The northern lords of symphonic melodic-death metal are back!
8 years since the release of their last album “Firefight”, BLACKGUARD have released “By My Hand”(featuring Morgan Lander of Kittie), the first single for their upcoming album “Storm”.
“This has a been a very long time coming, but we’re all elated to finally share with you our first single from ‘Storm’. We have no shame in saying this album is by far our best/heaviest/fastest/bla bla bla, you’ve heard it all before, but sooner than later everyone is going to know why we feel this way. We’d like to send a huge thank you to Morgan Lander of Kittie for doing an amazing job on the chorus of this song, hopefully, she can make it out to a show or two to perform it with us.”
