Metal Injection has premiered the Behind the Black Eyes booklet animation video for new song "A Journey We Had." The zine praised the tune in saying that it "has ridiculously crunchy grooves, fat riffs that were written to be components in a much bigger sound, and a rhythm section that contributes a gravely foundation for all this insanity to stand upon; it's just a downright catchy jam." Check out the video here.
Behind The Black Eyes was produced and mixed by Elram Boxer. It was mastered at The Panic Room by Thomas Plec Johanssen. The band discusses the sound and ideas behind the album as follows:
"Aggression is the most important thing about Metal in our opinion. It has been an important outlet for so many people, including ourselves. We write the music from the bottom of our souls. The creative minds behind Ferium have experienced deceit, unfaithfulness, heartbreak, betrayal, pain and loss, all of which creates a sonic portrayal of aggressiveness and frustration in an effort to solve all of life's struggles, and to turn them into positive and empowering experiences.
With our lyrical concept revolving personal relationships, emphasizing a story from the protagonists point of view, our new album has a much more direct and cohesive approach than Reflections, Behind the Black Eyes is a concept album, which makes it much easier to imagine yourself being in the story through vocals that play a big role in creation of the atmosphere and the huge groove riffing. Eliran Kantor's (TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, HATEBREED) mesmerizingly brutal cover artwork gives the lyrical concept the image it deserves."
