Escapement are a new band formed by vocalist Johnny Ray (3 Headed Snake) and keyboardist Alex Nasla (Witherfall, Helion Prime) after meeting on the famous 70k Metal Cruise and throwing musical ideas off of each other during pandemic boredom. After a few months of reworking the songs and adding creative touches, they are ready to show off their debut single ‘Feed’.
Escapement share some details on the conception of the single:
“It was the first song that Nasla and Ray worked on together. It started out small and took many months because of both of their busy schedules, but eventually, it grew, Ray sent the original song to Nasla who wrote keys for it. At that point, Ray had a wild idea to actually have Nasla fly to Florida, and work on a video together with Thomas Crane. It organically came together and was a great success! We believe fans will be refreshed by the heavy riffs, mixed with catchy memorable choruses and amazing solos.”
Slow, heavy and menacing music which sits as the perfect base for Ray’s powerful vocal as he lays down a soulful performance easily matched by the interesting musical arrangement of keys and guitar. The track flows between intense heavy phrases with ballad like verses with Ray letting loose with lung filled screams before a scorching guitar solo and dazzling keyboard solo.
