Recently, HM premiered a playthrough of Darkness Divided’s “Eternal Thirst” from 2014’s Written in Blood. Today, the San Antonio-based quintet ha gone acoustic with a new video for “The Hands that Bled.” The song was originally the first single from that same album, their debut album as well as first effort for Victory Records.

Bassist Joe Mora, who also played keys and sang back up on the track, spoke about the track via press release:

“The song came together in a way that was much grander than I previously could have imagined. The original song lends itself to re-imagination, but I think the interplay between the voice, cello and piano parts in the acoustic version really make it much more than a simple restructuring of ‘The Hands That Bled.’  We all had an extraordinary time getting out of our comfort zone to create something we can actually show our grandparents without worrying about their pacemakers malfunctioning.”
