Release Date: October 6th, 2023
FFO: Enslaved, Amorphis and Amon Amarth.
Location: Los Angeles, California
The single is a cover of Depeche Mode's classic 'Halo,' and features haunting melodies that will leave listeners in awe. The band is made up of singer/keyboardist/lyricist Emma Michaelsen, guitarist/bassist Art Bertik, and violinist Alyson Montez. The single also features guest musicians such as classically trained grand harpist, Michelle Sardi Campbell, and members of industrial metal group Despite Loyalty, Aren Hacobian on drums and Scott McNicol on lead guitar. Martorn's lyrics offer imagery of strenuous growth, ephemeral beauty, and inevitable decay, making the single bittersweet, like Pandora's box, full of darkness, redeemed by hope yet tempered by morbidity. Fans of Enslaved, Amorphis, and Amon Amarth are sure to love this new release from Martorn.
