The Texas-based extreme progressive/power metal group IMMORTAL GUARDIAN have been described as “seriously epic” (MetalSucks), so it’s only fitting that the group’s new music video for their song “Stardust” fits that same description. A riveting, special effects-laden five-minute hybrid of an “Armageddon”-like action movie and a telenovela, the clip can be seen below.
Featuring special effects by the Russian VFX company Great Heights Design (Witherfall, Nightrage, Noctem), “Stardust” was filmed last year on location in the West Texas desert. It stars vocalist Carlos Zema and Brazilian actress Bella Carrijo, a childhood friend who has starred in several independent films and Netflix original series. The on-set chemistry between the two was genuine, as just six months after the video was filmed, the pair were married.
On camera, however, IMMORTAL GUARDIAN were determined to avoid traditional cliches and make a music video to remember. To that end, the group – founded by Gabriel Guardian, whose uncanny ability to play guitar and keyboard simultaneously has been showcased on MTV and during a recent guest stint on tour with Powerglove – takes the viewer on an intense roller coaster that spans from the desert to outer space, with an ending twist that leaves the viewer suspended in disbelief.
