With venue-leveling double bass, Sheffield, UK's Arkdown kick things into high gear and let new single Harbingers do the talking from the get go. The track comes from the deathcore band's upcoming record, Terra Phasma, which arrives independently on December 3rd with a vibrant cover by the talented likes of Shindy Design. Like the illustration at the forefront, Arkdown is simple yet atmospheric and deadly, needing no extra gimmicks or false pretenses to draw attention to their name. They let the riffs do the talking and with Harbingers leading the way, Terra Phasma will be widely welcome.

Arkdown comment on the track:

"'Harbingers' is about betrayal at its core. Broken promises and oppression, being let down and betrayed but finding the strength to move on through that and past it, and hopefully trying to realise that it can make you a stronger person when you emerge from the other side. I've been let down and lied to a lot in the past and I guess that Harbingers is a first step in letting whoever has gotten the better of me in the past know that they're the reason I'm still standing. They're the reason I am who I am today. Everyone experiences it in some form or another, but if they're like me they'll keep it bottled up. I hope that others listening to the song will get the message that they're not alone, even though it might feel like it when everyone lets you down."
