Black Orchid Empire Share "The Raven"

Prog rock trio BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE have shared a brand new single titled "The Raven." The track comes from their forthcoming album, Tempus Veritas, scheduled for release on April 14th.

Vocalist/guitarist Paul Visser comments on the track, "'The Raven' is a song inspired by our love of Viking folklore and mythology.  After the Danish Vikings began raiding England in the 9th century, many sought long-term settlement - they were farmers who saw an abundance of rich, fertile land in the hands of the Saxons. 'The Raven' is written from the point of view of such a settler who, after many years in a foreign land, is struggling with the feeling of losing touch with the old gods of his former home.  The insane video created by our friend and visual collaborator Alina Gordienco is a brilliant modern-day take on the idea of losing your identity and fighting your inner demons."

Pre-orders are now available HERE. The album can be pre-saved on various digital platforms HERE.
