Progressive metal band Wilderun have released “The Tyranny of Imagination,” the second single off the Boston outfit’s forthcoming album, Veil of Imagination.
Frontman Evan Berry sings over epic synths and raucous guitar riffs on the track: “Timidly you strive into the distance where the unknown beckons you / Cowardly you hide inside the future where despair is not yet true.”
“Whereas our previous single ‘Far from Where Dreams Unfurl’ explored brighter, melodic territories, we wanted this song to focus more on guitar work, atmosphere, and the darker textures of the orchestra,” Berry said in a press release. “Lyrically, this song is a sort of submission to the power and oppression of an overactive mind.”
Their forthcoming record Veil of Imagination is set for release on November 1. While you wait for the album, stream “The Tyranny of Imagination” here:
