Watch: Evil Invaders – ‘Broken Dreams in Isolation’

Belgian speed metal crew Evil Invaders released their second album, Feed Me Violence, almost exactly a year ago. Like the album that presumably inspired their name, Evil Invaders keep it fast and thrashing. Unfortunately, the band weren’t completely happy with the final sound for Feed Me Violence and the song “Broken Dreams in Isolation,” so they decided to rerecord the song to release it as a special 7-inch single. The rerecorded version of “Broken Dreams in Isolation” has a thicker, more aggressive sound, more fitting to the style of music Evil Invaders play.

To go with the new 7-inch, Evil Invaders have also put together a nightmarish music video for the song. Check it out below, plus some words from the band. Pre-orders are live via Napalm Records.

“‘Broken Dreams In Isolation’ is without any doubt the song that stands out the most of our entire repertoire so far,” Evil Invaders tell Decibel. “Most of our songs tend to be fast as hell, but ‘Broken Dreams’ is a slower one with a lot more melody and groove. It also has a cool tempo switch and one of the most touching solos ever written by Evil Invaders. We wanted to release this track as a single a while ago, but since we weren’t entirely satisfied with the overall sound of our latest album Feed Me Violence, we thought ‘Broken Dreams In Isolation’ deserved better, so we re-recorded, re-mixed it and had it mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Arch Enemy, Kreator, Behemoth,…) to give the track the sound it deserves.

“The result definitely took our sound to a higher level and we hope people will really hear the difference between the previous version and the new one. Apart from the music, the lyrics of this song tell a slightly ‘deeper’ story than most of our lyrics, so we also needed a special video clip for this one. No band performance this time, but some darker stuff with some cool story lines. Coming up with a cool concept was a real challenge, but very exciting to be part of!

“The single will be released on 7-inch vinyl and the B-side will be a cover track: ‘The Unholy’ of the mighty Savatage! We’re huge fans, but covering Savatage properly can be a real pain! We gave the song our own touch but managed to keep the dark and wide sound of the original version. Check it out!”
