launch their new single/video today!
One month before they hit the Mainstage of Graspop Metal Meething along Ghost, Slayer and Volbeat, the Antwerp (BE) based band Bliksem release their new single/video for the song ,,Out Of The Darkness”.
In 2010, the band enters Antwerp’s Little Big Studio to lay down five tracks. The result is a stunning EP of powerful thrash metal garnished with heavy prog elements. Since then Bliksem quickly established a strong live repution, played tons of clubshows and well-known festivals and the first full-length album `Face The Evil’ (2013) got rave reviews in important magazines.
,,Out Of The Darkness” is the most introvert song from their latest highly praised album `Gruesome Masterpiece’ which was released August 28th of 2015 (Iron Will/Roughtrade/Pias).
For recording this video Bliksem collaborated with the Panda Productions, who are also known for their work with Epica, Evil Invaders and Aborted.
