Finnish hardcore heroes Unkind unveil their breathtaking new video for Olemisen Pelko today. Translated into English as ‘Fear of Being’, Olemisen Pelko is taken from sixth studio album Pelon Juuret and the video was created by band member Pekka, who is credited as “sound and confusion” on the album; the master of synths and samples for the band. In addition, the band have confirmed a mammoth 23-date European tour supporting the mighty KEN mode.
Drummer, Saku, commented: “It’s a montage made by our machinist Pekka depicting the overall theme of the song. An observation of people searching for comfort, something to keep their fear of being and dying at bay – whether through political or spiritual movements, or even consumerism, no matter how meaningless it will ultimately be”.
The video is being exclusively premiered via Metal Hammer UK and can be watched here.
On the upcoming tour, Saku added: “We’re very excited to hit the road with KEN mode. They have a very powerful sound and their progressive edge and chaotic atmosphere are a perfect match for Unkind.”
Pelon Juuret – which was released on July 9th in North America, July 8th in the UK / World, and July 5th in Germany, Benelux and Finland – is available on CD/LP/Digital. Exclusive packages are available here and the album is available on iTunes.
