‘Mayfly’ Release ‘Jihad’ (feat. Darin Keim of Staple) Lyric Video


mayfly 2015Mayfly has released their political statement through a new lyric video for the song ‘Jihad’ (feat. Darin Keim of Staple). The track comes from the band’s debut EP “Vereor Deus, Non Dogma”, which was released on Feb. 11th. through Voluminous Records. The lyric video can be watched in the clip below.

Formed in November of 2011, Mayfly has seen several iterations including a variety of line-up changes. However, throughout these changes, the group has been creating steadily more immersive and unique music the likes of which has been taking their local scene of Troy, Ohio by storm. In one part, this is due no doubt to the variety with which they reach out and snare the listener’s ear.

On one hand, Mayfly has faster, more aggressive tracks like ‘Skylights,’ which blend 90’s style hard rock and hardcore with more modern metalcore and melodic elements (think As Cities Burn meets Refused for a drink, but gets into a bar fight with Underoath). On the other hand, tracks like ‘Jihad’ heir more towards the radio-friendly side, incorporating more melodic elements and crooned, clean singing, a la Dead Poetic or Funeral for a Friend flirting with a Deftones song. While those tracks represent either extreme of the band’s spectrum, ‘Eternal Respiration’ looms in the dead center, with fast-paced and pummeling instrumentation that walks hand-in-hand with softly sung (and the occasional belted refrain) vocals.
