Following the release of their 2017 EP Ritualis Aeterna, Canadian symphonic power metallers Malacoda have released a video for “Mannequin Heart.” The song is the first to come from the band’s new record Restless Dreams. The album is inspired by the horror video game ‘Silent Hill 2,’ a storyline the band first introduced with the song “I Got A Letter” that was on their second record, Ritualis Aeterna. Malacoda was created by Lucas Di Mascio who originally intended it to be just his own recording project. Di Mascio had been studying Literature and Religion in university and sought an outlet for his ideas. It quickly became a band and now they are ready to take things to the next level with Restless Dreams.
