SHADOW OF INTENT, one of the most exciting and revered bands to emerge from the metal world in recent years, have dropped a claymation music video for their epic track "Blood In The Sands of Time" today. Taken from the band's new album, Elegy, that was released last month and met with high acclaim from both critics and fans alike.

Speaking on the band's new release, guitarist Chris Wiseman shares
“We are beyond excited to share this new claymation video for Blood in the Sands of Time. This is the band’s collective favorite song of the album and we can’t thank Shayne Minott enough for bringing this vision to life with his unique style.”
"Blood In The Sands Of Time" follows previous singles taken from 'Elegy' - "Of Fury", "Where Millions Have Come To Die" feat. Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel and first taste of the new album, "From Ruin...We Rise". The album announcement was preceded by the release of stand-alone tracks "Intensified Genocide" and SHADOW OF INTENT's twist on the Lamb of God classic "Laid To Rest". To date, the album has clocked up 7.9 million streams and 1.7 million YouTube views.
Since their formation in 2014, SHADOW OF INTENT have garnered a reputation for crafting mind-blowingly technical, prog tinged symphonic deathcore. Widely acknowledged as one of the forerunners of the current deathcore renaissance, the band's debut album 'Primordial' was named as one of Revolver Magazine's '15 Essential Deathcore Albums', with Metal Sucks giving their 2019 album 'Melancholy' a perfect 5/5 review, stating "you can expect Shadow of Intent to send echoes across metal for as long as they feel like making music". To date, they have clocked up 69 million streams, 26.5 million YouTube Views and have 262k monthly listeners on Spotify.
SHADOW OF INTENT kicked off a US tour last week with Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel and Revocation. Tickets available from shadowofintent.com
