Flaming Wrekage have released their latest metal masterpiece with new single “The Voiceless”.
True to form “The Voiceless” and its upcoming video clip dive deep into some truly personal territory. Sonically, the song is classic melodeath styles delivered with that Flaming Wrekage flair complemented by a chorus and hook that grow in size each time you hear them.
The song sets up for a monumental wall of guitars and builds into a pummeling crescendo through the middle section. Matt Thornton delivers one of the most “trustworthy blasts” with rock-solid support from bassist Lach Campbell on the five-string.
Visually, the video clip tells the story of a girl trapped in silence; voiceless and unheard while a brother tries desperately to reach out and help, coming face to face with the reality of the impossible barriers that exist between them. Dave Lupton (vocals, guitar) tells us what the song means lyrically:
“This song was pretty challenging to record, not just because it has some tricky parts for everyone, but because the lyrics are profoundly personal and the execution had to be perfect. I busted my own chops more than our engineer/producer Chris Themelco on this one. It had to be right. The song tackled growing up with my disabled sister and the challenges that that brings. It was tough for everyone, but none more so than her. My parents have made a lot of sacrifices and are still very happily married, which is unbelievable. The song can be interpreted in many ways, but I think the main takeaway is overcoming the mental battle within yourself and moving through immense communicative hurdles.”
