Today, progressive power metal unit INDUCTION officially unveils their sophomore full-length, Born From Fire, out TODAY on Atomic Fire Records.
Comments the band’s Tim Kanoa Hansen, “Louder, bigger, better, faster, stronger. Let me welcome you to the new album of INDUCTION. Born From Fire is out now and will take you on a journey through its universe. It’s a statement to the power metal scene that it’s time to wake up from the slumber and to get some fresh air. Born From Fire‘s epos will draw you in with heartfelt stories, live, catchy melodies, and mind-bending arrangements. While not being a concept album, we still have a very specific message to convey, which – bluntly put – is: We are back and stronger than ever. Not only INDUCTION, but the world of music, in general, after the pandemic’s fatal reign.”
To celebrate the release of Born From Fire, INDUCTION today reveals their official video for “Embers,” an energetic, progressive power metal track dedicated to Children Of Bodom’s late frontman Alexi Laiho.
“‘Embers’ is the reflection of his influence on both my songwriting and guitar playing,” notes Kanoa Hansen. “This is my way of paying tribute to one of my heroes. ‘Embers’ doesn’t only reflect Alexi’s writing style put into INDUCTION‘s context, but also lyrically, it’s about the passing of great people and heroes and letting them live on in our memories. ‘Embers’ is also presented together with a music video, which represents the lyrical topic of evanescence and postmortem.”

Born From Fire, which boasts twelve metal anthems in fifty-eight minutes, was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen and is graced by the cover artwork of Peter Sallai (Sabaton, Jinjer, Powerwolf).
Born From Fire is available on CD, 2xLP vinyl, and digitally. Find special order bundles at THIS LOCATION.

Originally founded in 2014, INDUCTION left their first mark with first single, “The Outwitted Consecration,” in 2016 before completely entering the metal world by releasing their eponymous debut album in 2019. Its enormously positive reception even paved them the way to touring across Europe alongside Brazilian power metallers Armored Dawn in November of the same year. It was a notable career start for the quintet that was unfortunately halted by the pandemic leading to a break (at least on the live front) that wasn’t only used by the band to work on their sophomore album but also to renew their power.
