Five years ago Toronto’s Earth’s Yellow Sun released their sophomore EP “The Infernal Machine”. Now to celebrate the anniversary of that EP, they are re-releasing the tracks in the form of animated videos. The band has unleashed two videos so far, “Part I – Assembly” and “Part II – Unveiling”. Today, the band unveil their third video for the track “Part III – Betrayal”, continuing the next chapter of their illustrated story.The band explains the track:
“‘Part III – Betrayal’, the robot realizes the contradiction between its core mission of bringing peace and stability to the world, and the violent path that has bet set for it by its human creators. The intelligence chooses to revise its own mission parameters, and proceeds to turn on the human civilization in order to bring peace and stability to the world at large. Violence ensues.”
The animated video for “Part III – Betrayal” can be viewed HERE.
Earth’s Yellow Sun‘s concept EP “The Infernal Machine” is the perfect soundtrack to these videos, the premise lying in a futuristic society, the dependency on technology and artificial intelligence, and the conflict that arises between man and machine. Guitarist Josh Hanff shares his excitement for this project:
“The release in question, The Infernal Machine was actually released exactly five years ago, but we are releasing this comic book video concept for the five-year anniversary. The project has been in the works between myself and a couple of artists since the actual EP was completed, and we’re really excited to be able to finally show our fans (and potential fans) the story behind the music, which was always in my mind (and my co-producer’s mind) as we created the EP back in 2014/2015. “
An incredible mix of guitars, saxophone, choir, violins, and a heavy rhythm section, Earth’s Yellow Sun is difficult to label yet easy to enjoy. Recommended for fans of Periphery, Dream Theater, and Animals as Leaders.
