Premiere: Romanian Prog Outfit WHITE WALLS Launch Animated Music Video for "Eye for an I"

Romanian progressive metal act White Walls are gearing for the launch of their third full-length album Grandeur on October 23rd. Premiering today via Prog Sphere is an animated music video for single “Eye for an I,” which was created by David Pagaille. Watch it below.

Talking about the song and story behind “Eye for an I,” bassist Șerban-Ionuț Georgescu said, “It’s just a total banger, an obvious choice for a single and it touches on a lot of the things (war, religion, hopelessness) that are central to Grandeur.

About David Pagaille‘s work on the video, Georgescu commented, “We lucked out insanely hard by happening upon David, the director, and animator who worked relentlessly on the video. What he created is informed by the album artwork and themes in the song, but twisted into a different style and with a David vs. Goliath type thing going on. We love it so much!

Hailing from the Romanian shores of the Black Sea, the progressive metal outfit White Walls was founded in 2009. The band’s sound has been associated with diverse groups, such as LeprousThe OceanOpethTool, and KarnivoolWhite Walls often intertwine elements of darkness and light with relentless riffs, melancholic chords, and a balanced mix between restlessness and restraint.

Grandeur opens a whole new spectrum of musical pathways and offers a more mature sound 7 years after the release of previous full-length effort Escape Artist. Paying attention to all details the band got the talented Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Animals as Leaders) to take care of mixing and mastering. After the success of the first single “Starfish Crown,” the band wanted to once more create something special.
