Dark Station debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Ryse‘ Friday.  The song is the fifth single from the band’s debut album Down in the Dark.  The single and video were preceded by the debut of four of the album’s other singles, ‘Heroes,’ ‘Obvious,’, ‘No Life,’ and ‘Villain.’

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Ryse’ leans to an industrial metal style breakdown in its opening bars, that lends itself to comparisons to works from the likes of Fear Factory, Crossbreed and Static-X.  That same sound is used in the song’s chorus sections and rounds out the song in its finale while the rest of the song boasts more of a pure melodic hard rock sound.  The balance of those two distinctly different styles works well here, with the end result being just one of many high points of Down in the Dark‘s musical side.

The song’s lyrical theme is meant to deliver a statement about unity in difficult times, according to a statement from front man Nathan Spades.

“Ryse is about coming together as a group and standing up for what’s right,” he said. “It’s about the power of the unified voice of the people”

Guitarist Kyle Ort expanded on Spades’ comments with his own statement.

“We wrote this song over a year ago, but we decided to create a video for it because we feel like it fits perfectly with all of the turmoil of 2020,” said Ort.

‘Ryse’ is available to stream and download here.
