Hailing from the Carolinas, Voraath, the sci-fi horror-inspired extreme metal band is gearing up to release their debut album, Vol 1: The Hymn of the Hunters on June 17 via Exitus Strategem Records. Today (25th), the group has teamed up with Metal Insider to premiere a video for their latest single, “The Barrens.” The track offers a blend of crushing riffs and distinctive soundscapes, delivering a unique cinematic soundtrack. The band aims to shed light on PTSD struggles through this track, as they explain:

“This was our first song as a band, a song that encapsulated the brutal and melancholic nature of post-traumatic stress (PTSD). The video is a series of flashbacks from the point of view of two of the hunters. One is experiencing loss and betrayal; meanwhile being pursued by a savage otherworldly entity (which shows the layers of coping with one tragedy while fighting to simply exist). The other is the feeling of hopelessness that turns to hate and that hate consumes those around her.”

Accompanying the album release, the group is set to hit the road in June with Gorgatron and Casket Robbery, dubbed the Mechanical Necrosis Tour. Additionally, Voraath will perform at Michigan Metal Fest on August 24th in Battle Creek.
