Arising Empire signs Swedish melodic death metallers Eyes Wide Open

20th May 2021 0 By John Deaux

Arising Empire are excited to welcome Eyes Wide Open to the label and announce the release of new single ‘Devastation’ on 28th May. Eyes Wide Open are a four-piece modern metal band based in Karlstad (Sweden). 

“The world is on fire! Devastation spreads through the human society with pandemics, misleading information and corrupted leaders. Why can’t we change our ways?” the band comment.

With their latest and fourth album The Upside Down (2019), they hit like a juggernaut and paved the road to the top tier within the scene. Their music carries the torch from Swedish melodic death metal, mixing it with modern sounds and new influences inspired from metalcore. Catchy melodies, heavy drumming, pumping rhythms and versatile vocals merge into their own style of metal.

The band continue: “Destroying ourselves and the earth with greed, depression and hate and how we all stand silent doing nothing about it, disconnected by a self made mask.”

This is ‘Devastation’, due for release on May 28th via Arising Empire.

Pre-save ‘Devastation’ here:

“See the pain through my eyes
How it feels under the bleeding sky
I just want to say
We’re not here to stay
Humanity is running away”

Eyes Wide Open are:
Erik Engstrand | vocals
Kristofer Strandberg | guitar
Jesper Lindgren | bass
Lucas Freise | drums
