SHIELD OF WINGS’ emotionally vulnerable ballad “Come Home” soars with an aching melody in this one-take singthrough by chanteuse Lara Mordian. The song comes from the symphonic metal band’s debut full-length album Unfinished, released on February 11 of this year.
Vocalist Lara Mordian expressed “‘Come Home is a deeply emotive song that is one of my favorites from the album. In the time since recording the track in the studio in 2020, much has happened in my life that really makes the song hit home. It is my hope that it brings you solace, as it does for me.“
Sure to appeal to fans of symphonic metal giants NIGHTWISH and EPICA, as well as film score composers like HANS ZIMMER, JAMES HORNER, and HOWARD SHORE, their new album, Unfinished, will bring into view 10 bombastic compositions of poetic exploration.
Each song from Unfinished explores themes of growth through self-examination, regret, sacrificial death and rebirth. From the “Crushing Hail” of the suffering which is inherent in life, the listener is carried through this journey, until the final track expounds upon the realization that we are all, in ways, “The Scarred Clay Reshaping.” With bold, vast orchestral compositions soaring over chugging guitars, SHIELD OF WINGS makes it abundantly clear that they are Unfinished, in more ways than one.
