IN SOMNIA drop the video for "Crossing Styx"
IN SOMNIA is a PROGRESSIVE MODERN METAL quartet from the picturesque Tyrolean mountains, blending influences from all modern Metal styles into a unique, dark sound.
While the lyrics deal with traumas and philosophical thoughts, the instrumentation is catchy and complex at the same time.
With the support of film music composer Christoph Manucredo, the ambitious visionaries have managed to combine brute force with a certain gloomy atmosphere, which flows into the diverse overall sound through the Groove and Core Metal influences of drummer Dominic Granegger and Djent influences of bassist Florian Bacher.
The band comments about the "Crossing Styx" video:
"The song was written in the affect of loss in just one day. Contrary to the manifold convoluted lyrics of the rest of the album, it was important to reduce the lyrical output to a minimum, because the music should speak. Considering the subject, one would probably expect a more somber track, but it reflects exactly the emotion felt on Jan. 4th, 2021."
