LYED - Velvet Nightfall

***LYED exclusive song premiere***
Ooooooo baby! Tonight, an hour before the Zegema Beach Records Zampler #9 compilation is released (linked here), I am delighted to share LYED's new track "Velvet Nightfall" with you. This track can be found on Zampler #9 and will appear on LYED's upcoming 'The Immolated Earth' 12"LP via Zegema Beach Records, Middle Man Records and Contrition Records this July. The 9 songs on the LP follow the line drawn by "Velvet Nightfall", with some songs straying from the norm and wandering either towards the heavier or melodic side.
"Velvet Nightfall" draws from a myriad of influences but the primary would likely be chaotic, metallic hardcore in the vein of The Bled. It opens with a cool riff but after 10 seconds the drums switch up and that amazingness is all I seem to be able to hear. By 23 seconds the vocals kick in, screaming with a slightly gruff edge, making them screamy without being high pitched. At 1:30 the song reaches its first summit and takes a few, brief seconds to take in the view before plummeting downward at 2:17 with a slow, eerie, dark and crushing fall that explodes on impact at 2:51 and goes ballistic for the remainder of the track. Oooo baby. Wait till you hear the other 8 songs! Wowza!!! You can stream "Velvet Nightfall" above or by opening a new tab here.
