Pop quiz kiddies:
What does Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust, Cory Glover of Living Colour, Derrick Green of Sepultura, and AJ Channer of Fire from the Gods have in common? If you guessed they are all bad ass Black Metal vocalists, congratulations you win a pat on the back.
I normally enjoy a good metal vocalist, but when I listened to Fire from the Gods, I instantly fell in love. I had a conversation with a few friends recently as to why there aren’t a lot of black metal vocalists nowadays, and we boiled it down to the fact we aren’t accustomed to the Heavy Metal/Rock genre unless we find it on our own. So, when this came across my desk, I had to jump at the opportunity to review it. As an extra bonus this song was produced by Jonathan Davis, lead vocalist for Korn.
Fire from the Gods just released their new video for “The Voiceless” off their upcoming album Narrative Retold, due to be released May 19th. This video is what dreams are made of.
The beginning starts with Channer walking up to the mic and getting himself hyped. In those few moments, the band has already captured my attention. As he is singing “World keeps spinning/World keeps spinning,” he spins the camera that transitions to the next scene. It is flawless.
I had to read the lyrics the first go around and watch the video a second time. While I can go into complete detail about the cohesiveness of the music, I want to dive into the topic of the song and the video. It is describing the volatile world we live in today. It talks about the inequality people face in society, but keep getting ignored by the majority. This is a song that unites all people from different backgrounds and can be used as a tool to promote unity amongst us all. When we stand together, we can show the world: united we stand and divided we fall.
Here is the video for “The Voiceless” Make sure to pre-order Fire from the Gods new album Narrative Retold and you can catch them on the 2017 Van’s Warped Tour in a city near you.
