France based, modern metal band DISCONNECTED has released the official music video for their new single , “King of the World”. Directed by Laurent Hart (with production by Antoine de Montremy) and filmed in Troyes, France, “King of the World” features the full band performing the song in the huge Espace Argence Hall. It also includes the acting performance of Joseph de Gabriel representing the “King of the World”.
“King of the World was recorded at Studio Caverne (Paris, France), and Jelly Cardarelli’s studio (Darvault, France), with mixing and mastering by Jelly Cardarelli and Symheris.
“This song definitely explores a theme that everybody can relate to. We’ve all met once in our lives this motherf¨¨r, this person that deeply thinks they’re better than you, this person that has a power over you. This song is for all of those who think that they are stuck in that inferior position to another, this song is like a scream in a silent night of submission. There’s always a way to overcome despair. If you dare to try, maybe the fear will change sides. Once again it’s about self-respect, and believing in your own strength.
‘King of the World,’ wherever you are, whoever you might be, there’s a storm coming for you!” – DISCONNECTED
