British heavy metal icons Diamond Head released a lyric video for their song “The Sleeper” on August 8.

“The Sleeper” is the fourth single off of the band’s latest album The Coffin Train, which came out in May via Silver Lining Music.

Of the track, vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersens comments, “It’s such a big sounding track that it almost takes you on a cinematic journey. ‘The Sleeper’ is a follow up to ‘Silence’ off the last record. We had fans who loved the orchestral elements and I wanted to give them some more. It was inspired by a favorite Sci-fi movie from my childhood.”

Adds guitarist Brian Tatler, “Starting life in 2016 with the main riff, I decided to demo it and see if I could make it into a song. With a bit of work this grew into a powerful monster with Ras’ lyrics inspired by the 1984 film Dune. It’s very moody and dynamic with brilliant orchestration.”
