Instincts is the upcoming album from Costa Rica-based melodic metal band Sight of Emptiness, and from said release we’re super-pleased to present you with a download of the ripping new track “Passion”. Take a listen now and be sure to grab the tune and get all your friends amped for the forthcoming release. Instincts was recorded, produced, mixed & mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johansson @ The Panic Room Studios, Sweden. (Watain, Scar Symmetry, Mors Principium Est, Solution .45).

Instincts tells stories based on the region’s flora and fauna; the richest wildlife imaginable. The album focuses on nature, and its gravest threat: mankind. Songs are based on animals, insects and natives. Lyrics explore two different perspectives: animals’ lifestyle in their environment, and humans not being able to respect it and co-exist with them. The song “Passion” tells the story of tropical birds: they fly free in the skies, but feel a deep unease about their future; they’re afraid that one day they might end up confined in a cage just to satisfy humans desire to have total control over everything around them.
