Shield of Wings press forward to their imminent album release with third single and video, ‘Crushing Hail‘. Presented here, in the form of a powerful lyric video / full band playthrough, this single comes from their debut full-length album. ‘Unfinished‘ is set to be released on February 11.
Guitarist James Gregor said of the track,
“High energy and full of life, ‘Crushing Hail‘ is the first track of our upcoming album. It sets the stage for the dynamic and emotional journey housed within the rest of ‘Unfinished‘. So, bang your heads with us as we go forward, unheeding, through the wind and hail!”
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.
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.
