Life Renewed debuts their first single ‘By Faith’ feat. Alvin Triplett of BoughtXBlood and Nick West. A project founded on the solid ground of faith that musician and producer Rob Volkoff believes in and began. A plan of music expression that focuses on life experiences and takes them to the heavier sounds of music manifestation. Debuting their first single ‘By Faith’, Rob Volkoff has stepped into the realm of his own declaration of what he believes with his Passion Project. Having worked with several other Metalcore bands, it was time to release his vision through his own platform. ‘By Faith’ is Volkoff‘s first from his up and coming EP “Launching From Ground Zero” due out sometime in late 2020.

Rob Volkoff comments: ‘By Faith’ features the vocalist Alvin Triplett of the Christian Metalcore Project BoughtXBlood from the Lynchburg, VA area with his harsh vocals and Nicholas West on clean vocals. This was the first song written in 2014 with the inspiration of roommate and clean vocal feature Nick West. This is song number four of a seven-song EP called “Launching From Ground Zero” . This EP encompasses the concept of a person who has struggled in life and has formed opinions, thoughts and feelings that have affected the person’s life negatively. This song, along with the concept of the whole EP, is a journey of reflecting throughout all of life’s experiences to discover and bring into fruition some of the lessons on how a person can find and truly possess faith – to grow, evolve and become a person with purpose. ‘By Faith’ was the first completed song off the EP and was the foundation of the whole EP and encompasses all the elements of the EP musically & contextually”‘

Finnish symphonic power metallers Everfrost have unleashed the new official video ‘Die Young’ off their latest album “Winterider” released in September 2019 via Rockshots Records.

Watch the video below.

The band comments: “‘Winterider’ is an album about battling through life’s hardships. ‘Die Young’ is a song that pop star Kesha put out way back when we were basically just out of high school starting our own lives. It carries one of the biggest middle fingers to the struggles in life, proclaiming instead to make the most of the night and party like we’re going to die young. We realized an explosive metal cover of this would be perfect for the second half of the album as the story becomes very dark. So that is just what we did! As many people know we embarked recently on our first voyage to our holy land Japan. While there we had our own version of the endless winter we ironically presented in ‘Winterider’ when a well-known disease put the world in a great panic. Before things became dire we made the most of the trip and had the time of our lives among the fear and uncertainty, just like this song proclaims. With this single we want to share this adventure and the positivity this song brings along with a music video bringing you back to Akihabara, Japan with Everfrost!”

DIie Young is also available as digital single.
