IXION - Atmospheric Doom-Metal Collective Unveils Captivating New Video for "The Advent"

French atmospheric doom collective IXION has just revealed their latest video for the song "The Advent," directed by Hugo Le Beller and featuring performances by Raphaël Mars and Irène Bonnot

The track is off the band's newest EP "Restriction," and marks another exciting prelude to their highly anticipated fifth studio album, "Evolution," set to be released in late October via Finisterian Dead End/Season of Mist.

"We are so excited to share with you this video for 'The Advent'!" says the band. "The song is about androids working to replicate emotions, and the first of them to finally experience feelings. We tried to create a short story around this theme, playing with characters and surroundings..."

"The Advent" offers a visually stunning and thought-provoking glimpse into a world where androids strive to understand and emulate human emotions. The narrative weaves a short story that aligns perfectly with the overarching concept of their upcoming album, "Evolution."

Following the critically acclaimed "L'Adieu aux Etoiles," "Evolution" is divided into three parts, each delving into different aspects of the human-android relationship. The album is an enthralling blend of progressive metal, melancholic, and atmospheric doom, showcasing IXION's unique sound.

The first part of the album, "Extinction," was released on April 16 and explores humanity's struggle with mortality amidst rapidly advancing android technology. The second part, "Restriction," released on June 14, takes listeners on a sci-fi, electronic, and ambient doom-metal journey, depicting androids' quest for emancipation and a closer connection to human emotions.

Originally formed in 2004 as a solo project by main composer and multi-instrumentalist Julien Prat, IXION has established a distinctive presence in the doom metal scene. Their innovative fusion of ambient/electronic music with atmospheric doom metal draws inspiration from science fiction, creating a unique and immersive auditory experience.
