Volumes Premiere “Weighted” Video

Volumes have premiered a new video for their new single “Weighted.” You can check that out below:

Michael Barr commented:

“This song is about self-doubt and the shortcomings that come with any type of success. It’s about the ups and the downs in life and the interpersonal and irrational conversation you have about convincing yourself into doing things.”

Raad Soudani added:

“It’s definitely a fun song. It’s a blend of heavy instrumentation with vibrant production with chunky guitar groove on the verse, with a playful vocal melody on top. It’s also got an in-your-face, aggressive catchy hook and a bit of a carefree, middle finger attitude to it.”

So, that’s the gist of the song. Hope you guys like it. Hope you guys are staying well, staying safe and staying home. Much love from Volumes. Peace.”

Lucifena Teams Up With Volumes & Winds Of Plague Members On New Song “Depression”

Lucifena, aka Stephanie Sanson (ex-You Only Live Once), has premiered a new video for her new song “Depression.” This track features Myke Terry (Volumes) and Lucifena’s frequent collaborator Morgoth Beatz, aka Michael Montoya (Winds Of Plague).

Lucifena commented:

“This type of song is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. It’s not a trap-metal beat — it’s real instruments and it brings me back to my roots.

This song is about when you can’t help but feel like you’re descending and trying to defeat the low. The world is in a state where it’s economically collapsing and it’s also mentally affecting everyone. Depression is something everyone goes through and it can destroy you, if you let it. This song is a reflection of that external and internal struggle.”

Montoya added:

“I wanted us to make a song that had the vibe of a full band instead of doing a hip-hop metal-kinda blend. I wrote the instrumental for this song awhile ago and even recorded Myke‘s guest vocal first. I showed Lucifena the song and she loved it. Just because you’re a solo artist does mean you can’t make music that sounds like a band. My guess is a lot more solo artists from the alternative hip-hop world are going to be doing this more and more.”
