Beholder Premiere New Music Video ‘Frozen Steps Of Utøya’

 Beholder - Banner

BEHOLDER have premiered the first single / video from their highly anticipated third album ‘REFLECTIONS’ (release date to be confirmed).

The track ‘FROZEN STEPS OF UTØYA’ is a pre finalised and as yet unmastered mix, nevertheless it is a powerful introduction into the next phase of the Beholder (R)evolution.

The song itself is based on the events of 22nd July 2011 in Norway; when a lone terrorist claimed the lives of 77 victims with 68 of them defenceless teenagers on Utøya island. Yet, somehow, out of this tragic adversity a country has shown such resilient spirit.  Beholder have strong ties with Norway having played there several times. The album is currently being mixed over there by Arvid Tjelta (Frogleap Studios).

Produced by Andy Pilkington (Very Metal Art) the video ‘Frozen Steps Of Utøya’ showcases a strong start to 2016 from the British progressive metal band and a glimpse at an album that hopes to win the minds and hearts of metallers worldwide.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
