Track: The Halo Effect – Become Surrender

Markus Esselmark

Gothenburg´s mettallers The Halo Effect have returned with a brand new single ‘Become Surrender’. The track has been a staple of their live shows for a while now, and has quickly become a fan-favourite. 

Mikael Stanne comments: 

“‘Become Surrender’ was written and recorded during the ‘Days Of The Lost’ sessions, but for some reason we left it out of the album. It has been something we have played during festivals and on our tours and the response has been nothing short of fantastic, so we decided to release it in the interim before we start rolling out singles for the second album. The video was shot during our sold out show at Pustervik here in our hometown of Gothenburg in front of a few of our closest friends and hopefully the joy and love we felt in the room that night shines through. It’s a song about perseverance over distance and not giving in to despair or doubt. Turn it up!”

Tension building and explosive, Stanne dominates with his growl, still one of the finest I have heard, the melodic chorus adds a touch of pop cleanliness while the guitar duo of Niclas Engelin and Jesper Strömblad deliver a fretboard masterclass. It’s perhaps one of the band’s most accessible tracks but one that’s an absolute banger. That first album was not a fluke.
