SHADOW OF INTENT, one of the most innovative and revered bands to emerge from the metal world in recent years, have released brand new stand alone single, “The Migrant” . Watch the stunning accompanying music video for the track, below.
Commenting on the bands latest creative output, vocalist Ben Duerr shares: “SHADOW OF INTENT has always been about experimenting and expressing creativity freely, and making sure to have fun with it. With this song we’ve continued to do just that, reaching back to our roots and breaking some rules along the way, we made something we think you will definitely enjoy. To our oldest fans, and of course the new, The Migrant.”
The new single follows the release of SHADOW OF INTENT‘s 2022’s full length album, the critically acclaimed ‘Elegy’ which spawned singles “Of Fury”, “Intensified Genocide”, “Where Millions Have Come to Die”, “From Ruin… We Rise”, “Blood In The Sands Of Time” and killer live video for “Saurian King”.
Since their formation in 2014, SHADOW OF INTENT have garnered a reputation for crafting mind-blowingly technical, prog tinged symphonic deathcore. Widely acknowledged as one of the forerunners of the current deathcore renaissance, the band’s debut album ‘Primordial’ was named as one of Revolver Magazine‘s ’15 Essential Deathcore Albums’, with Metal Sucks giving their 2019 album ‘Melancholy’ a perfect 5/5 review, stating “you can expect Shadow of Intent to send echoes across metal for as long as they feel like making music”. To date, they have clocked up 100 million streams, 42 million YouTube Views and have 229k monthly listeners on Spotify.
