The raw energy of two metal queens merges with the sophistication of a vigorous new arrangement! Melodic metal quintet BEYOND THE BLACK, fronted by exceptional singer Jennifer Haben, present their sonorous third single, “Wounded Healer” featuring Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), off their upcoming album, Hørizøns, to be released via Napalm Records on June 19, 2020.
“Wounded Healer” is a first class bittersweet yet heavy track, but also serves as a sample of what’s to come from the co-headline tour featuring BEYOND THE BLACK and Swedish/Danish metal institution AMARANTHE set to take place at the end of this year. Along with a futuristic looking lyric video, the new offering leads the way through the tangled maze of hope and desperation. The timbre of Jennifer Haben’s remarkable voice and the energetic vocals of AMARANTHE frontwoman Elize Ryd, complete the song while presenting a new facet of BEYOND THE BLACK’s modern blend of melodic rock and metal. Beautiful yet strong harmonies, emotional storytelling and energetic vocal lines weave throughout this heavy melodic rough diamond.
With Hørizøns, BEYOND THE BLACK unbolts their unequalled, differentiated spectra of symphonic and melodic rock spiced with sonorous melodious metal soundscapes in 13 manifold songs. The album kicks off with its heavy, yet atmospheric title track, spanning the range of intumescent soundscapes and Jennifer Haben’s crystal clear, striking vocals.
Beautiful yet strong harmonies, emotional storytelling and powerful vocal lines weave throughout “Wounded Healer” (feat. Elize Ryd of AMARANTHE) and will light your way in gloomy times. Dark subliminal grooves coalesce with harmonizing guitar lines and form the prevailing nexus of “Human” and its unmistakably catchy chorus. Another facet rises with “You Are Not Alone,” which is dominated by electronic influences as well as symphonic sounding violins. Hørizøns’ atmospherically dark harshness creates a stylistic bow over the distinctive melodic rock meets pop sound in symbiosis with fragile yet strong fragments. The charismatic outfit persuades with a rousing, emotional clout and their strong, confident message of self-assertion.
