Ryan Simmons (In Fear) comments: “This is the 2nd official single release from our debut album “All Is. All Shall Be.” which follows a concept story throughout, linking each song to the previous. Thematically it focuses on a character who is trapped in purgatory trying desperately to reach the afterlife, but they are doomed to repeat the same torturous cycle of events. In ‘The Blinding White’ the character is face to face with an angel, who shows them their past sins in life and gives them a chance to judge themselves fairly by wiping their memory of having committed these acts. The truth that they were indeed responsible for these sins is revealed to the character at the end of the song. Mistakes in life are inevitable, it’s the way we respond to these mistakes and our willingness to improve that counts.“
