ESPERFALL Release Their New Single And Music Video Plato’s Cave

ESPERFALL have released their long-awaited third music video Plato’s Cave from their new album Origins In Darkness. The song encourages us to open our eyes and really see what is happening around us. Like the other two singles (Retreat Into Dreamland, Tempest In Paradise), this track’s got a magical, enchanting music video, too.

“Plato’s Cave is another signature Esperfall song, hence it was chosen as the third one to shoot a music video for.  A relatively fast paced song where you can hear an unexpected soaring chorus that brings back the vibes of a classic Eurotrance track from the 90’s. Peter brings the growls from the depths of the underworld to compliment the clean vocals of Nora, and both Laszlo and Zsombor showcase their excellence in their soloing abilities. Plato’s Cave is an unstoppable metal hit that you simply cannot stop jumping to” – Zsombor (keyboards).

“For this music video we were aiming for a kind of primal setting so we decided to shoot the video in the wild open, in the middle of nowhere. The dark of the night and the use of fire in the video is also a nice match for the story that the song is trying to tell. The shooting was extremely intense and was done in a record time as there was an approaching storm constantly looming over our heads, urging us to wrap up the process as soon as possible… We barely managed to finish all the takes before the storm arrived with heavy rains and thunder. The lightning strikes that can be seen in the music video are 100% real” – Zakk (drums).


Origins In Darkness presents the initial phase of the human soul’s journey as it forces itself to face its inner demons. As every dark phase in our lives, this state is the starting point of a deep, spiritual journey and self-discovery. Every song is an echo of a major emotional issue vocalized with self-criticism, doubt and fear fuelled with anger and disbelief, oftentimes directed towards our society. These are the battles we have to face in our everyday lives.
This journey and process comes with the inevitable act of turning inward, diving deeper and deeper into our own souls, rediscovering ourselves and coping with part of ourselves we don’t want to pay attention to or want to deny. The album is the invocation of every listener’s hidden emotional or mental answers to every question they never were brave enough to ask and everything they don’t want to think about.
To the person who undertakes this spiritual journey it feels like the dissection of their own soul.
Some diseases and disorders – physical or mental – are created, manifested by ourselves. This statement is the core message of the myriad of emotions the album is pondering upon.
