Becoming Saints has returned with a new lyric video for their song “Vox Mortem.” The track comes from the band’s latest album, Oh, the Suffering; the music video for the first single, “Lost,” was premiered here on HM in April. The album was released in October of 2016.

We spoke with vocalist Drew Garrison about writing the song:

“The song — vox mortem is Latin for ‘voice of death’ — is about waking up and conquering all the things that stand in your way, not giving in to defeat. That voice inside you that says you can’t do something? You’ve got to choke it out and do what you got to do.”

The album is available through the band’s website.
