VIDEO PREMIERE: Vietnamese progressive metal outfit Windrunner debut ambient, atmospheric “Orchid” (Remix)


(HANOI, VIETNAM – August 16th, 2019) Vietnamese progressive metalcore outfit Windrunner have released a mesmerizing dance remix of popular single “Orchid”.

“Orchid” (Remix) comes a week out from the band’s upcoming EP ‘SEN’, a melodic re-imagining of 6 tracks from debut album ‘MAI’.

‘SEN’ is set for release on August 23rd, 2019 via Famined Records, with video for lead single “Lotus” having dropped at the end of last month.


Vietnam metalcore outfit Windrunner are showing their softer side with the release of dreamy new single “Lotus” and the announcement of ‘SEN’, featuring 6 re-imagined tracks from the band’s breakout debut album, ‘MAI’.

Windrunner made their debut in 2015 with the release of ‘VUI’, an EP which showed a stunning potential from the young Hanoi heavy hitters. The band’s mesmerizing concoction of lightning grooves, melodic guitar lines and a delectably ambient undertone piqued scene interest across South East Asia & their trajectory would soon take an altogether more direct route to national success.

“Abandoning the whimsical guitar shreds and unclean vocals from the original, this rendition beautifully slows things down. The focus is instead set on incorporating more melody and urgent harmonics.” – Alt Press

Touring the continent with the likes of Attila and Secrets further bolstered the band’s stock and on November 30th 2018, Windrunner released their debut album ‘MAI’ via US record label Famined Records. ‘MAI’ propelled the band to international recognition and honed a brand of metal quite unlike anything else in the scene, led by the acclaimed female lead vocal of Duong Bui. Windrunner supported the release as direct support for genre mainstays Emmure on their 2019 Asia Tour.

Windrunner delivers their latest EP, ‘SEN’ with a beautifully refined precision, generating emotion and instrumental excellence across 4 tracks and 2 remixes, that will resonate with fans across the width and breadth of metal and alternative rock.

‘SEN’ is set for release on August 23rd, 2019, with “Orchid” (Remix) out now on YouTube and Spotify.
