Freya (Earth Crisis) are streaming a new track titled “Serpentine” online below. It features a guest solo from Between The Buried And Me‘s Paul Waggoner and will appear on Freya‘s new full-length, “Paragon Of The Crucible“.

Speaking on the collaboration, Waggoner stated:

“I was truly honored to be asked to be a part of this record, and the “Serpentine” track specifically. I have great respect for the Freya guys and their musicianship, and it was a real privilege to be able to add my little touch with a guitar solo. Ultimately, this song is a balance of heavy, aggressive riffing and emotive, driving melodies. So it was my goal to encapsulate the overall vibe of tune by creating a part that added some contrast, but one that was still complementary to the music and vocals.”

Paragon Of The Crucible” is due for a release early next year through Holy Mountain Printing.
