Illenium (real name Nicholas D. Miller) is well known for putting his diehard fan base in their feels, but his latest single is something different altogether. "Blood" featuring Foy Vance is among the songs comprising Miller's upcoming album, ASCEND, and it sees the Denver DJ/producer take a turn for the heavy.

The cinematic grandeur of Miller's other releases is evident in the opening measures of "Blood" as Vance's testosterone-laden vocal takes center stage in the arrangement. At the drop, however, it gives way to dissonant sound design elements sure to whip a sold-out crowd into a headbanging frenzy.

"Blood" won't likely be the only time Miller ventures into heavier territory. After a lightning strike warning during Global Dance Festival forced him to call off what would have been his first-ever back-to-back set with Excision, the two artists revealed that they spent the time working on an upcoming collaboration instead.

ASCEND will arrive in full on August 16th, 2019. In the meantime, stream or download "Blood" featuring Foy Vance across platforms here.
