“Before Hope Fades” is the second track to be unleashed from Starkill’s upcoming album Virus of the Mind, which drops on October 14th and it’s easily one of their best tracks to date, meshing everything from death metal vocals to clean vocals to orchestration to raw guitars to an old school metal solo. So, regardless of whatever your favorite metal subgenre is, chances are you’ll find something to like about this sick puppy. And the video, directed by Dave of Music Media Group (Sevendust, Butcher Babies), is super creepy, setting the tone for this helloween.
