British death/doom metal band My Silent Wake have released another new song entitled ‘There Was Death’, the title track from their upcoming new album “There Was Death”, which will be released February 18th on CD and double LP via Minotauro Records. The track is available for streaming below.
Frontman Ian Arkley says: “’There Was Death’ started out a few years ago with a riff written by our live rhythm guitarist, The Drowning’s Mike Hitchen. The song was completed by me and bassist Addam. We recorded last year in 13 Sound and Priory studios. The lyrics were also a long time in development and started with one idea and ended with something quite different. The idea of time stopping completely at an individual’s death (at least in their perception) was the starting point and a survival of death was the finishing point. This survival is something very different to that described by any religion and is very open to interpretation. The song is summed up in the end refrain, ‘Of science, of religion, chained by these confines’.”
