Italian heavy metallers Scala Mercalli have now finished mixing their new album Indipendence at Alpha Omega Studios with Alex Azzali. The Album is set to be released on January 25th. Today the band unleashes a new video for the track Be Strong – watch it below!

The song is an encouragement in trying to find strength in all circumstances, fighting for one’s own dreams and ideals, without being overcome by the everyday difficulties of life that can sometimes be very hard and heavy.

Stated the band of the song: “Being strong doesn’t mean never falling down, but finding the strength to always get up and move forward. May this song help you all, Metalheads!”

Indipendence will be about the first part of the Italian Risorgimento, from Naples’ reign by King Murat until Mazzini’s Roman Republic, including episodes on Mille (The Expedition of the Thousand) and Brigandage, with some of their main characters. The band will wear new uniforms inspired by the units, from north to south, that in the above-mentioned period fought side by side with the people and contributed hard sacrifice to build a unified Italian nation.

The band comments further about Indipendence:“This project is about some events we consider of great importance in our country’s history, because they remind us of how important it has been, for a people dominated for years by foreign powers, to fight for ideals of unity and freedom, and reminds also that freedom, in every form, is never a gift but has always to be conquered fighting together. Yesterday as today!”

This example applies to every people or nation that wants to be truly free!
