Melodic death metal outfit Blackguard have debuted a new single titled “By My Hand”. The video for the song was created by Chris Kells (The Agonist) of FTB Visuals. The song features a guest spot by Kittie frontwoman Morgan Lander and is the first taste of their forthcoming album, their first in eight years, Storm. The band said the following of the record and song:
“This has a been a very long time coming, but we’re all elated to finally share with you our first single from Storm. We have no shame in saying this album is by far our best/heaviest/fastest/bla bla bla, you’ve heard it all before, but sooner than later everyone is going to know why we feel this way. We’d like to send a huge thank you to Morgan Lander of Kittie for doing an amazing job on the chorus of this song, hopefully, she can make it out to a show or two to perform it with us.”
You can get “By My Hand”, or pre-order the album digital via Bandcamp. The cover art for Storm can also be found below; it was created by Rainsong Design.
