Ohio-based progressive metal band Iravera released their new single “Heavy” and its lyric video. The title does not disappoint as the track provides a diverse onslaught of djent riffs, harsh screams, and adventurous breakdowns.
About the new single, vocalist Nick Figley stated:
“It’s a song about losing someone in your life that meant the world to you. This could be a death in the family or a bad breakup but either way, we all feel that emptiness inside that seems like it will never go away because that person isn’t around anymore.”
Established in 2019, the band’s energetic and explosive sound revolves around the talents of Nick Figley (vocals), Mikey Wrightson (harsh vocals), Alex Finch (bass), Shane Grim (guitar), and Tyler Bailey (guitar). Due to the diversity of their influences, their music puts the ever increasing list of metal sub-genres to the test while reaching depths of melody and intensity.
Dipping from the well of universally loved grunge bands to the technical brutality of contemporary progressive metal and rock bands such as Monuments and Issues, Iravera has unveiled a hooky, massive, “punch to the face” oeuvre in just 6 months since their conception leaving fans and peers anxiously waiting for what holds for them in the future.
