While it’s not the new song the band debuted live on the Dark Skies tour last weekend, Fit For A King have released an explosive new song in the form of “Breaking The Mirror”. The new song arrives as the band is currently headlining their own Dark Skies world tour, and thankfully for FFAK and heavy music fans, that tour is still going on as scheduled despite the coronavirus quarantine. Stream the new track below.
Lexington, North Carolina deathcore band The Stygian Complex has unveiled a deadly new song titled “Death Worship”. The new song is a heavy hitting 3 minute freight train. Evolving on the sound the band created for themselves with their 2019 self-titled debut album, the new single is one to bang your head to. The vocals for this band are especially enjoyable — glass shattering high tones with volcanic lows and gutturals. Something about the vocalist’s tone just gets us, in a great way. The production was done by Kascade Mixing & Master who has done work with Distant, Bound in Fear, and more. The band also launched preorders for their upcoming EP titled Tartarus, which is due to release April 24th, 2020.
New Hampshire natives TrueShot are no strangers to immersive, cinematic releases within their music. Formed in 2018, the band released their EP Escape in July of 2019. The EP kickstarted an active movement that eventually led to their explosive new single “Paradigm”, which drops on Friday. Mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc, Prenc has done some impressive work for the likes of bands such as Alpha Wolf, Dealer, Polaris, and Gravemind.
The new single also features lead vocalist Aidan Holmes of metal act Dealer, and this will be the first musical experience we have heard from the band since the 2019 EP. In authentic TrueShot fashion, “Paradigm” brings out some ferocious vocals and aggressively, atmospheric instrumental work with a poignant message as well.
