Apothesary have released a lyric video for their new song “Tempest (Even Tide)”. The track features a guitar solo by Bill Hudson (U.D.O., I Am Morbid, Trans-Siberian Orchestra). The clip was created by Tsunami Films. Guitarist Clayton Cagle said of the song and video:
“Musically, parts of ‘Tempest’ date as far back as 2010. Some of those riffs (albeit modified) are actually some of the earliest material I had ever written – which is special to me to reflect on. It was also a chance for Greg and I to write and arrange together; bouncing ideas off of each other in a music composing program. He and I always seem to sync up when we talk about our goals and opinions. And I have always, ALWAYS wanted a giant triplet breakdown with an ominous, tremolo-picked lead.
Lyrically, this was the last song written for the record. At the time… I was experiencing some things that I didn’t know how to handle. There were a lot of emotions that I couldn’t make sense of. And because of the way the previous year of my life had unraveled, I was already in a dangerous place.
I remember sitting in my bed one night, alone, with the substance that I was convinced was the only thing helping me (the same substance later convinced me that I was about to die, but that’s another story). I was miserable to the point that I hadn’t written anything in weeks but I knew I needed to do something to release that pressure. So I forced myself to pick up my notebook and just started writing down thoughts. The arranged version of that desperate night became ‘Tempest’.”
