VILIFY Return With New Single ‘Odyssey’

Share This:

Mulubinba/Newcastle-based alternative-metal group Vilify have today returned with a monstrous new single Odyssey, produced and mixed by Chris Blancato (NorthlaneBare BonesReliqa).

Odyssey erupts with angst and ferocity, emphasised by sweltering guitars and commanding drums, which fuel the lamenting vocals from frontwoman Amy McIntosh. Frantic verses pave the way for a cathartic chorus, contributing vehemence and vitality to an impenetrable structure. Unrelenting and vulnerable, Odyssey is an onslaught of emotion directed at the unfairness of loss.

“Our song ‘Odyssey’ is based largely around Amy’s feeling of loss, anger, and confusion at losing her father quite early in her childhood,” the band explains. “The song raises issues around wondering if her father would be proud of the person she has become and how he would have shaped her life if he was still alive. A central theme is questioning why God (if there is a God…) took such a loving and caring man. If a God took him, then he must hate everybody else and not care or condone justice in any way.”
