The 2nd single from Ωmega called Freedom (The Wolves Within) was released this morning along with an epic animated music video by Bram Knol.

I added the lyrics to our song database, along with a text by Mark Jansen to explain the meaning of this song.

For this new single, the band teamed up with WWF and Nuclear Blast to support a good cause :

Three goals have been set on streaming platforms, and with each goal reached, Nuclear Blast will sponsor the symbolic adoption of 2 endangered grey wolves through the World Wildlife Fund, so that at the end of the game, each band member will have adopted one animal. Not only do grey wolves suffer from steady habitat loss, they also have to endure revenge killings for attacks on wild stock, and the World Wildlife Fund depends on sponsorships and adoptions to conserve the natural habitat of these precious animals.

The goals we need to unlock are :
– 400,000 views on YouTube for the new single
– 200,000 combined streams on all streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music…)
– 600,000 followers on Spotify

Let’s all help the band to unlock the goals and adopt these grey wolves in the name of Epica !
