CONVERGE, THE RED CHORD & Ex-JOB FOR A COWBOY Members Team Up For New Death Metal Band, UMBRA VITAE

Posted by on March 31, 2020 at 9:39 am



Umbra Vitae is here to cure any deficiencies in heaviness you might be suffering from. The band features vocalist Jacob Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds), guitarists Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues, ex-Hatebreed) and Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth), bassist Greg Weeks (The Red Chord), and drummer Jon Rice (ex-Job for a Cowboy, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats).

Umbra Vitae will release their debut album Shadow of Life on May 1 and are currently streaming the steamroller of a debut song "Return to Zero" right now. Bannon tells Revolver a little bit about the single, saying it's about bettering oneself.

"'Return to Zero' is about removing resistance in one's life in order to be best version of 'you' that one can be," Bannon says. "I feel that this is a relatable topic for many. What resistance is and how it manifests is unique to every single one of us. For me, this is a constant process and essential to being a better husband, father, friend, artist and human. Below you'll find a section of the lyrics that state this better than I can in paragraph form. Thank you to everyone who continues to listen.

"Bite down on the chain
Bow down to no one
Destroy the ego
Radiate love
Carve out a purpose
Where there was none
Compassionately
Wipe up the blood
Remove resistance
And exit the cage
Climb to your feet
Accept your rage
It's time to reclaim
What's rightfully yours
Bite down on the chain
And bow down to no one"
