The norwegian melodic metal band NERGARD releases music video for the

was filmed at this years edition of Trondheim Metal Fest where the
band was fronted by the amazing Andi Kravljaca (Aeon Zen, Thaurorod).

"The song A Bit Closer To Heaven is the very climax of my two albums.
Both albums is a part of a two act metal opera and deals with the
story of an unfortunate man that is sentenced to twenty years in
prison for a crime which he did not commit. Upon his release he finds
out that his wife and child has died. Blinded with grief he eventually
commits suicide. This song is set to the place in the story where this
man realises that his way out of the misery and to be reunited with
his family is by committing suicide."
