“If I’m Crazy” is an ode to self-destructive behaviors that fuel toxic relationships as Amigo lays down a bed of intense guitar tones over pounding drums.

Cayley Thomas – ‘Two Minds’

“Two Minds” is my favourite song on the record. It is all about the negotiation and mental drama that the primitive part of my brain likes to produce when faced with a challenge. Luckily, I have learned to identify this state and am now able to intervene, bringing my higher consciousness into the equation to form a sort of thought tug-o-war.

LYCHGATE: Also sprach Futura Now Playing At Invisible Oranges

Also sprach Futura is the latest work of dystopian singularity from a band engaged in an intense process of evolution and refinement since their eponymous 2013 debut. Melding the swarming, stained-glass complexity of 20th Century classical, the phantasmagoric, intertwining riffage of progressive death metal, the heft and texture of funeral doom and the conceptual density of forward-thinking black metal into four of the most addictive, propulsive, and potent compositions the band has created to date.

Healing the Fray Release Their New Single “Outside Looking In”

“Outside Looking In” is about loss and all that’s left behind. All the uncertainty circles your mind, like an endless storm or a bottomless whirlpool. It can consume you so quickly and it sneaks up without warning. There are infinite questions swimming in your head, riddled by the constant self-blame. Finite statements of what you should or could have said. Why did you wait so long? Why did you hold back? Why did you do this? Why?” – Jeff Sandoval
