Straight from Lisbon, Portugal, progressive metalcore masterminds Borderlands unveil a brand-spanking-new music video for the song “Children of the Sun”. This is the third song to be premiered off Voice of the Voiceless, their upcoming debut full length, which is set for release on June 10th. Check out the insane video below.
The band- which consists of Rui Martins on vocals, Yuri José and Hugo Capelo on guitar, Cristóvão "Kiki" Monteiro on the drums, and Gonçalo Beco on bass- leaves listeners with extremely high expectations for the upcoming release. With the single, the quintet displays an ability to compose complex music that weaves gripping melodies into a tightly structured, pummeling assault. The song features a willingness to go wild tempo-wise while still sounding extremely on-beat, a la Massachusetts technical deathcore giants Within The Ruins, though they ultimately exhibit a feel that is very akin to the likes of metalcore compatriots Northlane, Erra, and even Oceans Ate Alaska.
Voice Of The Voiceless Track List:
2. Children Of The Storm (feat. Nelson Robello from The Voynich Code)
3. Release Yourself
7. Voice Of The Voiceless
8. The Curse (feat. Anger from Above The Hate)
9. Children Of The Sun
With only a few singles and a three-and-a-half-year-old EP to their name, Borderlands is too good of a band not to expand its reach beyond Europe with this new album. Voice of the Voiceless sounds more polished and professional than their last efforts thanks to the mixing and mastering done by Nicolas Delestrade, who has worked with Betraying The Martyrs and Novelists in the past.
Says vocalist Rui Martins of the new album: “This album is definitely stepping up our game, we’ve put a lot of effort into this and hope that everyone enjoys it and loves it as much as we do.”
Borderlands are working hard and are well on their way to achieving greatness because of it.
With a set album release date on the horizon, now is the time to follow their social media and stay up-to-date with the latest happenings of this band. You can pre-order the new album, as well as download their old music, right here. Stay tuned!
