Today, Dutch symphonic metal stars  release the lyric video for their first single entitled ‘Universal Death Squad’. The song comes from the upcoming album »The Holographic Principle« and is an impressive first demonstration of what fans can expect from ‘s sound in the year 2016.
Watch the clip here:

“The first song we unleash upon you is “Universal Death Squad”,” states guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen“This track is representative for “The Holographic Principle”, as it’s a heavy and melodic album. The lyrics are dealing about advanced robotic legions with a self-determination to kill. We have chosen for a different kind of lyric-video concept in which plays the track in a rehearsal room. The song is very much fun to play and I expect this one will do very well on stage. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did creating it!”
