Metalcore act I, OF THE STORM has released its newest single, the tastefully blended, cyberpunk-influenced track “Cataclysm”. Musically the song is a fantastic blend of ambient tones and heavy-hitting metalcore sensibilities, sure to find appeal across multiple genres.
Lyrically, the song is inspired by real-life situations of overwhelming emotions. Of the track, vocalist Damian Snapp says, “I wrote the lyrics for Cataclysm about the severe abandonment issues and overwhelming emotions that often come from the fallout of toxic and abusive relationships by comparing them to a cataclysmic ending of the world. The lyrics are inspired by real-life situations that other members in the band have gone through in their life and I felt like I could also relate those to my own experiences.”
“Cataclysm” sees Damian Snapp (vocals), joined by Brandon Beaulieu (Guitar Vocals) and Shota Nishimura of Design The Skyline (Guitar), as well as Connor Mitchener of I Set My Friends On Fire (Bass), and Mario Sanchez (Drums) come together as the heavy genre-bending force of I, OF THE STORM . Along with the single, the 5-piece is excited to unveil its new music video for “Cataclysm” captured by Zack Perez from Astral Media. “We wanted to create an introductory video for our project that really captured the energy of our music and live performance,” said guitarist and vocalist Brandon Beaulieu. “Zack Perez did an amazing job at capturing that! It was a really fun shoot filled with sick hangs and a lot of Whiteclaws and Mike’s Harder Lemonades! Shout out to our friend Andrew Kappas at Monarch Studios for letting us make a mess, and shoutout to our friends in ScytheGang666 for stopping by and hanging out on set!”
“Cataclysm” is now available across all major streaming platforms. You can listen to it on Spotify, or watch the video on YouTube below.
