Progressive groove metal band Byzantine had one of the best metal albums of 2017 with their Metal Blade Records debut The Cicada Tree. Recently they released a video for the title track which was one of the more melodic efforts from the record.

The video features shots of the band performing with close ups of a wriggling cicada fitting the lyrics describing the creature’s life cycle. Frontman and guitarist Chris Ojeda has stated the lyrics also serve as a metaphor for the band’s life cycle. The video for “The Cicada Tree” can be seen below.
