Singled Out: Unleash The Archers' Battle In The Shadow (Of The Mountain)

06/06/2011
.
Today Unleash The Archers vocalist Brittney Hayes tells us about "Battle In The Shadow (Of The Mountain)" from their new album "Demons Of The AstroWaste". Here is the story:

This song was written quite early during the formation of the story for the album. It details the battle between the rebels, led by our protagonist, and the Dark Army, led by the General. The album is a concept piece, describing the tale of a man that salvages a sword from a long-abandoned Earth. However, the sword is incredibly powerful, and slowly corrupts his soul to evil.

This song marks the point where our mercenary completely loses himself to the sword and destroys everyone, including his own friends and lover. I tried my best to describe the scene with both concrete and abstract terminology... I wanted the listener to imagine being the rebels, entirely terrified, expecting only death, watching the Dark Army assemble in the valley below.

The part at the end is my favorite... The boys did an amazing job of writing instrumentals that encompassed the agonizing, yet triumphant emotion our mercenary experiences after slaying two armies almost single-handedly. I really enjoy singing that part, and I hope our fans are just as affected by it as I am :)

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
