Dutch progressive metallers Cirrha Niva have released a music video for the song “Afraid to Bleed” taken from their well-received album Out of the Freakshow. The video which features Lisette van den Berg (Scarlet Stories, Ayreon) as a guest vocalist can be seen below.
Cirrha Niva‘s singer LeGrand commented about the song’s lyrics: “If you’re Afraid to Bleed for whatever thoughts you might have that’s not according to or differs from whatever you were made to believe. Act like you’re taught to, and be as the ones before you. Don’t question or doubt, just do as your told. Or they will cut you down.“
About “Afraid to Bleed” guitarist Rob Willemse had to say, “For this up-tempo rocksong we had a clear ending in mind. We aimed for a vocal part in the sphere of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’ or Ennio Morricone’s ‘Once Upon A Time In The West.’ And with Lisette van den Berg’s voice, input, creativity and emotion we got what we wished for.“
