“Blind Eye” – a concise, ear shattering attack on the senses with a dystopian narrative sure to sum up 2020 – is the second song and music video released by BRAVE THE COLD, led by longtime NAPALM DEATH axeman Mitch Harris and drummer Dirk Verbeuren of MEGADETH. The song comes off Scarcity, their “raucous debut” (as described by Pop Matters), available today on all digital outlets worldwide. Limited-edition, colored vinyl and CD’s will be available December 11th. The album was produced by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).
“We’re all excited about BRAVE THE COLD’s Scarcity digital release today!” exclaims Harris on the debut of his new album. “To kick it all off, we have a cutting-edge video courtesy of legendary Polish director Marek Skrobecki.” “Blind Eye” and its Gregorian chants kicks off Scarcity as the album itself can be described as a ‘precursor to prophecy.’
BRAVE THE COLD is a two-piece formed in 2018 and features the two metal legends focusing their energies into a new level of aggression. The culmination is Scarcity, an eleven-track collection of ferociousness breathing much needed life into the heavy metal scene of 2020.
The band’s first music video was released earlier this year – the confrontational “Hallmark Of Tyranny,” set on attacking the powers of government. Harris states, “It’s meant for a positive outcome from creative efforts inspiring change. Inspiration through art is essential in our world, with our need for social interaction, adaptation, individualism and personal transformation.”
Physical packages for Scarcity are available now and feature t-shirts, long sleeves, zip-up hoodie, along with music formats on CD and three limited-edition vinyl colors: Clear with Silver and Blue Jay Splatters, Highlighter Yellow with Black Splatters [Independent Retail Exclusive], and Milky Clear.
