Back in October–on Halloween in fact–we streamed “The Casting” from V, the latest (and appropriately titled) effort from The Flight of Sleipnir. Even though the record isn’t out until the end of the month, we’re pleased to premiere the Colorado duo’s video for “Beacon in Black Horizon”, the eight minute-plus opus that closes out the record. Clayton Cushman and David Csicsely also dropped a little knowledge about what you’ll be seeing:
“Beacon in Black Horizon” is the story of a chieftain dying and passing into the next realm. Working with the production company, we came up with the idea to abstractly convey the concept of his death and subsequent journey. The shoot was done mostly in front of green screens with local talent and help from some of our friends, including Kelly Schilling who plays flute on another track of the album.
