North American Symphonic Metal revivalists SHIELD OF WINGS have shared the next single, “Mind of Myth” from their upcoming debut full-length album, Unfinished, set to release February 11th. Sure to appeal to fans of symphonic metal giants NIGHTWISH and EPICA, as well as film score composers like HANS ZIMMER, JAMES HORNER, and HOWARD SHORE, their new album, Unfinished, will bring into view 10 bombastic compositions of poetic exploration.
Keyboardist/Vocalist Aliyah Daye comments on the visuals in the video for “Mind of Myth”
‘’Since this song is partly about paying homage to our pasts, whether personal or historical, we wanted to bring a somewhat mythical feel to the lyric video. On a windy and brisk mid-December day, we set out on a path to tell this story. We hope you will enjoy walking it with us.”
Each song from Unfinished explores themes of growth through self-examination, regret, sacrificial death and rebirth. From the “Crushing Hail” of the suffering which is inherent in life, the listener is carried through this journey, until the final track expounds upon the realization that we are all, in ways, “The Scarred Clay Reshaping.” With bold, vast orchestral compositions soaring over chugging guitars, SHIELD OF WINGS makes it abundantly clear that they are Unfinished, in more ways than one.
