GALES OF AVALON: 'Second Sight' Video Released

"Second Sight", the new video from Calgary's blackened death metal quartet GALES OF AVALON, can be viewed below. The self-produced clip was filmed around the band's hometown and was later edited by GALES guitarist Mark Dillon. The song comes off the band's upcoming concept album and full-lenth debut, "Black Island", which is scheduled for release before the end of the year.

GALES OF AVALON began as a one-man project when Dillon set out to write and record a black metal concept album drenched in Celtic folklore, but with an underlying theme of real life difficulties and consciences. After demoing several songs, he was prompted by friends to play this music live, and began the process of putting together a band.

Jamie Gallo's ferocious double kick and seemingly unending energy made him an obvious choice for the job as GALES OF AVALON's drummer. James Neill took on the role of bassist, bringing along an infectious enthusiasm for metal, and an unmatched guttural growl.

In late 2009, keyboardist Pamela Porosky joined the ranks, allowing then-lead guitarist Dylan Hansen, who previously fulfilled GALES' need for keys, to focus on the art of shred. Hansen left the band in early 2010 to focus on his education.

Incorporating elements of death metal, thrash, and traditional metal into Dillon's originally all-black concept has made GALES OF AVALON a much stronger entity than ever before.
