Delivering relentless brutal melodic death metal on their recently released third studio album Under The Deep (Hellstorm Recordz) to follow 2012’s Anomaly and 2010’s debut Tales From The Supermax. Montreal, QC five piece [EVERTRAPPED] has released their new video for “Embrace the End”.
Vocalist James Brookes comments on the video:
“Our latest video for “Embrace The End” goes further underneath the depths of the darker side of [Evertrapped]. However, we also went ‘Blair Witch’ style in order to add the element of raw terror that the ‘home video’ style can bring. I will also add that the track itself is about the apocalypse and the actual last hour of the end. A look at almost coming to terms with the fact that it was likely the fault of humanity and embracing the acceptance of such evil.”
Members of the band bring together their collective experience from the Montreal metal scene to create their heavy brand of death metal. The guitarists Frederick Dupuis (ex-Daggerfalls) and Vincent Benoit hammer out raw guitar while drummer Eric Lemire (ex-Apocalypsys, ex-Ice Castle) pummels the drums. Their versatile frontman James Brookes (ex-Ammonia, ex-One Final Moment, Continuum) easily alternates between strong clear vocals and low bellowing screams giving listeners the illusion of more than one vocalist. John Yates (ex-AraPacis) weaves together each song with his driving bass lines to keep the punishing tracks energy at an all time high.
Lyrics are intentionally slightly abstract to lure fans to draw their own conclusions despite a perceived understanding of the tracks. Themes for the music revolve around personal turmoil and even stringing together the image of a future where the world is on the brink of an apocalypse.
The band’s influences range from Death Metal to Melodic Death primarily, along with some classic thrash and speed metal, which explains their technicality and diversity sonically. Live, the band is a whirlwind of aggression and sonically abrasive, yet sporadically melodic vocally and instrumentally.
