Western Australian band Remission is here to plow through your headphones like a dumptruck full of anvils, thanks to their new single "Remission". The single comes alongside a music video filmed on tour with Arch Enemy, while the single itself is from the band's forthcoming album Impermanence.
"Thematically, 'Castor' delves into the idea of not knowing one's own power," said Remission vocalist and guitarist Jacson Robb. "How the human psyche has the capacity to both take a detrimental hold in moments of weakness, and also overcome such moments to become stronger and uncover the true power that lies within the mind – metaphorically depicted by a tale between the two well-known celestial and mythical beings Castor and Pollux.
"Written in a manner that displays both an innate jealousy from the mortal Castor towards his brother's bestowed divinity, and a perspective of reassurance and guidance from Pollux. Set against a sonic background that balances aggression and melody, the instrumentation provides a perfect foundation from which this story flows.”
Impermanence will be out sometime this June via Blood Blast Distribution.
