Die finnischen Melodic Hardrocker HIGHWAY QUEEN präsentieren ´Bitter Soul´ vom gleichnamigen Full-Length-Debüt, das am 16. Dezember in die Läden kommt, im Musikvideo. Das Trio besteht aus Sängerin Virpi Kääriäinen, Gitarrist Teemu Kääriäinen und Drummer Henri Backman und mischt 80s Hardrock mit Blues, Doom und Thrash Einflüssen.
Die Band erklärt den Titelsong näher:
„We wanted to compose a very simple and blues-like song. We tossed around ideas and played and played until we got verse and chorus ready. Still, we weren’t pleased with the chorus. We had a session with the producer and we introduced the song to him. He also thought that it wasn’t ready yet. So we played the song and tried to think out of the box and the chorus came out. The guitar has a gloomy riff to give the song a darker shade. The bass came out to be strong together with simple and tight drums still giving some spice on its own. Bitter Soul tells about a woman who has lost her loved ones. Her soul has died. She regrets and mourns but she doesn’t know how she can change the things she has done.“
