Canadian power metal outfit Lycanthro have unleashed a very Arthur Miller inspired video for the lead single off their newest album Mark of the Wolf, "Crucible." As with all things Lycanthro, they manage to encapsulate a solid classic heavy metal sound whilst keeping it fresh and new. "Crucible," and the entirety of Mark of the Wolf, is packed with soaring vocals, killer guitar riffs and solos, pounding bass lines and thunderous drums.
Vocalist and guitarist James Delbridge explains in further detail: "I wrote this song back when I was in high school; I actually wrote the lyrics of this song while I was in English class instead of doing my school work. The story of 'The Crucible' really fascinated me and I felt as though it would translate perfectly into a metal song. There are also references to other witchcraft stories such as William Shakespeare's Macbeth. In terms of the music, I was aiming for a kind of a Judas Priest meets Death vibe and I think that got pulled off on this track."
