A melodic journey unfolds.
Danish melodic death warriors HEIDRA have followed up on their debut full length Awaiting Dawn with a juggernaut. Four years in the making, HEIDRA delivers soaring guitar harmonies, blissful orchestral passages, growled vocals mixed with powerful clean singing and a relentless barrage of crushing metal riffs on their sophomore record The Blackening Tide.
Underneath the heaviness lies a narrative, one that tells the story of a king deposed and his attempts to reclaim his throne. From start to finish, The Blackening Tide guides you through the dawn of the day of reckoning where armies clash in a murderous fury, hoping to emerge victorious. However, events suddenly take a turn for the worse and the protagonist is cast into a hellish realm alongside his army.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono (HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE) at Kick Recording Studio in Rome. HEIDRA consists of vocalist/guitarist Morten Bryld, guitarists Martin W. Jensen and Carlos G.R., drummer Dennis Stockmarr, and bassist James H. Atkin.
