I AM HERESY, led by singer Nathan Gray, also of BOYSETSFIRE, have released their first official music video for the song 'March Of The Black Earth' from their Century Media debut album 'Thy Will', which will be out March 3 in Europe/Australia/NZ and March 4 in North America. Nathan had this to say about the song and video:
"’March Of The Black Earth’, through symbolism and archetype, stands in defiance of the standard views of "good" and "evil". It speaks of human exploration into a life without fear or reverence for imaginary deities, who are bent on suppressing our most natural desires. If those deities deem a lust for knowledge, freedom of our carnal self, and disobedience to be sinful, then let us become the best sinners we can be!"

He went on to say, "Each suffering character in the video represents self-sacrifice, killing what is left of our self-expression. The ominous beast in the plague mask represents each character’s individual oppression. Their freedom is personified by the archetype Belial, or Baal, ("without a master") who represents an infernal innocence, freedom, and mockery of self-imposed slavery. Hear the call... Free yourself from the bondage of self-denial, and accept the gift of sin!"
