Back in 2015, Align the Tide formed in Malta. Before they even had a debut album available they cruised across the United States with Mushroomhead and embarked on a European mini-tour. In 2019, Cleopatra Records released their Dead Religion album. Mixing groove metal and deathcore, their energetic debut featured an accessible but aggressive wave of riffs. Now Align the Tide prepare to unleash their sophomore record, Hollow. Decibel Magazine has exclusive access to the music video for the band’s next single (“Unbreakable”) before the album’s August 26th release from Cleopatra Records.
“Death to decay. The debt you owe, will be repaid.” That quote begins the “Unbreakable” video before a brief silence introduces the video’s protagonist. Following the narrative of a fighter who is mocked and dominated by a foe, the video is a perfect companion to the bruising song. The guitars cut from a breakdown of heavy triplets to a death groove that gives the song strong momentum. Once the video shifts into the final bone-crunching showdown, the band’s influences collide. Soaring melodic leads accompany the rugged breakdown riffs as each punch and kick lands. When the track concludes it leaves a splatter of blood on the kick-boxing mat. “Unbreakable” is the second single from Hollow, which will release in a little under a month.
