Bundle up everyone, because Brymir is here with their chilly new single "Herald Of Aegir." It's everything you could possibly want out of a melodic death metal song – memorable melodies, huge choruses, fantastic musicianship, and that Finnish chill in the air.
"Even in the darkest times of despair, the songs and sounds we cherish can help us light our way through the night," said vocalist Viktor Gullichsen. "For us, writing the album Voices In The Sky served this purpose during the past trying years. It let us imagine how it would feel to be back on the road, touring alongside our friends and our idols. As performing live is one of our driving forces, we eventually began to feel powerless without being able to do it.
"This is especially apparent in the lyrics for the title track. It is a song about ambition forged in frustration and longing. About a desire for the validation an artist so often needs to fuel the endless pursuit of expression and accomplishment – especially the kind of validation we only can find in club full of roaring metalheads, reacting to our music. Even many other songs tell of travel, discovery and conquest. I wonder why…
"Now that our newest creation is finally fully formed and ready to launch, we are beyond excited to head out on the most epic and ambitious chapter yet in Brymir's 15 year history. See you on tour!"
Voices In The Sky is out August 26. Pre-orders are available here.
