Two years after the release of their fifth album “xxV”, Beyond The Labyrinth (BTL) is back with a captivating new single, “Haunted House”.
The production by (BTL keyboard player) Eddy Scheire has the band sound fresher and more contemporary than ever all the while remaining true to their style of mixing a hard rocking approach with memorable song writing by (guitar player and band founder) Geert Fieuw.
Singer Filip Lemmens delivers a breathtaking performance.
For bass player Bart Jacquet (a.o. ex-Manic Movement) and drum player Jan Moerman (also : BufferState, ex-Crusader) who recently joined the band, this is their first release with Beyond The Labyrinth, and what a great foundation they lay to the song !
To top it off, the single comes with a virtual B-side, a gorgeous acoustic version of “Haunted House” showcasing the song in its pure strength.
Fun Facts :
-The working title of the song was “Ghost In The Attic”. To avoid confusion with the 2015 single “Ghost Melody” the band opted for “Haunted House” as the title.
-The band sneakily slid “Haunted House” into the setlist of a show and asked their fans to film the performance for use in the video clip.
-For the recording of the acoustic version, keyboard player Eddy Scheire whipped out his old accordion that had been gathering dust in a closet in … his attic.
