I’m a big fan of symphonic metal – I love the full, rich sound and I think of all forms of music – metal lends itself best to orchestration. Enter German metal slingers Beyond The Black – rocking it out since 2014 – the band just recently released a new album titled Horizons – and from that album, they have just released a new video for the track Human – and it’s damn good!
From the press release:
“Human” features an almost daunting glimpse at the future, but also symbolizes the sophistication of another modern and equally gloomy melodic rock piece. Their new single is a flagship example of bittersweet yet strong melodies merging with dystopian narratives. Delicate guitar lines blend with Jennifer Haben’s remarkable, strong voice and ascend to a powerful epos of self-autonomy. Along with an artful, suspenseful and reflective music video, BEYOND THE BLACK take their audience on a journey through the range between melodic mellifluousness and uncompromising energetic rock fragments.
The symphonic combo questions the essence of life and immerses the audiovisual in a gritty atmosphere of the fabled beginning of mankind. Convince yourself with their freshly released full-length Hørizøns – proving that the quintet is remaining and re-inventing themselves at the same time!”
Horizons is out now via Napalm Records – and if you dug what you just heard – CLICK HERE and go pick up the album.
