Well-produced, epic song with strong musicianship, impressive video work and a good homage to the best scandinavian melo-death bands mixed with new wave of american heavy metal. Excellent work all around, would def listen to a full album of this. 
In terms of promotional advice, I would start by suggesting that you include lyrics, links to hear more music and your social media (not just Facebook) in your Fluence submission along with a brief bio about the band. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture of who you are and what you're about along with an easy way to find more of your music if they're interested. 

If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances.

If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Lastly, make sure you have a strong social media presence and that you're on all the right platforms (instagram, twitter, etc) with a unique aesthetic as this will help you draw in listeners and hopefully stand out amongst a sea of performers. Having strong visual content and music videos can def help get your music out there more than just releasing it without any promotional effort. 

Lastly I said it above but can't stress enough how important it is to build your own fanbase on social media and really push your own personality across your channels and have it look and feel as pro as possible. Artists have more power than ever these days so take advantage of all the tools available! Also, this being the metal world, be sure to create as much video content showing off your musicianship, live performances, etc. as I think you could really connect with people there. 

Best of luck!

Loving the intro. The harmony is very ominous and fits perfectly with an apocalyptical theme. Double pedal in time with the guitar rhythm... very nice. Vocals and verse are very reminiscent of Tom Araya and Slayer. Now I get a very Metallica feel at the 6:50 ish mark. The rhythm guitar has a heavy crunch and I love it!

The song is very well put together. No one instrument seems to drown the other and switching up the styles every few minutes is very fitting. It can be considered chaotic, but it works very well with the visuals presented in the music video. Very well done!
