PERSONAL HADES’ is on the dark and heavy side of Gentle Savage’s repertoire. We feel as natural with old school rock tunes like LOVIN’ AIN’T EASY as we do with these heavier more modern and even slightly progressive tunes. If the King of Hades starts to play electric guitar riffing and torturing souls, it might sound something like this… Personal Hades is a story about mental and spiritual suffering. No help at sight, the narrator walks through the lands of Hades and cries for a rescue. Hades is used as a metaphor for the mindscape existing inside a persons head when he/she is facing deep desperation at it’s worst. The footage used in this music video was filmed at our album release party ‘LIVE AT MAXIM’ and the audio used is the original album master track. Enjoy! Video edited by Kristian KXP www.illu83.com
“YNAMW (You Never Ask Me Why) started out as a funny triplet feel guitar riff with sound effects of whipping and wicked screaming. The first idea was to write a song with the feel of a Clint Eastwood type of a Western movie. While being on a sick leave, vocalist Tornado Bearstone watched The Twilight Saga (accidentally of course). Somehow the idea of superhuman powers, beauty and eternal love appealed to Tornado’s state of mind and a modern Cowboy – Vampire character was born in his imagination. So you can say that the story of You Never Ask Me Why was inspired by the movies.”
”Honey Bunny: the Rock’n Roll Transformation” is an analog animation music video. It takes you on a journey to the underworld. The main character, ’Mr. Bunny’, tumbles down a mysterious hole in the ground ending down to the Underworld. During his falling, he transforms from a regular rabbit into a two leg walking human like Rock’n Roller. Feeling a little dizzy in the head, Mr. Bunny starts his journey in the underworld. He ends up hanging with the bad ass ’Lady Bunny’ who teaches him some moves’n manners. In the end Mr. Bunny has a big decision to make….
Devil gets what he seeks! ‘Run Run Poor Boy’ tells a story about a young man who gets in trouble for his own deeds. To ‘let the demon inside your head’ is a metaphor for the use of free will and choosing wrong. So who’s to blame? The poor boy? The mob? The society?
GENTLE SAVAGE’s first single ’Karelian Magic’, released in April 2019, turned out to be a fairly personal love song with a universal theme; every man that loves a woman knows what it feels like to be under her spell. ’Karelian Magic’ was released with a music video directed by Saku Petteri Perintö from Lumifilms. The video is a modern fast paced brain twister.
