Independent hard rock band Ashes to Omens debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend.
The band debuted the lyric video for its single ‘War Cry’ Friday. The video places the song’s lyrics over footage of military combat and military veterans on the battlefield and back in non-combat settings. The veterans hold signs that remind listeners they could have become another statistic.
The whole of the video’s visuals is meant to illustrate the song’s message, which according to the band focuses on military veterans’ attempts to return to “normal life” after combat.
“‘War Cry’ is about bringing awareness to depression, PTSD, anxiety, mental illness and suicide prevention,” the band said in a prepared statement about the song. “It’s about staying strong when you can’t be and knowing that you’re not alone and that you don’t have to suffer in silence.”
The musical arrangement featured in the song exhibits comparisons to works from Creed at some points and to other much heavier melodic rock acts at other points. The juxtaposition of those influences makes the song just as interesting musically as it is lyrically.
‘War Cry’ is available to download and stream here.
The debut of Ashes To Omens’ new single comes six months after the band debuted its then latest single, a cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick in the Wall.’
