POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM - New video out now

Metalnews Power of
You surely know Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, however when taken up by the Czech post-rock project POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM, the proverbial rabbit hole now leads to truly strange places. Specifically, to a fairytale world permeated with Tim Burton-esque aesthetics and with the universal chaos of H. P. Lovecraft. And it is only up to you whether you will disappear entirely in this void of meaninglessness, or whether your mind is open enough so that you are able to see things in a different, radically even, light.
We will not divulge more from the plot of the new single and music video “Aeon Echoes”. Likewise, we shall leave its meaning to the imagination of each and every one of you. In any case, this piece represents the first preview of the new composition of POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM which will attain its definitive form on the upcoming second studio album “ÆØN5”, and which leaves a strictly Lovecraftian framework, that is, enriches it with other themes and motifs.  
The new material, “Aeon Echoes” included, took shape in the MetalGate Studio, where all instrumentation and orchestration was recorded and where the final mix and mastering is now being done, as well as in the GM Studio, where the vocals were taped. These were undertaken by Ivo Doseděl, the vocalist of Ador Dorath, whose unmistakable voice will embody the narrator guiding you not only through the single, but through the whole album.
The aesthetic side arose out of the joint effort between the frontman of POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM, Marek “Frodys” Pytlík, and Lenka Machová, illustrator and vocalist of Ador Dorath. The music video was directed by Martin Ferko.

Along with the release of the single, MetalGate e-shop launched pre-orders of the “ÆØN5” album in two editions. The standard one features the album itself in a richly illustrated digibook, while the special one adds unique pre-order bonuses, specifically a real postcard from Arkham, a stylish guitar pick, and most importantly a real tentacle, canned and edible – import straight from R’lyeh from the mighty Cthulhu himself!
The “ÆØN5” album shall be released by MetalGate Records in September 2015.
