Dutch Blackened Death Metal band ONHEIL unleashes their new song and video for “Like Shadows In The Night”. This single is the second raging track from their upcoming album “In Black Ashes” and is out on all digital platforms. The full album will be released on the 23rd of June by Swedish label BLACK LION RECORDS.
The new single is accompanied by an Animated Lyric Video based on multiple pieces of album artwork and, with the inclusion of the lyrics, gives extra attention to the harsh subject of the song.
Vocalist/Guitarist Amok says this about the lyrics: “ ‘Like Shadows In The Night’ describes the worthlessness of living beings when they are enslaved as part of modern slavery, with no escape to get freed from their suppressors. It’s about entrapment, may it literally in a cage or by the many claws of society. which often ends up in death and sorrow.
It’s great to give extra focus to these lyrics with this killer animated video. ONHEIL is a band that likes to take a bird’s eye view and hold up a mirror to humanity to show them what they really are. Yes… and sometimes the truth is ugly.”
The lyric video, single and album artwork was created by artist Lordigan Pedro Seno, who worked before with bands and artists like Amon Amarth, Kreator, Decapitated and Matt Heafy (Trivium). The animation is done by Cloud Music Typography, who has done videos before for Arch Enemy, The Haunted, Mayhem, Napalm Death, Naglfar, Dark Fortress and Archspire. ‘In Black Ashes’ is ONHEIL’s third full-length album, which is set to be released on the 23rd of June by Swedish BLACK LION RECORDS. The album is mixed and mastered by legendary producer Dan Swanö at the Unisound Studios (Dissection, Opeth, Dark Funeral, Bloodbath, Marduk, Insomnium), vocals and drums recorded by Jonathan Merrelaar at the Red Pack Studios (Picture), and guitar recordings were assisted by Bart Hennephof (ex-Textures.) at the Creative Music Lab.
