With a week away from the release of “The Evolution Of Anger,” the second album for Victory Records, modern metal act Shattered Sun has unveiled the video for the new single “Hollow Chains.” Perfectly outlining the demise of cultural and social consciousness, the video also exhibits the ferociousness Shattered Sun is known to deliver on stage.
“Everyone hides behind a keyboard nowadays, and ‘Hollow Chains’ is a call for individuals to take back their identity,” prompts Shattered Sun vocalist Marcos Leal. “Everyone seems to take their arguments to the digital front and fight unnecessary battles between each other every day. All of a sudden any particular event takes away our identities as human beings and replaces it with a close-minded, cold-hearted dismissal of another person that disagrees. It’s fueling the divide by turning us on each other. Take away unity and replace it with the ‘every man for himself’ attitude, and it creates a hollow chain around us all.”
