SIX FEET UNDER MV (6 min)
Directed by Jewel Rhea Lasrado



Six feet under is a soft and slow rock song that revolves around the concept of guilt transcending mortality. It is from the perspective of a person who is on his deathbed and regretting his mistakes and things he could have done right in his life. I got inspired by Vito Corleone from the Godfather. While he was a ruthless and calculating man, he had the traits of a loyal and loving character which made him a contradiction in the Godfather. I imagined him to have been a person who regrets mistakes from his past but who is too iron willed and pompous to admit have done those mistakes as long as he walked this earth. This guilty nature has been a core concept in the song and helped me to understand the human traits associated with a character like his.

SIDUS TAURUS: ZIEGEIST MV (5 min)
Directed by Viktoria Yudina, Alexander Perkov



We tend to forget about important and eternal things in times hostility and manmade horror.
This video is dedicated to benevolence, compassion and love.

We want to say that constructive energy is more powerful and sustainable than destructive and militant reality. And against the odds man still returns to everlasting values.

We believe that human nature aims exactly on this.
