Chicago’s Huntsmen have released the second track from their upcoming album, Mandala of Fear, the single, titled “A Nameless Dread,” is available for your hears below.
Of the new single, guitarist/vocalist, Chris Kang says: “A Nameless Dread is the heaviest and most abrasive song on Mandala of Fear. It tells of an elusive and shadowy cruelty that marauds the desert seeking only to single out, punish, and destroy the weak and wounded. It might be a man, or a memory of unimaginable pain, or both. Either way it was born of pain and was unable to escape its mire, so pain became its legacy – its gift to others. It is the memory of past terror projected outward into the future, wielding boundless power; eternally repleted by those enslaved to it“.
