The official lyric video for the song "I Will Not Break" from American metal merchants A SOUND OF THUNDER can be seen below. The track comes off the band's new album "Time's Arrow", which will be released on June 4th via Mad Neptune Records.

Known for their total disregard of trends, with "Time's Arrow" A SOUND OF THUNDER have maintained their unique blend of metal, prog, and classic rock, while raising the stakes in terms of song-writing, performance, and production. "We haven't intentionally changed direction at all," said guitarist Josh Schwartz. "We've just continued writing what we love and writing quality songs, although this album did turn out a bit heavier, darker, and faster than the last one. "Time's Arrow" is basically "Out of the Darkness" on steroids," said Schwartz, referring to the band's previous album released on Nightmare Records in 2012.
A SOUND OF THUNDER recorded "Time's Arrow" at Assembly Line Studios with producer Kevin '131' Gutierrez (SHINEDOWN, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, DECEASED).
The 64-minute, 11-song album includes a duet between ex-IRON MAIDEN vocalist Blaze Bayley and A SOUND OF THUNDER vocalist Nina Osegueda on the brooding, Black Sabbath-inspired "My Disease". Other songs set to appear on the album include "Queen of Hell", which was previewed on a limited EP earlier this year, "I'll Walk With You", a zombie epic inspired by The Walking Dead television series, and the monumental 10-minute title track "Time's Arrow".
A SOUND OF THUNDER will also break new ground by issuing a short story, penned by drummer Chris Haren, expanding on the story told in the lyrics of the title track.
