“Binary,” the final video in melodic metal band RAVENSCRY’s weekly series of lyric videos leading up to the release of the upcoming album 100, is available today
“Binary,” the thrashiest song from 100, focuses on the will to cull together all parts of one’s personality and find one’s true self, without outside influence or the desire to feel accepted by society.
“‘Binary” describes the game we have to play every day with our mind and ego,” explains vocalist Giulia Stefani. “It’s a research into one’s true identity. In these times, thousands of eyes are upon us, judging our lives and creating false images of ourselves. Sometimes this deception brings us to a sort of inner-mind revolution, so we change our perspective and listen to our real voice – one that whispers beyond the human ego.”
RAVENSCRY has already released three lyric videos in the series:
- “The Entertainer” – a song inspired by entertainers who keep audiences smiling while silently struggling and fighting personal demons – can be viewed at https://youtu.be/41FhzbVAar0.
- “The Door Inside,” which examines the internal struggle to find balance between instinct and rationality. It is available at https://youtu.be/r07aMfSeVdM.
- “The Gatekeeper” gives voice to the emotional charge found in the desire for personal revenge. Watch the video at https://youtu.be/o282ef-NTpo.
The lyric video series was preceded by an official video for the first single, “Maybe,” in March. Check out “Maybe” at https://youtu.be/ROgLlZSBfzE
100 was produced by RAVENSCRY, mixed by Roberto Laghi (In Flames, Hardcore Superstar) and mastered by Dragan Tanasković (In Flames, Dark Tranquillity). The album features artwork by Spanish artist Mario “Aégis” S. Nevado.
RAVENSCRY first made a mark on the world in 2011 with their debut album, One Way Out, and began steadily grinding their way up the ranks of the global metal scene. In 2014, the band spearheaded a campaign to raise awareness about violence against women with the release of The Attraction of Opposites and the single “Alive,” released on International Women’s Day. 2017 saw the release of the concept album The Invisible, which told a complex and mystifying coming of age tale, followed by numerous European festival appearances and tours with Angra and Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime.
The melodic metal band is launching back onto the global metal scene with the highly anticipated 100. Featuring dramatically soaring vocals, bone-shaking rhythms and dark songwriting, for nearly a decade this fierce group has been hooking millions of listeners worldwide with their infectious anthems. Their first album in three years, 100 attests to RAVENSCRY’s bold return. With more energy, more melody and even smarter lyrics, 100 stays true to the core of RAVENSCRY’s sound while remaining accessible enough to hook even more new listeners. Sincere, intelligent and brutally honest — the album sums up the human experience to a tee, from epic highs to soul-crushing lows.
