On 30.08.2019 in Protokultura, Gdansk, Arshenic performed all of the songs from their new album Final Collision, that came out on 20.08. The whole show was recorded and two music videos were created: Final Collision and Atari. The idea was to catch the enegry and dynamics of the band performing live but also adding some modifications in post-production process, that will make the video more creative and innovative.
Final Collision is a dark, atmospheric metal song with soft verses and heavy choruses. It has melodic vocals and screams in the bridge. The song is about spiritual awakening and what it brings at the beginning – the senselessness of existence, isolation, and impression of being deceived by all authorities. “They won’t understand” is referring to people who live their life in matrix.
Atari is the only Polish song on the album. Its a humorous auto ironic story about people who decide to live as outsiders. About rebels, who do not want to be a part of the system. It’s an expression of how we feel being seen by other people.
