EMPRESS present new video single Eventide

Album Fateweaver coming August 19th / Pre-Order Now

In the course of the difficult last couple of years, many songs about loss and grief have been sung – the collective sorrow we all went through weighed heavy on our hearts, and affected our thoughts and actions. In any event, time has again proven music to be the one thing we all equally connect to, providing a meaningful foundation for everyone to emotionally rely on.

With their latest single Eventide, American five-piece Empress once again showcase their strengths: the symphonic power metal outfit manages to combine evocative lyrics and profound feelings with heavy instrumentals and spellbinding vocals. Singer Barbara Blackthorne’s performance enhances the sentimental value of the piece, which came together quite organically: “This song was written during the height of the pandemic, where loss and grief were heavy on everyone’s minds”, the band says. “Vlad presented the intro riff and chorus melody, and it instantly struck an emotional chord with the rest of the members. It didn’t take long for the full song to form, and not long after its completion it had cemented its place as a very special song in the Empress catalogue.”

The brand new music video for Eventide adds to the overall picture in the most touching of ways by telling the story of a beloved gone too soon and the eternal bond between two souls:
