Friday, March 12, 2021 – Brazilian metallers Eminence have today released their blistering track “Dark Echoes” and music video accompaniment featuring special guest Bjorn Strid of Soilwork fame. The impassioned single is a compelling call-to-arms for the fight against bigotry in its myriad of forms pervasive in today’s society. Between the hard-hitting beats and heavy guitar riffage, “Dark Echoes” is unafraid to address the social and political issues the world is currently experiencing. In addition to the new single, Eminence has also announced their forthcoming “Dark Echoes” album (via Bloodblast Distribution). Speaking on the track, Eminence’s guitarist Alan Wallace shares:
“We wrote this single as an outburst of our reality. We are against any form of racism, fascism, homophobia, and violence. Even when connected via the internet, people feel lonely and increasingly distant. We cannot stand and watch all this happen and think that the world is normal. We are not just numbers, we are human beings and we have to fight for the respect of life.”
