Tomorrow the Danish heavy metallers Pectora will present the first single Untaken from their debut album by the same name. However, DutchMetalManiac is proud to already give you the Dutch video premiere of Untaken today.
An almost 7-minute long song, rich on full-blown heavy metal, with a big and powerful melodic chorus as well as harmonies, that stick to your brain. All wrapped up in a modern and big production. The song tells the story of a post-apocalyptic nightmare visualised in the video, by several different sequences, combining pictures of death, terror and war into art.
Untaken is produced by the band and mixed and mastered by one of Germany’s leading producers, Orden Ogans Sebastian ”Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody Of Fire, Riot V & Brainstorm), in Greenman Studios. Singer Kenneth Steen Jacobsen comments: “Untaken is set in a post-apocalyptic world where we follow a group of survivors fighting to stay alive from the attacks of another unknown group. As the battle rages outside we hear the words of the people fighting to survive. The inspiration to these lyrics came from a view on the inner battles a person can have. Are you going to fight or are you going to “Run for your untaken lives”?”
Untaken will be released on CD, LP & digital on May 3rd.
