Track: Metalcore Four Piece Fates Messenger Unveil Thunderous Debut Single ‘Scars’

Formed by members of legendary hardcore / thrash outfits Above All, Romeo Must Die and Dishonour The Crown, thrash/metalcore four-piece Fates Messenger have shared their debut single ‘Scars’. Recorded, mixed and mastered by the band themselves, this is the first single taken from their upcoming debut EP due later this year

With previous individual experiences of touring Europe, being a prominent force in the European metal festival circuit and supporting some of the biggest names in the metal world; Korn, Fear Factory, Entombed and Pitchshifter to name a few, Fates Messenger know what it takes to go toe to toe with some of the biggest names in heavy music and are using this experience to give the hardcore metal world a new name to be reckoned with.

Discussing the lyrical themes behind the track, vocalist and lyricist Tony Maddocks explains: 

“The lyrical theme to this song came to me while I was reading a heartbreaking story in the media about a teenager who had taken their life due to the ongoing bullying and abuse they had suffered online and physically within their social circles. A cruel and sad reflection on just how inhumane and vicious humans can be in this harsh new world which we have created, where there’s no escape from this kind of mental and physical abuse and how the smallest comment can have a long lasting effect on a person’s life whether it be face to face or online.”

A track that hits and hits hard. The solid slab of drumming courtesy of Will Romain is enough on its own but when packed with the incendiary riffing of Ron D and psychotic vocals from Tony Maddocks that all float on the grinding bass of Paul Fletcher you have one hell of a debut track. This is what happens when talent experience and chemistry mix, an explosion of pure metalcore brilliance.

Along with the lead single ‘Scars’, the band have also shared the menacingly heavy ‘Bonechapel’, which takes what ‘Scars’ started and hits even harder from the very start. With a riff that scrapes its way through hell, and pummelling drums it’s another hugely strong track that will introduce the band to the many new fans they will surely gain. Keep your eyes and ears on these guys.
