Video editing by: Ryan Kurnia Pratama
Short Presentation of the Video Concept :
The concept of this video is a depiction of the Day of Wrath, in which there are shocks in the video and elements of fire, and ashes. In this video there is also The grim reaper on the part as a judge on the day of judgment as conveyed in the sentence "Quando Judex est venturus" (when the judge).
Regarding color, this video broadly highlights the color Purple which means majesty and repentance from sin as depicted in the purple fire element at the beginning of the song, the singer costumes, and the purple light in the Pie Jesu part, where this section tells about asking for God's help and forgiveness of sins. This video is also supported by supporting colors such as red which symbolizes fire, gold as a symbol of majesty and holiness, and black as a symbol of darkness. On the last part of the video, it gets more intense and peaks until the end of the song there is an explosion and turns into ashes as conveyed in the sentence Solvet sæclum in favilla which means the world will dissolve in ashes.
