Vesania Premieres New Video for ‘Notion’ via


Poland’s Vesania has launched a new video for “Notion“, directed by Aleksander Ikaniewicz and taken from their 2014 album, Deus Ex Machina! To watch the 6+ minute video epic from the symphonic black metal act that features current and former members of BehemothDimmu BorgirVader, and Decapitated, head over to

Vesania‘s Orion (guitars and vocals) comments: “This video we made for ‘Notion’ is not a typical music video clip. It’s more of a motion picture, and it’s over 6 minutes long, so get ready for lots of details. It’s a cinematic variation based on the idea behind the song. It tells a story of a follower, a story of being fascinated and making things you dream of, real for yourself. Becoming what you once called an idol for yourself. And then, the perspective changes once you reach this new different point of view. You realize you have more power than you can handle and at the same time, the art you create is just a way of fighting things you’re too weak to fight anywhere else. There’s a deceit in being the audience and the actor at once.

Recorded at Sound Division Studio, Deus Ex Machina is the fourth full-length from the Polish juggernaut Vesania. Translated from ancient Greek tragedy as “god from the machine”, the album title – plus overall theme of the record – tells a story of hopelessness: the characters are powerless to change their doomed fates. When paired with equally bleak music, the result is “another chilly, bleak, and thunderous collection of keyboard-orchestrated blackened metal expositions that do away with the roofs, lay waste to the crops, and yank the dead from the earth with the subtlety of an F5 tornado” (

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
