Okay, there is a bit to unpack here. Metalcore outfit Relics gives us an aggressive track, packed with crunchy riffs, melodic vocals, and some "bleghs" thrown in for good measure. And where the hell are the headstocks on the guitars!? I am both confused and delighted.
If anything came out of 2020, it is definitely some angst filled metal and rightfully deserved hatred for the state of our world and the self-blame we carry with us for things beyond our control.
"The lyrics show a fight back and forth between a single person asking if they are awake or dreaming of a better world while continuously blaming their selves for all wrong doings at the same time," says guitarist/vocalist Colton Martin. "The yin and yang of the song shows inner turmoil within each one of us. We are the Static."
