Crossfaith’s Terufumi Tamano Remixes Tallah’s “Overconfidence”

Tallah have shared a new remix of their song “Overconfidence.” This version of the track was remixed by Crossfaith’s Terufumi Tamano.

Tamano commented:

“This is a new chaos. I was captivated by how dramatically insane ‘Overconfidence‘ was when I listened to it for the first time. Listen to this song until you will get musically overdosed.”

Tallah added:

“We’re really humbled at how much Crossfaith appreciated our music enough to remix it. They definitely brought their own raw energy into it and gave it some new life. We totally encourage anyone who is into our stuff to have fun with it and make it unique to how it speaks to you.”

As previously reported, Tallah‘s new album “Matriphagy” will be released on October 2.

Tallah Premiere “L.E.D.” Music Video

Tallah have premiered a new video for their new song “L.E.D.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Matriphagy,” which will be released on October 2.

Frontman Justin Bonitz commented:

“‘L.E.D.‘ is my personal favorite song on ‘Matriphagy‘. To me, this is the essence of that old-school, Nineties nu-metal fused with 2020 hardcore, and some sludge. We have rapping, turntables, driving guitars, groovy drums, and some funky-ass bass, all over a weird time signature. The track is pretty weird and unpredictable as a whole. Vocally, I love to sing this song! The chorus is bound to get people pumped up, and the final breakdown should be illegal.

In terms of ‘Matriphagy‘, this song takes place right after ‘Placenta.’ Lyrically, it represents a relapse (non-drug/alcohol-related). With ‘Matriphagy‘ being a concept album, all the songs flow into each other, especially the lyrics. The themes build and revolve around the other tracks, and ‘L.E.D.‘ relies heavily on the messages from ‘Placenta‘ and ‘Overconfidence.’

If ‘Overconfidence‘ is about realizing your flaws/who is controlling you, and ‘Placenta‘ is about cutting loose from that, ‘L.E.D.‘ is about being a coward, turning back/giving in, getting angry you were not strong enough to deal with the situation, but blaming it all on someone else instead of taking responsibility for your own failure.”

Tallah have premiered a new video for their new song “Placenta.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Matriphagy,” which will be released on October 2. Frontman Justin Bonitz commented:

“Too many people fit themselves into the mold. Heck, there are people who think they are being ‘unique’, but in reality, that ‘uniqueness’ is just another mold, part of another small community, and I am sick of the pride and delusion. I am tired of seeing people give in to the desires and comforts of others. It is time to cut the fucking cord and be your own person with your own beliefs, own goals, own dreams!”

Tallah Premiere “Red Light” Music Video

Tallah have premiered a new video for their new song “Red Light.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Matriphagy,” which will be released on October 2.

Justin Bonitz commented:

“‘Red Light‘ is sheer chaos. It is a madman rambling. Unlike some of the other songs on ‘Matriphagy‘, the concept behind ‘Red Light‘ is very much obscured in a delirious fog. The story is there, the themes are there, but everything is jumbled together by the character’s stream of consciousness, guilt, and wild emotions. Between the angry, driving drums, odd time signatures, operatic vocals, rapping, villainous theatrics, and chunky guitar/bass, the message almost gets lost.

The overall point of the song is, ‘It’s time to stop.’ Whether it be a toxic thought pattern, delusion, addiction, depression, insecurity, trying to control each other, whatever, the theme of the song is, ‘It’s time to stop.’ Stop getting distracted by yourself and all the little, screwed up issues you have, and look at the big picture. Your house was built on quicksand, and you are going under.”

Tallah Premiere “The Silo” Music Video

Tallah, the band featuring Max Portnoy, the son of ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, have premiered a new video for their new song “The Silo.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Matriphagy,” which will be released on October 2.

Max Portnoy said the following about the song:

“‘The Silo‘ is the lightest track on the album, and the first time we’ve experimented with using more dynamics in our music. This song is a good example of showcasing what else we can do with our sound aside from the raw heaviness displayed in all our other tracks.”

Vocalist Justin Bonitz added the following about the album:

“‘Matriphagy‘ is a concept album about how an overprotective mother pushes her son to the edge of insanity through psychological and physical abuse. Having spent two decades trapped inside a glorified prison, and after some failed rescue/escape attempts, the son, in a state of heavy delirium, does the unforgivable to free himself from his mother’s wicked hold.”
