Australian self-styled “trap-metal” band The Weight Of Silence are back with a new video for their new single “Runnin’ Through The 666”. Showing off a slightly different, almost melodic hardcore side of the band, The Weight Of Silence bring an undeniable swagger and sense of fun to the genre they play in, and right alongside bands like Dropout Kings, might well be considered part of the niche genre’s movement. Of course, only time will tell what’s to come on TWOS’s 2020 full-length, but the results are promising so far.
Stream “Runnin’ Through The 666” below, and stay tuned for more upcoming material from the soon-to-be breakout band.
Before we go any further, yes, trap-metal is a thing. It’s a new evolution of sorts for heavy music in general, and while bands like Dropout Kings have managed to make decent music in the genre, bands in the style that are actually interesting are few and far between.
Enter Australia’s The Weight Of Silence, who are itching to get their names out there with new single, “Green Is The New Black”. The band’s new track, which we’re really stoked to be premiering today, also features Upon A Burning Body vocalist Danny Leal – adding plenty of heft and even fun to the song. While the video is undeniably silly (think Attila for a point of reference), it’s clear The Weight Of Silence knows how to have a good time, showing a self-aware sense of style too. Plus, the video for the song has a horse AND a jet plane. How can you say no to that?
