About “The Enemy” single, Ari commenting:

“We wanted to create a video that has a nice balance of story and the band playing. Originally we planned this to be purely the band playing the song but the place we found for the shoot inspired us to add a story element. Joalin Loukamaa did an excellent job in our last video and we asked if she would join the project. Fortunately she said yes and did an amazing job again. We got Saku Suominen from Sakuvisuals to direct and work his magic behind the camera and we had an absolute blast filming this. We feel that the atmosphere of the video and the song complement each other in just the right way and the finished product definitely makes us proud.

The Enemy is a song that starts out fast and aggressive and really carries that momentum from start to finish. It is one of the heaviest songs that we have made so far. When that intro explodes you know that we’re going somewhere fast. But at the same time when the vocal melodies kick in they steer the song into a different direction than you might expect, still carrying the aggressive momentum. That element of surprise is really what crowns the song for me. The Enemy has one of the best melodies we have written in my opinion and Marko’s delivery is just absolutely breathtaking. The lyrics talk about freedom, victory and survival, but they also have connotations to the questionable interpretations of those subjects. The message can be interpreted as positively empowering, but also as a disturbingly delusional illusion.”

SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of aggressive metal maelstrom, DEAD BY WEDNESDAY. With a track record of punishing albums, and endless touring we couldn’t be more psyched to have DEAD BY WEDNESDAY on our roster.

This signing also marks the first release under a partnership with independent metal label, Mindsnap Music. This joint move will help bring new growth to both labels, with a focus on giving bands even greater attention while pushing the boundaries of heavy music.

“Our plan from day one has been to work with a broad spectrum of artists. Many different shades of heavy. So your gonna see our roster grow to reflect that. The time is right. Signing DEAD BY WEDNESDAY and working together with Mindsnap Music is a great step forward. DEAD BY WEDNESDAY have a work ethic, second to none. And this album is blistering. It’s loud. It’s aggressive, and I fucking love it!” –Scott Harrington (Salt Of The Earth Records)

“I’m super excited to be working with one of my longtime friends in the business Scott Harrington. If anyone knows how to make stuff happen, it’s this guy! So with our crazy work ethic and his drive with his label, Salt Of The Earth Records, our union will be nothing short of epic! Merging Mindsnap Music with Salt Of The Earth Records and coming together for the release of our new Dead By Wednesday album “Capital Conspiracy” will be a complete powerhouse!” – Opus (drums/DBW)

“These tracks embody the resilience of our tribe to embrace the challenges of the pandemic and world crisis and manifest a formidable cohesive audio annihilation. The album encompasses the peak of DBW’s creative heaviness. Earworms abound!” – Dave Sharpe
