Earlier this month, Canadian melodic power metal quartet UNLEASH THE ARCHERS announced the upcoming release of their fifth full-length album, Abyss, out August 21, 2020 via Napalm Records. Lifted by the urgent, breathtaking vocals of frontwoman Brittney Slayes, on Abyss, the band re-cements themselves as an unequalled, undeniable metallic force with their strongest album to date.
Today, the band is thrilled to reveal a brand new, otherworldly music video for the album's colossal title track, "Abyss". Musically, the track unveils the diversity of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS, delivering one earworm moment after another. Its accompanying video, directed by Rod Scobie (also director of the band's music videos for "Awakening" and "Northwest Passage"), takes the viewer on a CGI rollercoaster ride – launching them firmly from the terrestrial plane to the celestial one. At first, the viewer could assume they're viewing a regular performance video, but little hints here and there begin to reveal that it is far from your average clip!
Abyss is available for pre-order in digital, CD format, as well as 2LP gatefold vinyl format in original black, limited editionred/yellow swirl (mailorder only, limited to 300 copies) and limited edition yellow (limited to 100 copies)
A limited edition Deluxe Earbook format is also available – the only edition including instrumental versions of each track, plus two bonus tracks – synthwave and gothic folk-pop versions of “Abyss” and “Soulbound”, respectively (also featured in a standalone 7” only available with the Earbook format). This is something UNLEASH THE ARCHERS has never done before, turning their tracks into something completely different!
