Today, Las Vegas-based metal band Mynas is proud to premiere the new lyric video for their track “Tearing Down the Clouds.” The track comes from the band’s upcoming album, Dead to the Unknown, set to hit stores and streams on Jan. 25.

We spoke with the band about the new single:

“’Tearing Down the Clouds’ is a song that demonstrates where we have been and where we can go. It was one of the first songs we wrote for this record, and it really had us testing our limits as writers. Musically and lyrically, we all came together and really found our ‘sound,’ per se. During recording, it was just full of possibility. We all felt each moment had to be monumental.”


Dead to the Unknown is the band’s second album, a follow-up to 2015’s Fear the Slave. You can follow the band on Facebook and Instagram.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
