Orlando based Gothic Folk Metal band URN has released the official music video for their single, “Silently, I’m Still Screaming,” off of their 2015 released LP, Epiphany. The band’s newly announced members, keyboardist Cleve Hall (SyFy’s “Monster Man”) and drummer Eric James Peterson (ex-Electric Hellfire Club) are featured in “Silently, I’m Still Screaming” from their Epiphany LP released on Dark Moon Records.
“Many fans had given feedback that this song was one of their more favorites off of the album, so we wished to honor them by doing this video. We also wished to showcase our guitarist, Christopher Migdalski’s lead work on this song, as he has been a role model for those afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease and how to overcome disabilities to still pursue his life dream. Our hope is that this will inspire those to continue on in their battle and achieve whatever dreams/goals that they have.” – URN
