Avatar Drop a New “Christmas” Single and Lyric Video – “Construction of Souls”

Theatrical metallers Avatar rolling into the holiday season with a new single and lyric video with a Christmas metal flair – “Construction of Souls!” The track is to be released together with a children’s book portraying the ‘not-very child-friendly everyday life’ in Santa’s workshop in the parallel universe of Avatar. Avatar also previously announced they signed to Thirty Tigers and have launched their own Black Waltz Records imprint. This is their third recent single from their upcoming new album, due in 2022! Watch the lyric video right now!




Speaking about ‘Construction of Souls’, Avatar comments: “This song will be to Christmas songs what Die Hard is to Christmas movies. It wasn’t intended to be that, but ultimately, it makes a lot of sense. It’s about us — meaning the robots taking over the great human project of our ancestors, building our way out of the planet on sandy soils, saturated with the withering bones of our ancestors.”
