Boston’s Survive the Sun is melodic deathcore that came together while all members were studying at the Berklee College of Music. The natural creativity and close living environment quickly led to dorm room writing and recording sessions, which almost lead them as students/band members being expelled from their quarters due to noise complaints.
Introducing themselves with the 2020 song “The Minds in Which They Feast”, the quintet is ready to follow it up with their second single accompanied by a music video. Entitled “Forging The Nemesis”, it’s the second song the band wrote together, all over an entire weekend, in their first apartment post-dorm life back in 2019.
Vocalist Micah Burch explains the track in further detail:
“This single specifically visits personal trauma. It’s a fairly straightforward tale of suffering that leads to an existential change, or series of changes. It speaks on how trauma can temporally sculpt something entirely different by running the gamut of emotional responses. The hope is that the people that need it can interface with the feeling and relate, subject to their own experience. So I suppose the experience is relatability.”
Aggressive, resonant, and commanding, Survive The Sun is only getting started, this second single that they are presenting was mixed, mastered, and re-amped by Buster Odeholm (Vildhjarta, Humanity’s Last Breath) and according to them:
“This single is so much better overall than anything we’ve done in the past, Odeholm made ‘Forging The Nemesis’ sound greater than we ever could’ve imagined it turning out, a big shout out to Odeholm audio.”.
For metal fans looking for new and upcoming bands, Survive The Sun is a listening experience geared towards dynamism and is designed to be sat with. Even as a fresh new band their goal is to give listeners a multiplexed experience. With “Forging The Nemesis” they are offering a more technical and produced sound than their debut track, along with with plans for future songs to be written with 7 strings and to be dropped tuned along with being implemented with more groovy elements instead of their current 6 strings.
“The fabric of each song has a commonality, but they also exhibit slight mosaicism in their peripheral aspects. Effectively, the foundations are the same, but each track has a different feel, providing the listener with a variance to explore. We have about 6 more songs so we haven’t decided if we’re going to do an EP or full album yet, but we are very eager to get them out so it will be soon”,
High energy, high momentum, Survive The Sun will be performing live shows in the New England area and more, having already performed on Welcome To Rockville (2019) that included a lineup with Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Disturbed, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Lamb Of God, and more.
