Finland's Myon brings the danger and adrenaline back to rock with their new single and video 'Call Of The Senses'.
"The song is a story about extreme adrenaline search, so we needed a video that really shows all about what experiencing the extremes can be," says the band's leader Mika Pohjola. The video features Hustler's cover model Kimberly Knox, a.k.a. Veera Julia Ikkala, who is also building a career as a singer.

She has also directed the video. "When I heard 'Call Of The Senses' for the first time and was asked to act in the video, my decision was an immediate "YES!"
"This is because, personally the song touches me deeply and for me it is easy to relate to adrenaline seeking behaviour. To me life has always been about the extremes. Truly feeling each moment and following my instincts, for better and worse. I started to then build a clear picture in my mind about how to bring this across to our viewers and ended up directing the video myself, for I had a distinct vision that I wished to show the audience: Living life to the extreme... Really feeling the adrenaline and life to the maximum in certain moments. Be it for good or bad.
"Evidently such lifestyle takes its toll, in a way or another. To some it can be worth it, to some it is not. But my point was not to moralize or judge, only to show what such moments and lifestyle of extremes may be." Says Kimberly Knox about the theme of the video.
Tragically on 18th of December 2011, Niko Vainikainen, who can be seen in some scenes in the video died in as extreme way as he lived. We want to respect his memory with this video as well. For he truly was a person of extremes and lived his life to the fullest, following the call of his senses.
'Call Of The Senses' single and video, will be released digitally on 1st January 2012 and proves once again that Myon is taking music to a new direction and brings rock to the new era of 2012. Vitalworks era has began.
