Soul Enema premiers a post-apocalyptic video for "Aral Sea I - Feeding Hand"

Israeli Prog band Soul Enema premiers a new video for "Feeding Hand", taken from the brand new album "Of Clans and Clones and Clowns". The video completes the Aral Sea trilogy and finally all three parts can be seen as one united visual concept. "Of Clans and Clones and Clowns" was released on June 23 2017. Featuring 73 minutes of music, prime international guests, which include Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon,  Star One, et al), Yossi Sassi (Orphaned Land, solo), and mixed by the legendary Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Paradise Lost, etc.).
Songwriter, producer and keyboard player Constantin Glantz comments:
"Feeding Hand" is  probably the most hardcore one to watch, serving as a realistic greeting from the post-Apocalyptic world. Sadly, it's not some fantasy blockbuster - this world that exists now, as we speak. "Welcome to the rebirth, Rebirth Island" - goes the line from the song. Here's a bit of background - this video brings you the actual footage from what was the world's biggest biological weapons testing facility, a secret city Aralsk-7, located on the former Rebirth Island (slightly ironic name at this point). The former island was a part of the Aral Sea, now a part of the new Aralkum Desert. The bio-weapon tests were performed on different animals, such as monkeys and horses. Plague, anthrax and other kinds of viruses were tested there since 1954, sometimes via open air spraying, causing serious leaks. Even in the late 1980's, the times of economic crisis, shortage of mass consumption products and foreign currency, the bio-weapon industry was still held in high priority. The Soviet Ministry of Defense kept importing African monkeys to infect them, explore their illness and put them to death in the very building that you see towards the end of the "Feeding Hand" part. Around the year 1992 the Soviet Union crumbled, everything was aborted, abandoned and left to rust in the midst of the shrinking, dying sea. The developments since then show that there is no chance for any significant revival of the Aral Sea. If it's possible to imagine the most grotesque memorial in existence, the former Rebirth Island might be just that."
