In March 2020, the majority of the world population where required by law to self-isolate and comply with social distancing rules due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unlike in other countries, the Swiss were allowed to go out to get some fresh air and exercise, but in like most countries social distancing of 2 meters was required and gatherings of only five people were permitted.
In compliance with all the WHO guidelines and local swiss rules, the band “HOLY FIELD” produced and released their first promotional single “N.E.W. METAL” for free.
On May the 11th 2020, which became a highly symbolic date for the Swiss people because the Federal Council decided to ease further the measures introduced to protect the population against the coronavirus.
It is also on that symbolic date that “HOLY FIELD” released “N.E.W. METAL”, against all the odds and with the sheer passion for their music, the Band succeed in creating an original piece of visual content filmed in the stunning Swiss landscape.
It is critical to state that “HOLY FIELD – N.E.W. METAL” became one of the worlds best music videos filmed and produced during the pandemic.
