Unleash the Archers - "Soulbound" (video)

"Abyss" τιτλοφορείται το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Unleash the Archers που θα κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του καλοκαιριού. Πρόκειται για τον πέμπτο "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο των Καναδών metallers, οι οποίοι δημιουργήθηκαν το 2007 και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«Vancouver, Canada based Unleash The Archers span the gap between various forms of metal, with genre-blending as their speciality, the resulting product is a potent mix of intelligent song-writing and technically versatile musicianship.

Guttural screams likened to blackened death combined with the soaring wails of a four-octave mezzo-soprano in power-metal style have created a sound unlike anything else in the industry.

By weaving the aggression of the more extreme genres into the intricacies of traditional heavy metal, this diversity has allowed Unleash The Archers the opportunity to share the stage with bands of every ilk, from folk metal to power metal to death metal and beyond.»

Όσον αφορά το νέο τους δισκογραφικό πόνημα θα κυκλοφορήσει σε cd, διπλό βινύλιο και σε μία έκδοση διπλού cd συν ένα επτάρι βινύλιο. Το πρώτο cd θα περιλαμβάνει τα δέκα τραγούδια του δίσκου συν δύο bonus, το δεύτερο τα δέκα τραγούδια του δίσκου instrumental και το επτάρι τα (bonus) μουσικά κομμάτια "Abysswave" - "Soulcoustic".

Το εξώφυλλο (Κι όλο το artwork) επιμελήθηκε ο Adam Burke, ο οποίος έχει φιλοτεχνήσει εξώφυλλα δίσκων από μπάντες όπως οι: Angel Witch ("Angel of Light"), Eternal Champion ("The Armor of Ire"), Black Sites ("Exile"), Idle Hands ("Mana"), Lady Beast ("The Vulture's Amulet"), Lunar Shadow ("The Smokeless Fires"), Pagan Altar ("The Room of Shadows"), Professor Emeritus ("Take Me to the Gallows") κλπ.

Brittney Slayes (says about "Soulbound"): «This song is what we call a 'quick-banger' in the UTA camp. It's short, fast, catchy, and never lets up. We always have one of these on every record; the kind of song that makes you want to turn the dial up to 11, maybe drive a little faster, perhaps even stand up and headbang by yourself in the middle of the room. This track re-introduces the four sons of The Matriarch as enslaved, unstoppable, half-dead beings that won't give up until The Immortal is destroyed, and we feel like it can stand on its own while not giving too many of the album's secrets away... Get out your air-guitars 'cause this one is blistering!"

The video was shot by Runegate Studios in Victoria BC, Canada and uses two very different environments to differentiate between the world of the living, and the world of the 'Soulbound'. The bright, white, indoor scenes portray a reality much like our own, while the dark, rain-soaked, outdoor scenes take the viewer to a visually stunning reality that will give you goosebumps and make your skin crawl! In this dismal place, The Matriarch has complete control over the Soulbound, and she can compel them there whenever she desires, no matter how hard they may resist.»

  1. Σύμφωνα με στατιστικά που έβγαλα απευθείας απ τον πάτο μου, το 47% των "καλών" τραγουδιών τους ξεκινάνε με κραυγή γιατί έτσι!
