AAA just released a video for SAS' song "Nandi":" rel="nofollow -

According to AAA's statement on their Facebook page: 
"Within the video, we narrate our version of Plato's allegory of the cave: What you see in the materialistic world is merely an image - bodies, faces and names, that appear for a short time in flesh, yet with death and destruction very soon dissolve and disappear again. [...]"

The full version of the song (contained in the album) features a guest solo by HAKEN's Richard Henshall.
