HIRAES Unleashes Music Video for New Album Single “We Owe No One”!

January 26, 2024 will see German melodic death metal act HIRAES – featuring former members of Dawn of Disease and Critical Mess – furiously kick off the new year with the release of their sophomore studio album, Dormant, via Napalm Records!

Following the previously shared, thunderous album opener “Through The Storm”, today, HIRAES are premiering a music video for their brand new single, the fast-paced rager “We Owe No One”! The concept for the video comes from singer Britta Görtz, and GUP Media is responsible for its realization.

The band comments about the track and video:

“Catchy – groovy – thrilling! Today we present you our rebellious anthem and second single 'We Owe No One'. Embedded in an intense sound and filled with anthemic melodies that will burn themselves into your brain, the song creates a gripping sense of unity that can be transferred to our entire metal community. The track goes straight to the front and in the video we have given free rein to our creativity together with the camera team. Put the song on continuous rotation, watch the video and don't forget: We Owe No One!“

Compared to their lauded 2021 debut, Solitary, it's immediately evident that HIRAES did not only grow within their sound due to countless live appearances, but have invested more time and energy into developing their sophisticated songwriting and production, leaning further into their own unique sound profile. Due to the use of varying keys and sonic elements, Dormant is undoubtedly fresh without sacrificing the nuances that caused their first album to connect so successfully with fans.

HIRAES already created an exciting new melodic death metal emergence with their first offering, built upon a brutalized vocal attack, intense melodies and aggressive guitars. On Dormant, HIRAES flexes their own trademarks in an intensified way, ranging from versatile drumming, catchy riffs and hymn-like melodies to enthralling soundscapes and the impressive vocal onslaught of singer Britta Görtz. Dormant is a stirring, intense and dynamic death metal affair that is both heavily brutal and dark, yet full of melodic melancholy.

The band recently said:

“The album will grab you with its intensity from the first second on and won't let you go. We invested a lot of energy, dedication and passion to create this monumental and melancholic piece of melodic death metal. Having played countless shows over the last two years, Dormant captures the energy of HIRAES’ live performances and places the songs right between heart and gut.

Once again, none other than the talented staff of Fascination Street Studios are responsible for the refinement of our sound. Jens Bogren and Ricardo Borges did an excellent work on the record. We are so much looking forward to unleashing Dormant upon all those metalheads out there!“
