Celldweller Releases "Precious One" Lyric Video From 'End of an Empire (Chapter 04: Death)'

Detroit-based electronic rock mastermind Celldweller has released "Precious One," the second single off of End of an Empire (Chapter 04: Death) via Substream Magazine.

The song features Celldweller at his darkest — mixing deep, foreboding lyrics with large, metal-driven music. Substream had this to say about the track:

"It’s probably unlike anything else you’ve heard this year."

Death, released today via FiXT, is the final chapter installment of the four-part End of an Empire series. The full-length LP, which will feature two additional songs yet to be released, is due out later this year. Instead of releasing End of an Empire in a traditional format, Celldweller has released the album in chapters to give fans a better insight to the world he is building with his music. Watch the "Precious One" lyric video:

Celldweller explained the concept of "Precious One" below:

“‘Precious One’ is the track that lyrically attaches itself to the concept of ‘Death.’ I didn’t want to do something predictable and expected, so lyrically, I wrote it from the perspective of the Gatekeeper, who is the character that lovingly ushers people from this life to the next. Musically, when I started this track I only had two goals to shoot for—doom metal meets trip-hop. Hopefully, I pulled it off.”

Not familiar with Celldweller? The Detroit-based artist, who also co-founded and owns his own record label, FiXT, has written music for an array of films, television shows, and video games such as: The X-Men Trilogy, Iron Man 3, Spider Man 2 & 3, Dead Rising 2, Assassin’s Creed II, and more. He’s charted on Billboard the last 2 years, peaking at #15 on the Electronic chart. His music has been streamed over 100 million times across various platforms and his latest single, “New Elysium” is a must-listen cross-genre explosion.
