Thanks to newer bands like Blind Equation and The Callous Daoboys (just to name two), there’s plenty of the “weird” in heavy music right now. At least if you know where to look. You can easily add ZOMBIESHARK! to that list, the one-man project helmed by Cory Swope. What sets him apart from many other bands and musicians is an off-kilter approach to music – namely combining distinct electronic and metal influences, with lyrics that also touch on some dark subjects.
Now signed to Theoria Records, the new ZOMBIESHARK! song is also out now. It arrives in the form of “Heads I Win, Tails You Lose, You Are My Sunshine”, and you can stream that below. Disorienting (in a great way!) musical style aside, the technical musicianship and interesting songwriting are a harbinger of things to come.
“The suffocating feeling of being trapped without a voice, feeling unheard or unseen. It feels like an endless repeating cycle that simply goes on and on.”, says Swope about the new song.
