The band’s self-financed video for “Sinister Nation” has seen over 10, views since its premiere and further showcases their commanding live performance.

Far from being all negative, “De Oppresso Liber” features a band competent on their instruments, playing in the style of one of the genres giants in Dimmu and being backed up by a powerful label Candelight which should hold them in good stead to secure a foothold in such an extremely fickle scene as is the BM world.
