Boundaries To Release New Album “Burying Brightness” In October, Premiere “Heaven’s Broken Heart” Music Video

Boundaries have signed a new deal with Periphery‘s 3DOT Recordings. The band’s new album, “Burying Brightness,” will be released through the label on October 14.

“Burying Brightness” Track Listing:

01. “It Begins To Speak”
02. “Your Own Murder”
03. “This Is What It’s Like”
04. “Heaven’s Broken Heart”
05. “No One Will Mourn You Here”

09. “–”
10. “It Was Built To Break”
11. “Burying Brightness”
12. “The Tower”

Frontman Matthew McDougal said the following about the album, which features backing vocals from drummer Tim Sullivan and bassist Nathan Calcagno:

“We utilized their voices for the first time. There’s definitely a new dynamic. We focused on writing some choruses. We made it a little prettier and calmer, changing up the listening experience. We wanted to use all of the tools we have at our disposal on this record. We didn’t leave anything out.”

Guitarist Corey Emond added:

“Our goal is to write exactly the kinds of songs we want to with no barriers. I feel like we did that. We’ve always wanted to have songs with singing, but we were never able to capture it until now. We also have some of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written. It has both extremes.”

An official music video for the effort’s first single, “Heaven’s Broken Heart,” can be found below. McDougal added the following about that:

“‘Heaven’s Broken Heart‘ is one part allegory and one part fantasy. It tells a story of vengeance and punishment from a god that has become too ashamed of life on earth to let it continue. It started as purely a conceptual song and eventually formed into more of a parable on my mood disorders and how suddenly they can surround and darken a person’s world.

The opening line ‘night falls fast’ being a reference to the book of the same name by Kay Redfield Jamison, which details years of research towards understanding how and why we as people commit suicide. Meanwhile lyrics like ‘shale skinned monsters’ make reference to golems and other biblical horrors that are being released on an unknowing populace destined for extinction.”

The Night Flight Orchestra Premiere “Black Stars And Diamonds” Music Video

The Night Flight Orchestra (Soilwork, Arch Enemy, etc.) have premiered a new video for their latest single “Black Stars And Diamonds.” Singer Björn “Speed” Strid commented:

“After our incredible show at ‘Metalfest‘ in Plzen, some of us decided to stay for another day in the heart of Prague. As we had a new gem up our sleeves we couldn’t resist to record a video for it. We therefore spent 8 hours riding at the back of a trailer through Prague while waving with cupped hands and met nothing but smiles and excitement from people in the streets. It was an incredible hot day that turned into a tropical night and this is what came out of it! Enjoy and crank it loud!”

A Wake In Providence Premiere “The Horror Ov The Old Gods” Music Video

A Wake In Providence have premiered a new video for their new song “The Horror Ov The Old Gods.” This track is from the band’s new album “Eternity,” which will be released on October 21.

The group said the following about the upcoming album:

“‘Eternity‘ is the album I’ve wanted to write for years but the time wasn’t right and now it is. This album is extremely personal and close to us for that exact reason. It tackles some serious issues around mental health that I feel don’t get addressed often and need to be through the lens of dark story.

Everything in this album comes directly from experience, such experience that other people should not feel alone in. This is the culmination of all things I have wanted to do from a musical and lyrical standpoint for years and a true testament to patience and perseverance from a time perspective.

I’m so excited for this chapter of AWIP with Unique Leader on our side, and want to say thank you to everyone for being patient with us on this journey! We Are Eternity.”

The other is a track that kicks ass and will be an absolute banger of an opener for future tours! We loved it so much that we named our tour after it! ‘Ctrl + Alt + Del‘. Enjoy!
