Hot off a collab with UPON A BURNING BODY mainman Danny Leal, THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE are here to prove that trap metal isn’t a trend and neither are they. Continuing to prove their unique approach to a fresh genre, THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE are “Runnin’ Through The 666” on their latest single, blending metalcore with the swagger of trap!
Melodic hardcore sensibility (think LIONHEART, STICK TO YOUR GUNS, NO BRAGGING RIGHTS) meshes with a healthy dose of brutal metalcore & undeniably catchy rap verses from vocalist Jacob Pedersen to create a song that showcases the several facets of the groups creativity.
“While we’ve focused our recent 2 singles on the #TRAPMETAL movement, our brand new single “Runnin Through The 666” could almost be placed as melodic hardcore!” vocalist Jacob Pederson breaks down. “This is the sound we started this band on, and even though we’re all about evolving with our sound, we will never forget where we came from. This one is for our day one fans!”
The video for “Runnin’ Through the 666” premiered on September 18 through New Noise Magazine; it showcases the band’s live energy and the flare for the dramatic that can be heard in all of their songs. It’s undeniably an unconventional and sometimes silly approach, but THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE‘s roots in hardcore are evident in their music and in their dedication to their fans!
If this latest release is any indication, its clear that the #trapmetal movement is moving ahead at full force with TWOS (as they are known to their fans) quickly carving out their place alongside bands like Dropout Kings as the leaders of the genre.
