“Skies Set Ablaze” contains strong themes of human conflict, represented here by Fire and Ice.

As December Falls – “Keep Dreaming”
The importance of perseverance, self belief and never giving up has never been more relevant than it is in today’s world. These themes and more are at the forefront of As December Falls new single “Keep Dreaming…”, which is out now.
In a time where it is finally becoming more acceptable for people to discuss their issues, fears, and anxieties, “Keep Dreaming…” carries a message of hope, believing in yourself and that your life has meaning.

The band explains:
The song is about having a quarter life crisis, feeling like there’s something wrong with you and being troubled by all the unknown in life. The verses are a person breaking down from these issues whilst the chorus is a consoling voice, saying that everyone has the same feelings and to not dwell on the questions you’ll never have the answers to.

Finnish Wacken Metal Battle winners From the Void have released their brutal music video “Man Created God”. Formed in the early winter of 2009, From the Void is a black metal group from northern Finland bringing forth their gospel of the end times, fire, light, ashes and truth.
