Artist Name: Icarus Witch
Song Title: Rise
Sounds Like/Influences: anthemic arena rock/power metal
Dark Knight, Icarus Witch commands you to RISE!
With Bat-mania at a fever pitch today, I was hoping to find a song to match the intensity of Nolan's epic conclusion to his Batman trilogy (ok, I'm assuming from the previews, but still, safe assumption right?). If Christopher Nolan was a fan of power metal/hard rock, this song could've been the theme song for the new movie. The tune starts off with an intense arena-rock style riff, lures you into a false sense of security in the verse, then erupts into a fantastically layered vocal chant of "RISE! RISE! RISE!" during the chorus.
The song is also catchy to the point that it'll be stuck in your head well after the credits roll.
