Soulsplitter exclusively premiere video for Disconnected

Soulsplitter exclusively premiere video for Disconnected

Three years after their stunning debut album “Salutogenesis” (read our 10/10 review here), german prog prodigies Soulsplitter return with their sophomore effort “Connection” (estimated release date: March 11, 2022). In December already, they unleashed the hard hitting first single, aptly titled ‘Incineration’, and now it is time for single number 2, ‘Disconnected’, and we are happy to present an exclusive premiere of it together with a visually daring music video a day ahead of the general digital release of the single on all streaming platforms.

Says the band:

‘Disconnected’ is the first track from our upcoming concept album “Connection” and therefore sets the tone for the following journey to unfold. It deals with the realization that the perceived reality doesn’t really align with the innate sense of self. It acknowledges a disconnect between the inner and outer world – and the promise of potential and fulfillment if one is willing and brave enough to look within, to challenge old beliefs, face innate fears and to accept the fleeting nature of emotions. This is reflected beautifully in the video by Tobias Lammers: A strange creature finds itself locked in a lost place. Through frustration and agony the only way leads inside – depicted by an animated world inhabited by frightening monsters, manifestations of self-limiting beliefs and fears.

This is Disconnected:

The story is going to be continued in the music video for the albums last track – ‘Reconnected’ (estimated release date 01.04.2022). It is only through the process which unfolds over the course of “Connection” that the creature finds the courage to challenge what sits at the root of its misery – and to become one with it.

About the Author

Dario

Co-Founder of The Progspace - Dario discovered the world of Prog upon hearing "Shine on you crazy diamond" for the first time at the tender age of 12 around the turn of the millennium. Coming from a musical family and brought up with classical music, this seemed to be the logical next step. Attended the school of www.progulus.com from 2002, delving into both directions: catching up with the history of already more than 30 years of progressive music as well as always staying up to date with the newest prog sounds. He loves meeting like-minded people and enjoying live music at a concert somewhere in Europe.
