Up-and-coming power metal outfit Battle Born will release its debut album this spring, and in anticipation of its release, debuted the record’s lead single this week along with a companion video.
The band’s new album, Blood, Fire, Magic, and Steel is scheduled for release May 12 through Prosthetic Records. In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the record’s lead single, ‘Blood and Fire‘ Wednesday, along with the song’s video.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Blood and Fire’ is a work that is sure to appeal to a wide range of metal fans. That is because it blends elements of the new wave of British Heavy Metal a la Judas Priest and Saxon with more modern power/speed metal in the vein of Dragonforce in a way to balances those influences so expertly.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the information about the new album, single and video. In listening to the song, it seems to have clear fantasy roots. That is just this critic’s interpretation.
The video that accompanies the song adds to that inference. That is due to the clear story of a knight battling his foes as the band, semi-bathed in blood, performs its single against a wall of what looks like a castle. That even more hints at the fantasy nature of the song’s lyrica ltheme.
‘Blood and Fire’ is one of 11 tracks that make up the body of Battle Born’s new forthcoming album. The record’s track listing is noted below.
