BOREALIS Release ‘Ashes Turn To Ruin’

Share This:

October 7, 2022 will see Canadian melodic metal act, BOREALIS, return with their fifth studio album, entitled Illusions, on AFM Records. With their critically acclaimed debut in 2008, BOREALIS took the heavy music scene by storm, and seen them opening for several metal greats such as Epica, Sonata Artica, Saxon and Kamelot to name just a few.

Now, four years since 2018’s The Offering, Illusions arguably marks the bands most complete album to date while adding more orchestral elements and darker themes. The album not only introduces composer and multi-instrumentalist Vikram Shankar (Silent Skies, Redemption, Lux Terminus), who was brought in to compose all of the orchestra and synth elements, but the record is also a continuation of the story from The Offering, taking place years later through the eyes of the children and how the traumatic events they experienced has shaped their lives.

Following the previously-released, first single, Pray For Water, BOREALIS have just shared a second album sneak peak, with a colossal music video for new track Ashes Turn To Rain.

Watch the epic, new BOREALIS video clip for Ashes Turn To Rain below.
