Brazilian powerhouse Eminence have today released their evocative and beautifully shot music video for “Into The Ashes“. “Into The Ashes” is the band’s fourth single taken from their upcoming album “Dark Echoes” (out on May 28th, 2021 via Blood Blast Distribution). Watch it below.
Speaking on the track, guitarist Alan Wallace comments: “The lyrics for “Into The Ashes” speak of something that we wanted to get back as soon as possible, which is normal life. Unfortunately here in Brazil, we cannot have that, at least for now. So, for the video concept, we didn’t want to show the band and instead put in contemporary dance, with the participation of Débora Roots, dancer of Grupo o Corpo. We have been in a pandemic for over a year and there is this feeling of not being able to have a normal life. Because of all of this change on the planet, we wish to have our lives back in a better and simpler way like how things were before.”
The band has most recently released their single “Wake Up The Blind” on Earth Day, which speaks to the damage humanity inflicts upon the environment. Before that, Eminence has dropped videos for “BYOG” and crushing track “Dark Echoes” featuring Björn Strid of Soilwork.
Produced by Alan Wallace and mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, Heaven Shall Burn, Suicide Silence), the “Dark Echoes” album consists of twelve solidly crafted songs speaking to themes of resisting bigotry, frustration, and perseverance. “Dark Echoes” will be released on Friday, May 28, 2021.
