Like a pair of film noir anti-heroes, The Black Opera don evening attire to celebrate the release of Libretto: Of King Legend with the release of the visual interpretation of “Balcony”.
“Sometimes people choose to mask themselves with character.”
The text that prefaces Andy Madeleine’s visuals for The Black Opera’s “Balcony,” could be read as a double entendre. The Black Opera is choosing to mask themselves with the TBO mythology as a way to reintroduce the raw back into the game while at the same time, the larger-than-life corny personas The Opera roasts in the songs lyrics are masking themselves in an absurd character – perpetuating as real. After hovering over the game like a phantom menace, The Black Opera finally arrives with it’s electrified boom-bap and layered message. Libretto: Of King Legend is available now.
