EXCLUSIVE: Wake of Sirens Shares New Lyric Video – “Owned By the Ocean”

 

Ghost Cult is proud to share the debut lyric video from Boston’s seafaring-themed metal band Wake of Sirens! The band describes their sound as inspired by not only tales of the open ocean and admiralty, but also by the shanties and music sung upon the waves. The bands’ vibe is a hearty blend of threads from Powermetal, melodic Thrash, and Death Metal genres, but also sounds like the bastard child of a proggy feeling Amon Amarth and Alestorm for some extreme nautical heaviness! Their debut album The Blackest Deep releases on April 3rd 2020 and will be avaialble via all streaming platforms. The band includes members of bands such as Boston scene music veterans such as Vivisepulture, Ice Giant, Dzo-Nga, and ex-Age of Embers. So get on board and watch the lyric video for ‘Owned By the Ocean’ right now! Continue reading
