Iconic vocalist Lance King – the original voice behind Pyramaze, Avian, Balance of Power and Gemini has released a new video, ‘Reaction Formation’, from his second solo album, “ReProgram,” released last week via his own Nightmare Records.
With ‘Reaction Formation’, Lance King has delivered a visually-immersive video that perfectly complements his powerful progressive metal style and thought-provoking lyrics.
King says of the song’s video and message: “It’s an animated visual upload, representing the idea that people often do the opposite of what they truly want because of their fear of others’ reactions, which is a learned coping mechanism that many don’t realize they have. It generally manifests from very judgmental elders growing up, programming a person’s desire for others constant approval. Wearing this mask. does not allow a person to be authentic, even to themselves. It puts them on a repetitious cycle that will sabotage their dreams and relationships and ultimately their joys in life, resulting many times in depression and a fatalistic perception of the world. The single most powerful thing you can do is unlearn the limiting beliefs you have accepted as truths in your youth. This frees you from the chains that bind, the chains of the subconscious mind.”
