“Those Three Words I Never Said” is the main theme around the brand new video from Dutch based metallers Undawn, which is taken from their the critically acclaimed release “Justice Is…”. Those three words we often realize too late, they were never said or not said often enough. Three words captured in one single word through this song ‘Forever’.
The video deals with the impact of losing a loved one and how life, all too often taken for granted, takes an unimaginable and irreversible turn. Along to the rhythm of this track, becoming increasingly heavier and more powerful until it reaches its climax with a tempestuous guitar solo, the scenery depicts the storm of emotions and level of devastation while coming to terms with one´s loss and the realization that things will never be as they once were or could have been …. and the words which were never said. Three simple words, often condemned as sounding cheesy or a cliché and possibly not deemed to be a theme for a metal band to address …. until disaster strikes and one realizes how important certain people were in one’s life, how one’s life was bound to that of the other, blaming oneself over and over again for having missed all those opportunities …. wishing for one more opportunity to be able to express these three simple words.
Undawn is taking this opportunity with this song and with this personal statement: ‘’Forever is an ode to our parents, who we love and respect until the end of time. We realize that one day we will have to go on without you, but you will stay in our hearts forever. It is our way of saying: We love you!”
‘Forever’ is the 2nd video taken from Undawn´s latest album “Justice is …”, which was released a little bit less than a year ago, on which they are more dynamic, more aggressive and sound more powerful than ever before. The album is a musical reflection of how the band, from their personal experience, takes in today’s society with all its contradictions.
