Finnish sludge metal outfit Black Royal are gearing up for their sophomore full-length effort, Firebride, which is scheduled to arrive on February 14th via Suicide Records. The group has already unleashed a video for “Pagan Saviour,” and today (13th), the band has teamed up with Metal Insider to stream their new song “Hail Yourself.” The track was recorded live in Studio Watercastle, which was later completed in September at the band’s own Armless HQ studio. The song touches on the subject of how one day all mankind will eventually be done for as we should find strength to brace our own extinction.
Vocalist Riku explained:
“As mankind is determinedly roaming toward its own demise, we should abandon all gods but the most important one is one’s self. Let us cherish our inner strength and be strong while we are dancing to the inevitable extinction.”
