Music Video Premiere: "Escapist" by Drops of Heart

Russian melodic death metal band DROPS OF HEART have launched the official music video for "Escapist." The track comes off the band's upcoming new album Stargazers.

The video was filmed and edited by Alexander Becker, directed by Igor Chaban, and stars Anastasia Petruk.

The band comments on "Escapist," which was previously released as a digital single: “'Escapist' is one of the most melancholic songs of the album, besides its high speed and powerful energy. This gloominess, untethered from the typical pacing that accompanies it, allows the song to capture a specific type of despair in unusual clarity. This song is about people who lose touch with reality in the pursuit of their dreams. It’s about some kind of a method of flight from life’s problems, and how sad it would be.”
