WIDOW: ‘Take Hold Of The Night’ Video Released

“Take Hold Of The Night”, the new video from Raleigh, North Carolina traditional metallers WIDOW, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Blake Faucette and Justin Ryche and was filmed in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

“Take Hold Of The Night” comes off WIDOW‘s fourth album, “Life’s Blood”, which was released on November 11, 2011 via Pure Steel Records.

On the twelve tracks you get a great mixture of fresh heaviness and enthralling melodies. The inclined listener will hear more than a more of the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) along with influences from some well-known North American bands, but never forgetting the band’s European-metal origins. The material ranges from the sublime mid-tempo tracks (“Embrace It” and “Behind The Light”) to the faster twin-guitar-orgies such as “Take Hold Of The Night”, “The Burning Ones” and the closing song, “The One I Know”. The production is powerful yet traditional, so you can expect a bold sound, without faceless sterile production.

01. Lady Twilight
02. In Dreams
03. Take Hold Of The Night
