After properly announcing themselves with August single Deus Ex Machina, Holy Wars are keeping the momentum going with a new track: BODY//TEMPLE.
Released via Pale Chord and with an accompanying video, the band – vocalist Kat Leon and guitarist/producer Nick Perez – collectively state that their new tune “embarks on a profound journey of self-discovery, navigating through ego dissolution and the depths of the shadow self”.
Holy Wars continue: “Its lyrics serve as a poignant cautionary tale on the path to enlightenment, shedding light on how our egos and self-projections can become insidious adversaries. This composition urges us to scrutinise every facet of our lives – be it religion, society, or our very essence – for authentic revelation and personal liberation.”
Speaking about its video, they share that the clip “mirrors this primal intensity through its visuals, escorting viewers on a transformative journey alongside Kat as she confronts her shadow self. This duality is perceived, both from the vantage point of the audience and the stage, encapsulating a gut-deep resonance.”
