Bucketlist is proud to premiere the video single “Grimspeak” from Montreal metal-core act Fayne. “Grimspeak” is the first single released off of their upcoming record Journals, set to be released November 30th, 2018 on all streaming outlets and in CD format. Watch below.
“The video for “Grimspeak” is conceptualized around a storyline following two brothers, the younger of which enduring the grieving process from losing his older sibling and going through a mixture of emotions including denial, paranoia, regret, and sadness. This theme plays a part in the bigger picture in the message that the album attempts to convey; the mindfulness of death, understanding that everyone reflects upon their life and its inevitable end in their own way, and the beauty or freedom, for lack of a better word, in accepting such. We’ve summarized these themes into one phrase: The Last 5 Minutes Of Your Life.” – FAYNE
“Grimspeak” was directed, filmed, and edited by Les Orphelins.
Fayne is a progressive metal/metalcore act based out Montreal, Canada. The main goal for this quintet is delivering their own blend of heavy-driven drums with crushing guitar riffs and basslines, topped off with a powerful mix of clean and screamed vocals.
The band began to make noise in their scene as early as 2004, releasing debut EP You Took It All Away followed by a second release in 2006, Delivering The Final Blow. It was during those times that they earned their stripes playing in their hometown and across Eastern Canada, which in turn granted them the opportunities to play with bands such as Alexisonfire, Underoath, and Hopesfall.
2 years after the release of their second EP, the band chose to take a hiatus from the endeavor until 2013, from which they began writing and recording their 3rd EP, The Queen Of Kings, released in November of 2014 and was mixed by founding member and guitarist Alex Gonzalez and mastered by Alan Douches of West Side Music (Between the Buried and Me, Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die).
As they began to write, record and conceptualize what was to become their first full-length album, the search for a singer became a pressing issue. In the summer of 2017, that search came to an end when fellow Montreal metal musician and enthusiast, Justin Furtado(ex- Red Skies, currently in Feels Like Home), joined Fayne as the new voice to front the upcoming full-length record, Journals. The vocals were written in only 2 months. The singing was recorded and finalized in house by guitarist Alex Gonzalez and Furtado, and the creative input was given from drummer Carlo De Iuliis and guitarist Nick Fazioli, and bassist Chris Kasp. Journals is Fayne’s newest and strongest release to date, mixed and mastered by Jamie King of The Basement Recording NC (The Contortionist, Between the Buried and Me), and is set to release on November 30th, 2018, on all major streaming platforms worldwide as well as in physical CD format.
An album release show in their hometown of Montreal will be taking place December 8th, 2018 with opening performances by Lungless(Toronto), Watch for Wolves(Montreal), and Martlet(Montreal), where physical copies of the new album with be available for the first time.
2019 will be a new year for Fayne to spread their new sound to the masses of metal fans of all sorts, with something both original yet paying tribute to the classic attributes of their genre. Be on the lookout. A new sound is coming.
