Times of Grace will premiere the brand new video for "Where the Spirit Leads Me" on Tuesday December 7th via Record Store Day and Metal Club. The video can be viewed at two locations: here or here.
The song is featured on the band's forthcoming debut, The Hymn of a Broken Man, which lands in stores on January 18th. The unique video is just one of 13 total videos that will appear on the special edition of the album, which is also out on the 18th. I like that – I can choose to buy the regular or special edition on the same day, instead of having to re-buy the special edition six months later.
Times Of Grace is a new collaboration between two old friends and colleagues – Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach. Dutkiewicz and Leach are original members of Killswitch Engage, with Leach serving as the band's vocalist for KsE's now-classic Roadrunner debut, Alive or Just Breathing, which left its mark on the resurgent, modern American metal scene in 2002. Leach left the band shortly after, but his friendship with Dutkiewicz remained.
Known by friends and fans as Adam D., the beloved guitarist is also one of the most-sought after producers in heavy music, having worked with everyone from Underoath to Unearth. He wrote the music for The Hymn of a Broken Man in his head while recuperating from back surgery, which forced him to sit out a KsE tour. He recruited Leach to sing the songs and a partnership from the past was renewed. The result is a hypercharge yet artfully aggressive album that will entice fans both new and old. I have heard it already and I can already predict that it will be on my Top 10 of 2011 list. Believe it.
