NEW ALBUM MATRIPHAGY COMING OCTOBER 2ND VIA EARACHE RECORDS
FFO: Code Orange, Korn, Slipknot
Things are heating up in the Tallah camp as we edge closer to the release of their highly anticipated full length album Matriphagy, out on October 2nd 2020 via Earache Records. It’s been a wild ride for Tallah thus far, with the band revealing both music videos and concept videos to really immerse onlookers into connecting with the story. In a bid to continue to disturb, shock and electrify fans – Tallah are here to boast yet another music video that reveals another part of the tale of Matriphagy. That video is L.E.D.!
Justin Bonitz – Vocals
Max Portnoy – Drums
Derrick Schneider – Guitar
Andrew Cooper – Bass
Tallah’s frontman Justin Bonitz reveals that “L.E.D. is my personal favourite song on Matriphagy. To me, this is the essence of that old school, 90s 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.”
Presenting yet more of the twisted narrative underlining their forthcoming concept album Matriphagy, the act set to #MAKEMETALDISTURBINGAGAIN features Youtube sensation Justin Bonitz and second generation drummer Max Portnoy at the songwriting helm.
Justin further explains where this song sits within the concept: “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.”
