"Once We Were One" follows the single "Show Me," released about a month ago. With these two tracks, heavy metal fans can see the power in their music and the coherence in their themes - making their album "Now Is The Time" worthy of everyone's time. The latest Perpetual Etude track is now available on major music streaming platforms.

Perpetual Etude was formed in 2019 by Magnus Mild with the sole intention of bringing back the best of the heavy metal scene from the 80s. Heavily influenced by the genre growing up, Magnus collaborated with members from NorthTale and members from Dionysis, Shadowquest, Nation, and Göran Edman on "Sail Away" to complete and bring his vision to life. This results in the best of an entire decade compressed in the amazing debut "Now Is The Time," an album filled with blazing guitar riffs, keyboard solos, and catchy choruses.

"Now Is The Time" is set for release on October 15. Listen to "Once We Were One" below:
