Following the release of their debut EP, ‘Effigies of Time’, AMBRIUS have revealed a new video for the track ‘Breathe’.
‘Breathe’ is laid bare to remind anyone who hears it going through hard times to stay strong. The song’s lyrics are inspired from the perspective of someone whose country has been invaded, causing everything they cherished to be taken away or destroyed for others gain and greed. Ambrius delivers important reflection and observation with clarity in what are unimaginable times for so many.
The new track is an example of the fierce and cathartic nature of what is one of the most impressive metal underground debuts this year. While Ambrius is most likely a new heavy metal band you’ve yet to discover, that is set to change with the group announced for Bloodstock’s New Blood stage this August.
Featuring former members of metal acts Oakhaart and Tempestora, the Gloucester metallic cohort has spent time honing lessons learnt and applied pure bloodied delivery to produce one of the best emerging metal debut EPs in 2022. BOA will be the perfect setting to introduce the collective tracks, in their entirety, to the Catton Park collective this summer.
Vocalist and producer Sam Shiers says, “BOA is hallowed ground for us, so being given the opportunity to play is absolutely amazing. Not only do we have the chance to play our debut EP ‘Effigies Of Time’ to an amazing audience and potentially make some new fans, but we also get to play alongside some of the biggest, best, new and underground bands that the UK/Worldwide has to offer. It’s fantastic to play a festival so closely linked to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, something of which we are all huge supporters of. This is an experience we will remember forever.”
For a band who have only just released their debut EP, this August will see Ambrius part of an astonishing Bloodstock bill that’s headed up by the likes of Behemoth, Mercyful Fate, Lamb of God, Testament, Dimmu Borgir, Jinjer, and a host of other incredible acts! Tickets for this event are available here.
Ambrius play BOA’s New Blood stage on Saturday 13th August. Their new EP ‘Effigies Of Time’ is out now.
