The Hirsch Effekt release new music video for ‘Palingegenesis’

THE HIRSCH EFFECT have released a new music video!

The new music video, for the song palingenesisis taken from the new EP of the German progressive metal trio, LONELYscheduled for release in August this year.

Speaking of the new song, bassist Ilja John Lappin said, palingenesis is my contribution to the LONELY EP, on which each band member wrote a song. It is the memory of a path that I inevitably had to take. When life as we knew it suddenly came to a halt with the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was forced to face a very dark place that I had mentally arrived at. A crisis of purpose, sealed by a cycle of loneliness and depression as well as the tireless and at the same time unstable routine of previous years, unfolded with full force in a new and unfamiliar environment.

During this long period of isolation, I took a break that I desperately needed. Unable to stop. Unable to understand who I had really become over the years and where I had landed in life. palingenesis is a hymn to the battle itself. In your own strength, which you’re often sure you don’t have anymore, especially when bigger, darker clouds are gathering on the horizon again. A hymn to the fight against your own heartbeat.
