Coming off the release of the their latest EP, ‘Explorers,’ Canadian power metal act Unleash The Archers have released a new lyric video for their song “Heartless World.” The track described as showing the world what the band is made of.
The band manages to give the original glam metal track by Teaze an unexpected, modern power metal twist. Combining that with an astonishingly wide range of vocal melodies, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS surprise and bewitch the listener yet again.
A clean guitar intro makes you feel almost melancholic, but when the second chorus hits, at the very least, you’ll be tapping your foot. “Heartless World” describes how everything can become too much from time to time, and that sometimes all you need is to unplug and recharge your energy.
The second single is a cover of a song by a Canadian hair metal band from the 80’s called Teaze. They are not super well known, but that’s why we gravitated towards them. The song “Heartless World” has a really interesting arrangement and can’t seem to decide if it’s a ballad or a rock opera. Unlike “Northwest Passage”, where we played around with it quite a bit, we left “Heartless World” almost completely as is, and only changed a few small things like solos and vocal melodies. We thought it would be a great companion piece to “Northwest Passage” and really round out the moody Explorers vibe.
The bands new EP is available via the Naplam Records store in the following formats:
7″ Vinyl Single Transparent Green
- Digital EP
Unleash The Archers will also be live on this year’s Full Metal Cruise 2020.
