Hannes Grossmann, best known for his drumming in bands like Necrophagist, Obscura and Alkaloid, has released a music video for new single, "The Sun Eaters." The track appears on Grossmann's new studio album, To Where the Light Retreats, which arrives on June 1.

The new video can be viewed here:

Grossmann comments: "I am beyond thrilled to present the first song off my new album. It took a lot of work writing, recording and mixing it, but the effort paid off eventually. As a solo artist I aim to create fresh ideas which at the same time carry the spirit of a sound I started with Obscura back in 2009. But the most important thing for me is having fun with it. On this song and also on the rest of the album, I had some help from my very talented Alkaloid bandmates. It's mind-boggling how Danny Tunker (Alkaloid guitarist) recreated the guitar solo I wrote almost note-by-note without even a sweat."
