North Carolina, sci-fi metallers Xael are excited to bring you the huge production that is the video for "Srai (The Demon of Erring)" off of their debut album The Last Arbiter. The album combines elements of extreme metal with orchestrations and folk music which creates a sound you've never ever heard before. Xael's music focuses on the endeavors of its members in a science fantasy epic. This odd and interesting picture is complete with the wasteland of war torn planets and the pits of fallen gods.
Lead guitarist Nassaru explains the video's elaborate story, "Srai is poetically seen as a demon, but is a captured ancient entity that has a dismal past with the protagonist being that there is lore that predates this album's story line. In an attempt to kill the main character, it was captured and bound by technology using a quantum field. It hungers to kill the wayfarer, but being immortal makes that difficult as one can presume. But there is a problem with the wayfarer's immortality as he suffers from an odd illness poetically called 'soul sickness,' where he loses consciousness and it is during this episode that his immortality is suppressed. Srai seizes this moment to sit upon the wayfarer's chest to steal his last breath. In this song you can see the relationship with 'sleep paralysis' and how it ties into the lore."
