Tampa, Florida-based metal-core band Forthteller just recently released a new music video for their song “Of Nothing.” Signed to Imminence Records, the song is off the band’s most recently released EP Nihilist which was released last year.
We spoke to drummer Thom Schultz about the meaning behind the song:
‘Of Nothing’ represents the struggle to find meaning. In an exceedingly nihilistic society, the search for meaning and purpose has created, for many, an existential crisis that can often drive us to madness. The main character in this video represents the internal struggle of a person trying to find meaning, while the cloaked figure represents an enlightened being attempting to guide a lost individual through the void. On the whole, this song fits with the rest of our Nihilist EP, which is our attempt to create a dialogue about the topic of human existence. Why do we exist? We do we persist?
What an amazing track, we cannot wait to hear what’s next from this band!
We congratulate the talented mates at Forthteller for having their recent release, ‘Nihilist’ make it on the Billboard charts at #2 on the Heatseekers. They’re currently signed to Imminence Records and are making it up to the top fairly quickly. I’ve never met such a humble, dedicated, and hard group of individuals as these musicians.

My absolute favorite thing about the Florida music scene is the incredibly diverse, and eclectic group of bands that make up the state. While central Florida is famously renowned for it’s history with extreme metal, there is undoubtedly something for essentially everyone to discover. These three bands we’ll be visiting in this segment may be complete polar opposites of each other, but they’re all a part of the bigger picture in the Florida music scene. You can get to know them a bit after the jump.
