Intro is the opening track of The Ghibertins’ forthcoming concept album “The Life & Death Of John Doe”. John Doe is a term used when the real name of a person is unknown or is being intentionally concealed. As much as we try to leave a legacy, a sign of our passage on earth, no one will remember us in 200 years. We are all passing through this world, we are all forgettable, we are all John Doe. Nevertheless, the life of each of us is unique and worth telling.The idea behind The Ghibertins' album is that there is one song for every decade of the protagonist’s life; from his conception to his afterlife. ‘Intro' begins this unique journey that will allow us to see the fall and the redemption of the main character, putting pen to paper all of the band’s hopes and fears. In the video the protagonist gets created and subsequently abandoned by the violent and abusive father, the prelude to his fall in disgrace. MORE
