Icelanders Ring Of Gyges presents the first single and video for “Parasite”, from their forthcoming studio album “Metamorphosis”. Watch the video below.
An amazingly vivid and beautifully thought-provoking piece of art, which will make fans of bands like Leprous, Port Noir and Haken thrilled.
Ring Of Gyges about the video:
“We spent a very cold couple of days out in the breathtaking landscapes and adorable little villages of South-Western Iceland with our fantastic director Gaui and a fantastic cast of actors, creating the video for our latest single Parasite. Fun fact: one of the scenes is filmed inside the home of the local sheriff in Guðjóns hometown. We hope you enjoy it at least half as much as we enjoyed making it, although Gísli has insisted on a warmer location for the next shoot”.
“Metamorphosis” will be released via ViciSolum Productions on May 19th, 2023, via Vicisolum Productions.

Ring Of Gyges is a young and progressive metal band from Reykjavík, Iceland. With intriguing and odd rhythmic patterns, a fresh set of eyes on the 70s version of prog rock – and an ability to transfer this to the modern age prog metal, Ring Of Gyges is combining several worlds of music in their approach towards prog perfection.
Although Ring Of Gyges is heavily inspired by the progressive rock bands of the 70s, their sound is much more metal-oriented and draws influences from progressive bands of the modern age, like Leprous, Haken and alike. They strive to create epic and grandiose music with unconventional song structures and vast soundscapes, often accompanied by philosophical lyrics.
Their first LP, “Beyond the Night Sky”, was released in 2017 to critical acclaim. Critics praised the ambition and varied style of the debut album, which included several guest performances including a choir, a string quartet, saxophone, flute, and clarinet.
