April 29th will see Belgium’s OFF THE CROSS release their second studio album, entitled Enjoy It While It Lasts.
Following their critically acclaimed, 2018- debut album, this time the heavy yet melodic metal act hailing from Antwerp presents us a new sound that is both colourful and modern. Backed up by pianos, organs, choirs and synths, OFF THE CROSS creates a profane wall of sound, with a blistering and high- voltage performance by a young band who is thirsty for energy: With Enjoy It While It Lasts, OFF THE CROSS has not only taken a great leap forward but they are ready for a new chapter.
After the band recently shared a first sneak peak with their first single, “The Dance”, OFF THE CROSS have just unleashed a brilliant new music video for the song “Exist”! Says bassist Kurt Hermans: “The theme in ‘EXIST’ appears a little prophetic for a song written and recorded before the pandemic hit us, but most of all we want to put things in perspective and have fun.
With this song and video we show that we don’t want to take things too seriously, least of all ourselves.”
The clip for “Exist” was produced and directed by OFF THE CROSS, enjoy the band’s new video right here:
Enjoy It While It Lasts was recorded at multiple studios across Belgium and The Netherlands, and was mixed by Joost Van Den Broek (Powerwolf, Epica & many more). The record features a variety of special guests and takes you on a 45-minute journey through the darkest depths and brightest lights. The album will be coming out as LP Gatefold, CD digipack and Digital formats on April 29th, pre-order your copy at THIS LOCATION!
