Italian Alt/Prog Metal Band FROZEN SAND Release Official Videoclip For “The Aftertaste”

After 5 years from our latest album, we are finally proud to release our brand-new single: “The Aftertaste”!
 
It’s really been an infinite work, starting from a music idea created by guitarist Mattia “The Skeptic”, back in 2018. We changed the first draft many times in the following months, at the end turning it into a yet melodic and catchy but also harsh and powerful prog-rock song. For such reason, we decided to release this very song, “The Aftertaste”, as the first official single of our new upcoming album, Fractals: a Light among Shadows.
 
“The Aftertaste” talks about the passing of time, through the eyes of a worn-out, broken man who looks back at his life and tries to get the meaning of it. As he goes back through time in his mind, seasons such as “spring” and “autumn” metaphorically represent “youth” and “adulthood” respectively, as he is now approaching the “winter” of his life. But, unlike it happened too often in the past, this time something is different: he is now wiser, stronger and with much more self-consciousness that he is ready to face head-on whatever comes.

“The Aftertaste” – Lyrics:I lived my youth in search of the perfection of it all
Only black or white, the sunset and the dawn
Then spring passed by and I had to learn the lesson the hardest way
Compromised desire for every shade of gray

Men struggle to live
The raven won’t fly away
It’s easier to see
Lights in the shadow of day

Struggle to live
The raven won’t fly away
It’s easier to see
Lights in the shadow of…
In the shadow of the day

Lights go out, the curtain falls
Savor calm after the storm
Lost for endless Time
But now I’m coming home

All my wounds are cauterized
But the aftertaste resides
Dead inside for years
But here I’m back alive
Once more…

I spent my adulthood regretting days I lived before
I would have sold my soul to have them back once more
Autumn passed by and, regretting the regrets, I learned too late
To apprehend my life and seize the while today

Lights go out, the curtain falls
Savor calm after the storm
Lost for endless Time
But now I’m coming home

All my wounds are cauterized
But the aftertaste resides
Dead inside for years
But here I’m back alive
Once more…

Older and wiser I stand here today
But stronger than ever before
Sensing this sour bittersweet aftertaste
Within my bones

Tired of these fights and tired of the pain
I let my shell fall to the floor
With wide open arms I accept my own fate
And let it flow beyond
