Positioned at the top of the scene for over 25 years with their prog-infused dark melodic metal mastery, worldwide chart-toppers Evergrey – led by frontman Tom S. Englund – traverse new horizons with their new album, “A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament)”, out May 20, 2022 via Napalm Records.
After unveiling pounding album opener and first single “Save Us”, followed by powerful “Midwinter Calls”, Evergrey conjure another overwhelming epos along their ongoing adventurous journey. The third single, “Blindfolded”, hits with pounding drums and flickering, synth-laden atmosphere. With its insanely grooving guitar solo topped by Englund’s incredible vocals, the track marks the perfect gateway into captivating soundscapes. The upcoming Evergrey album makes it apparent: Tom S. Englund keeps outdoing himself. In “Blindfolded”, his singular falsetto choices elevate the whole vocal performance to “outstanding”. Leave what you know behind and get transported by Evergrey’s enchanting new track.
Just like all songs released from “A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament)” to date, “Blindfolded” is visually highlighted via a cinematic music video, closing the chapters of a three-video story and taking the listener to where it all started.
Evergrey on “Blindfolded”:
“This is the third and last video of our trilogy. It features our acting debut that you shouldn’t take too seriously! It’s also really the first episode of this three-piece story.
We hope you enjoy and share it and your thoughts about it!”
