THE HALO EFFECT, the new project featuring five former members of IN FLAMES have released their second single, “Feel What I Believe”. You can check out the video below.
“Feel What I Believe” will appear on THE HALO EFFECT’s first album, which is set to arrive later this year via Nuclear Blast.
Vocalist Mikael Stanne comments: “‘Feel What I Believe’ is basically about how it felt growing up and discovering extreme metal in our late teens. Delving into something that was both frightening and alluring at the same time. And having that as the sole focus as you started playing in a band and in essence decided who you wanted to be. That confidence and laser focus is what still fascinates me. I love that this somehow endured over the years. This is basically us at 19 screaming, ‘How don’t you understand this?’ And even if people around us didn’t get it at the time, at least they could see our passion for it and that’s what this song is about.”
He adds: “The video is also reminiscent of the videos we saw growing up. A bunch of long-haired people in an abandoned warehouse playing loud music while trying to look cool, basically. What we did here though is bring it to another level thanks to Theo Gabay and his amazing team. I love that it captures the vibe of us playing and really enjoying what we do. Also it looks spectacular.”
Last November, THE HALO EFFECT released their debut single, “Shadowminds”.
THE HALO EFFECT features former IN FLAMES members Jesper Strömblad (guitar), Daniel Svensson (drums), Peter Iwers (bass), Niclas Engelin (guitar) and Mikael Stanne (vocals).
