Canadian melodic metal act Borealis released a lyric video for the new song 'The River." The song appears on the band's upcoming fourth studio album called “The Offering." The album drops on March 23rd via AFM Records. Pre-order it now over here. "The Offering” describes a story concept resulting from an interest in cults sparked by his fascination for horror movies. As singer Matt Marinelli explains: “The album follows the creation, rise and ultimate demise of a cult who practices human, more specifically child sacrifice. They believe this method of belief, sacrifice and devotion will bring an end to the suffering of humanity, as well as bring back the innocence of mankind that was lost to greed and industrialism. However, due to their lack of respect to powers greater than themselves, they unwittingly create a deity out of the sacrificed kid, whom ultimately delivers punishment due to their injustice. The men in the cult are too self-consumed with their righteous quest, they've completely overlooked the fact that children are the true key to restoring and preserving lost innocence.”
“The Offering” was produced and mixed again by the bands Drummer Sean Dowell, who was also responsible for mastering this time.
