The world is on fire!”
Devastation spreads through the human society with pandemics, misleading information, and corrupted leaders. Why can’t we change our ways?
ARISING EMPIRE is pleased to welcome EYES WIDE OPEN to the roster. The band has shared the new song “Devastation.” Watch it here.
Eyes Wide Open are a four-piece modern metal band based in Karlstad, Sweden. With their fourth album, 2019’s The Upside Down, they hit like a juggernaut and paved the road to top tier within the scene. Their music carries the torch from the Swedish melodic death metal scene — mixing it with modern sounds and new influences inspired from metalcore. Catchy melodies, heavy drumming, pumping rhythms, and versatile vocals merge into their own style.
“Destroying ourselves and the earth with greed, depression, and hate ,and how we all stand silent doing nothing about it, disconnected by a self-made mask,” the band shares.
“See the pain through my eyes / How it feels under the bleeding sky ‘I just want to say ‘We’re not here to stay / Humanity is running away”
