Solidarity

Netherland based Melodic Metalcore band Undawn last year on 16th of November pelted out a jaw dropping EP, “Solidarity”. The band which is based out of Dedemsvaart, Overijssel, Netherlands, had the chance to open up for major bands like Soulfly and Textures, in the past. The band describes the EP as “SOLIDARITY breaks through your negative patterns. In an era in which our ego and individualism prevail, we demand the maximum from ourselves. Solidarity is about, burden that you can experience with eternal doubts about decisions, living in your comfort zone and being stuck in the past. Sometimes you don’t even realize it, but it hinders your further development.”

The EP contains 5 tracks all under 5 minute. Melodic Metalcore as a genre much identifiable with its knee jerk hooks, off time signatures and a plethora of polymorphic rhythms, has always had a defined pattern. What becomes important here is to stay in the genre, yet have enough experimental appetite during the songwriting process to make it stand out. So without further ado let’s jump to it.

‘Implode,’ the new music video from melodic metalcore band Undawn can be watched below. The track appears on their upcoming EP “Solidarity” which will be released on Nov. 16th. About the song the band says the following:

Implode is about the pressure that society puts on one man’s life. From the outside everything seems to be allright, but you can’t see what’s happening inside. It helps to speak out your thoughts:

“you can’t heal what you never reveal”. Our message with this song is to open up!

Those three words we often realize too late, they were never said or not said often enough. Three words captured in one single word through this song ‘Forever’.

The video deals with the impact of losing a loved one and how life, all too often taken for granted, takes an unimaginable and irreversible turn. Along to the rhythm of this track, becoming increasingly heavier and more powerful until it reaches its climax with a tempestuous guitar solo, the scenery depicts the storm of emotions and level of devastation while coming to terms with one´s loss and the realization that things will never be as they once were or could have been …. and the words which were never said. Three simple words, often condemned as sounding cheesy or a cliché and possibly not deemed to be a theme for a metal band to address …. until disaster strikes and one realizes how important certain people were in one’s life, how one’s life was bound to that of the other, blaming oneself over and over again for having missed all those opportunities …. wishing for one more opportunity to be able to express these three simple words.
