Apocalyptic Hearts is the second single off Force Majeure’s third album ”The Rise of Starlit Fires” coming out on September 8th via Mighty Music / Target Group worldwide (except via Bickee Music in Japan). The Video for the song was directed, filmed and edited by Toni Salminen of Metalscope.fi and it was shot in East Sound studios and Suomenlinna Sea Fortress in Helsinki, Finland.
”Apocalyptic hearts was selected to be the video song based on comments from our label. We were asking what they find to be the most catchy song and out of few options, we ended up picking Apocalyptic Hearts”, Jussi from Force Majeure comments.
”For starters we filmed the full band performance parts and as a result we got bunch of sweaty hot powermetallers on tape. Soon we found out that despite the good looks of the band, we won’t be selling million copies of the single without some additional action material. To counterweight the almost romantic poetry-like lyrics of the song, we got Mr. Apocalypse to do an amazing role in his character and completing various tributes to different power metal themes. Can you spot them all?”, Jussi adds.
