Heart Through Sacrifice 3rd single and album launch
Prog metal story weavers, Heart Through Sacrifice, unveil their 3rd single entitled: ‘Eyes Of Gold / The Warrior’. Amping up the pace from the previous two tracks, we are now introduced to the female lead character of the story. She is graceful and powerful, beautiful and passionate. Together with her lover by her side, she travels the wastelands hunting the creatures that haunt the earth.
While the first single, ‘Blood Stained Stone...’ ebbs and flows with melody and ambiance, and the second track, ‘Born From Sin…’ bludgeons with heavy riffs, the third chapter shows a combination of the two, creating walls of guitars, drums, synths, odd time signatures and of course, soaring vocals!
As with the first two chapters, there are no names given to the characters so that the listener can add their own touch to it and become more invested in the tale.
The full album comprises of 10 tracks (out end of August 2019) and showcases heavy guitars, frantic drums and electronic synths all which underpin powerful vocals courtesy of Corinne Cooper, a professionally trained singer, whose credits include The Voice, The Chattering Nuns of Good Omens and regular live performances in the UK.
Final mixing and mastering duties were carried out by Matt Bew (Whitehouse Studios, Reading, UK).
A full graphic novel is also in the works and will accompany a wider release of the album in late 2020 with artwork by Bec Dennison of Bullet on a String who also designed the Heart Through Sacrifice logos.
Heart Through Sacrifice is the project of NZ born, London based musician, producer and creative, Doug Rimington (ex Voodoo Diamond, Hold The Dawn, The Superhelix), who has combined his musicianship with his passion for storytelling and burgeoning flair for production. Performing all parts on the recording apart from vocals, he has created a cinematic prog metal adventure he hopes all will enjoy.
Speaking on the album and project as a whole, Doug explains, ‘I finally have something I am truly proud of, something that represents my creative career so far, that I feel is really special and I cannot wait to share it with everyone!’
The singles ‘Blood Stained Stone / The Boy’, ‘Born from Sin / The Beast’ and now ‘Eyes Of Gold / The Warrior’ are out now on all digital platforms, instrumental versions are included with each track on Spotify and iTunes/ Apple Music.
The ‘Heart Through Sacrifice’ self titled album will be available at the end of August 2019 as a limited edition CD only digipak until late 2020 when the graphic novel bundle will be released.
