Aus Portland, Oregon stammen SPLINTERED THRONE, die ihre erste Single `The Reaper is Calling` vom kommenden Album via Bandcamp veröffentlicht haben. Die Band reichert ihren klassischen Heavy Metal Sound mit ein wenig progressivem Hard Rock und entsprechenden  Melodien an. “The Greater Good of Man” erscheint am 19. August.

Sängerin Lisa Mann kommentiert die Veröffentlichung:

„When people ask „what did you do during the pandemic,“ we can say we spent it making a kickass old-school metal album. When we put it all together, we knew „The Reaper is Calling“ had to be the opening track. People are in for a solid kick to the eardrums with this one. We’re very proud of how it turned out!“

Lyrics:

I am awakened by a dream, petrification as the dark surrounds me
A shudder runs along my frame as the truth returns to mind
I hear the clock it’s striking three, mortification as the hours flow by me
I’m clinging to my every breath, I know I’m running out of time

Aces and eights in my hand
Resigned to the fate that is waiting for me
Bracing my mind for what lies in store
The hourglass draining its sand
Moment of destiny racing toward me
Soon I’ll be hearing that knock on my door
The Reaper is Calling

I never thought that it could be, this retribution for my past transgressions
I had imagined I was free, but now I see I was a fool
As I am peeking through the shade, I see a shadow in the lane behind me
There is no hope now for escape, it is the time to pay my due

Aces and eights in my hand
Resigned to the fate that is waiting for me
Bracing my mind for what lies in store
The hourglass draining its sand
Moment of destiny racing toward me
Soon I’ll be hearing that knock on my door
The Reaper is Calling
