Following their critically acclaimed debut, Belgium’s Off The Cross has announced the release of their sophomore studio album, slated for a release on April 29, 2021. On “Enjoy It While It Lasts”, the heavy yet melodic metal act hailing from Antwerp presents a new sound that is both colourful and modern. Backed up by pianos, organs, choirs and synths, Off The Cross creates a profane wall of sound, with a blistering and high- voltage performance by a young band who is thirsty for energy: With “Enjoy It While It Lasts”, Off The Cross has not only taken a great leap forward but they are ready for a new chapter.
Vocalist Daan Swinnen states: “I’m extremely excited that Off The Cross is finally releasing ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’. We have been spending a lot of time, energy and love into this album and I can’t be more proud of the result. After a long wait and a beyond crappy year for everybody in music world, this feels like a new start and a commencement of better times.”
To share a first sneak peak, the band has just premiered a brand new video for the song “The Dance”. Another brilliant example how Off The Cross‘ music embodies the dualistic society we live in. Watch their epic new video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd9dX63iuaQ&ab_channel=OffTheCross
