dance to one of the band’s most powerful tracks.
I have to say, I can’t get too deep into most instrumental bands because the songs tend to sound too similar. This, however, is a trio of guys that are so ridiculously talented that I find myself rewinding their songs more often than not. It’s really music you can get lost in.
There is a definite darker feel to the newly released songs compared to their debut, Muse.
I got the chance to see these guys live at the DGD 10th Anniversary Tour and I can honestly say I was completely surprised. I thought the lack of any vocals would turn me away from their music. Instead I found myself in awe of the power that they convey in their music. Especially with only three members.
Check out the first three singles from their album, Renaissance (due out March 11th on Equal Vision Records) below:
