CHRYSILIA: Release New Video.

Added 27 February 2018, 11:01 PM

CHRYSILIA, are excited to release a new video out of the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Et in Arcadia Ego’ (2017, Lion Music). The title for the new video is ‘By The Gates of Ypsus’ and it was filmed last December in Athens, during Chrysilia’s latest live performance.

Following the concept of the album, combining ancient Greek mythology and the notion of Arcadia as the Utopia of the European Age of Enlightenment (18th century), ‘By the Gates of Ypsus’ refers to the location of Ypsus, a landmark next to the river Lucius of Ancient Arcadia where, according to the myth, the nymphs used to bathe the god Zeus.

Written by Elias Pero, Kostas Pilalis and Chryso, it was arranged and produced by Chrysilia and Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Outloud etc.) while all backing vocals and choirs where performed by Voice Box under the guidance of Margarita Papadimitriou. ‘By The Gates of Ypsus’  was directed by John Kaimakamis and the Nightwatchers, filmed by Stelios Skalkos, Thomas Tsionis and John Kaimakamis.

You can watch ‘By The Gates of Ypsus’ here:

Chrysilia is a soundtrack/symphonic/folk metal band based in Athens, Greece. Initially a concept child by musical actress & rock performer Chryso and composer/keyboardist Elias Pero (ex-Sovereign), this quickly evolved to the formation of a band consisting of ambitious, as well as experienced members. Chrysilia has evolved in recent years from a concept to a band with a full album, ready to demonstrate their work live. Producer Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Serious Black, Outloud) has played a pivotal role in this. He believed in this elegant but also dynamic amalgam of folk, soundtrack & metal and gave life to Chrysilia’s compositions, and he also composed one of the album’s songs. Debut album ‘Et In Arcadia Ego’ was released on October 12, 2017 via Lion Music Record Label.
