About the video:
“We are obviously in some insanely scary times right now in the world with Covid-19 and I pray everyone is staying safe and sound the best they can. I am asthmatic and have had some tough breathing/chest issues and battled some flu-like symptoms for a couple of weeks, but I’m starting to feel better now, thankfully. I can’t imagine what people who are suffering the worst symptoms of this virus are going through. I pray for all who have contracted the virus to get better soon! And to all who have lost someone already to this horrific pandemic my deepest condolences to you and your families. Please stay home & help us all!!!” tells guitarist Mike Orlando.
VIDEO WAS SHOT IN NEW YORK’S TIMES SQUARE, CENTRAL PARK, AND MACY’S JULY 4TH FIREWORKS
On a lighter note, Mike says that “‘Take Me Higher’ is a real fun rockin’ track with a lot of movement and energy. Ailyn did a fantastic job on the vocals, as she did on the entire album, with some great multiple harmony layers.
The midsection dropdown enters the solo section with a cool effect I tracked using my kill switch then kicks back up into the solo and takes off. The track has great energy for the album and the melody has you singing along before the track ends.
Video wise Ailyn, myself & the film crew shot right in the heart of New York City’s Times Square & Central Park. We also shot Ailyn singing directly in front of the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks show near the famous Brooklyn Bridge.”
FRONTIERS WAS THE CATALYST HER CHARIOT AWAITS
This exciting new musical alliance came about through the vision of Frontiers, who put the two artists – each eager to create a new and exciting project – in touch. The pair gelled extremely well, creating an album that offers songs that will excite all lovers of technical, aggressive, modern, and extremely catchy heavy music.
Melting the well-defined metal approach of Adrenaline Mob with more melodic hooks, Her Chariot Awaits showcases the incredible vocal talents of Ailyn. Here, she moves in a heavier and more straight-ahead direction compared to her previous band.
