Melodic death metallers Hiraes drop the title track off of their upcoming debut album “Solitary”. Watch the video below.
German melodic death metal demon Hiraes is set to release its first sonic onslaught to the masses with the long-awaited, fearless debut offering “Solitary”, on June 25, 2021 via Napalm Records.
Today, after unleashing their raging first single “Under Fire”, the unit – comprised of members of the disbanded Dawn Of Disease and with the powerful Britta Görtz (Critical Mess, ex-Cripper) on vocals – sets free their second offering and title track “Solitary”, along with an exciting official video. Heavy-driven riffs evoke a dark and explosive melodic death metal storm fueled by a fierce growling attack, dropping jaws and leaving a long-lasting impression.
Hiraes already established its own remarkable identity built upon a smashing vocal attack, intense melodies and charging guitars, led by guitarist Lukas Kerk as main songwriter. An atmospheric, instrumental intro introduces the album opener “Shadows Break”, whilst showcasing the impressive vocal onslaught of seasoned frontwoman Britta Görtz shortly after. “Grain Of Sand” sets the next exclamation mark while delivering an unrelenting attack of smashing riffs along with an inexorable vocal performance, followed by standouts such as brutal “1000 Lights” and razor-sharp “Eyes Over Black”, proving that Hiraes don’t decelerate for a second.
This massive melodic death metal assault leaves no scope for weakness and serves as an exciting take on the genre with hymnlike melodies, enthralling drums and guitar riffing as well as breathtaking hooklines. Topped with the distinctive and versatile performance of Britta Görtz, this powerful new formation and its debut, Solitary, is a must have for fans of bands like Insomnium, At The Gates, Arch Enemy and Amon Amarth.
