Ana Sapphira is one of the hottest, heaviest bands on the rise today, and HM is proud to premiere the band’s newest music video for single, “New Eyes.” The Laconia, NH-based band released their debut album, Edge Walker, last year, the follow up to 2012 EP, Damien, and the track is taken from the critically-acclaimed work. The band’s candor and honesty is a cornerstone in their mission, and their live show has garnered the band quite a following and reputation.

We spoke with vocalist Jonathan Lamper about the track itself:

“‘New Eyes’ was the first song we finished and played live before Edge Walker was even recorded. It’s been a part of us for a long time. ‘New Eyes’ is that moment when you wake up and decide you aren’t going to leave anything on the table. You’re gonna get to the bottom of the mess that’s in front of you. You’re gonna find out what’s real and what isn’t, no matter the cost.”

If you dig it, you can grab the album from the band’s store or give them a follow on Facebook.

Heaven's Metal

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
