Italian technical death metal outfit Hideous Divinity have unleashed a lyric video for the new song, “Acheron, Stream of Woe.” The track is the first single taken from the group’s upcoming EP, LV-426, out April 23rd via Century Media Records. The EP moves as a sub-narrative of the 1986 film Aliens, directed by James Cameron.
The group comments:
“’Acheron, Stream of Woe’ marks another step in our sound progression. Just like James Horner’s original score, we searched for all the dramatic and dissonant elements our music could achieve. It has been a great time, both the songwriting and the studio time. We felt good, we felt at home. Oh, and this time is about Aliens. Not a coincidence, for sure. A year has passed from the beginning of… all this. A year during which we all had to face our monsters. Very real ones. Enjoy.
We chose to concentrate on the story of Rebeca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley. We live the story from her point of view, a mixture of childhood’s happy life and memories cut off by the alien attack.”
