Iranian metalcore band One Missing Link returns with a fresh new music video for ‘Shadows Inside’.
Since their last creative effort ‘The Monstrosity’ featuring Vocalist Nikan Nasim and guitarist Mahan Abdollahi, One Missing Link has become a quartet with the addition of drummer Kiumars Saffari and bassist, Nima Mohammadi.
One Missing Link’s latest creative effort Shadows Inside deals with the concept of duality within the human consciousness and how the conscious and usually the righteous ‘Self’ converses with the invariably corrupt ‘Specter’ who creeps up on the ‘Self’ with intrusive and usually destructive thoughts.
Vocalist Nikan adds, “This song is about a conversation with a half-life specter of our own self within the heart; it’s the part of us that desires evil things; should you ever succumb to it, it leaves you with the consequences. But the truth is, you control both “Yourself” and the “Specter,”; this begs the question, how can we overwhelm all these temptations in our daily lives? This song calls for a victory rush against all the black dots inside our personalities that could blacken our hearts.”
Both these tracks will be featured on the band’s upcoming EP ‘The Other Side’ to be released on Iranian label Tough Sounds. For fans of bands like Wage War, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Motionless in White, One Missing Link combines the extremity of Rusty Metalcore Noises with the fragility of unstable apperception, look out for this band!
