Within Temptation have released the studio version of “Raise Your Banner,” featuring a special guest: Anders Fridén of Swedish heavy metallers In Flames.
The Dutch symphonic metal band have been playing “Raise Your Banner” live on tour, and going off discussions online, the song’s already become a fan favorite. It’s a call to arms that’s bound to lift your spirits, especially with the spiraling guitar solo and emotional string accompaniment. Fridén stays in the background, but his powerful roar is unmistakable.
“Raise Your Banner” and the previously released “The Reckoning” are both singles from Resist, Within Temptation’s new album, out December 14.
