AMASEFFER Films Two New Videos

November 29, 2008

Israel's "holy project" AMASEFFER has issued the following update:

"We are happy to announce the shooting/editing of two documented video clips for two songs taken from our debut album, 'Exodus - Slaves for Life'. The chosen ones are: 'Slaves For Life' and 'The Burning Bush'. Both videos will be directed by Israeli Tal Engelstein (founder and singer of heavy rock band 195DB). Clips will have two versions: edited short version and full length as they appear in the album. It is not yet decided if we will release them both simultaneously or separately. An announcement regarding that will be posted by our record label, InsideOut Music/SPV, once the videos are done, hopefully in a month or so."

A widget for "Exodus - Slaves for Life", featuring guest appearances by Mats Levén (KRUX, ex-THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN),Angela Gossow (ARCH ENEMY) and Kobi Farhi (ORPHANED LAND),is available below.

"Exodus - Slaves for Life" is the first in a trilogy about the history of the people of Israel as portrayed in the Old Testament.

Hanan Avramovich (guitars),Yuval Kramer (guitars) and Erez Yohanan (drums) offer a unique mixture of progressive metal and epic Middle East-influenced orchestral film score parts played by a full symphony orchestra. All lead vocals were sung by Levén.

The album was recorded and mixed by Markus Teske (VANDEN PLAS, ABYDOS) and the artwork was created by Mattias Norén (EVERGREY, KAMELOT, EPICA).

"Exodus - Slaves for Life" was released on June 6 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland; June 9 in the rest of Europe; and June 24 in North America.

The title track, "Slaves for Life", is available for streaming on the band's official web site. According to the group, "this is the opening track from our first part of a trilogy recounting the Bible story of Moses and the Exodus from Egypt. On the first album of the trilogy we pick up the story right from the slavery period in Egypt when the new Pharaoh enslaves and oppresses the Israelites with forced labour. This is what we tried to emphasize on this song, the cruelty and ruthless power of the cold hearted Pharaoh and on the other hand the Israeli slaves desperate cry for deliverance!"
