Swedish cabaret metal band (that’s how I think of them and I’m sticking to it) Avatar have released “Bloody Angel”, the second single from their upcoming album Hail The Apocalypse (out 5/13 via eOne Music).
Vocalist Johannes Eckerström explains the song: “Bloody Angel is about shame and guilt. You look around and watch all the suffering and while searching for someone or something to blame, you end up in front of the mirror. Everything you touch, you break. Everyone you try to save you hurt and push further away. It is a sad reality of being alive, the fact that the closer you get, the more pain you risk inflicting. You try to stay in the light, spread your wings and aim for the sun. But your eyes and hands are covered in blood and you hit the ground, dragging everything that matters with you. The riff is pretty cool too.”
