Miami metal band AVAT have premiered their new song “Faith in Flames
” at Metal Insider. Listen here
“‘Faith in Flames’ perfectly captures both physically and emotionally how we have felt during the pandemic, connecting to it more and more as time passes,” the band shares. “The song is about placing your faith into a person who either intentionally or negligently mistreats that faith, and shows no care, respect, or remorse for it. There’s truly nothing like melodic hooks over abrasive heavy riffs to eloquently convey how we have been feeling during this pandemic.”
Note: “Faith in Flames” will be listenable here on Friday, March 19.
AVAT — comprised of Roland Velazquez (vocals), Jonathan Rivera (bass), Dimitri Anchipolovsky (guitar), Kevin Stewart (guitar), and Romulo Bernal (drums) — formed in 2015 and have continued to dole out charging riffs, bewilderingly catchy leads, and soaring vocals. The band was described by Revolver as “hard-hitting,” and fans of Killswitch Engage, Trivium, and Protest the Hero will find themselves magnetically drawn to the band’s hooks, their incorporation of their Miami roots into their music, and their blend of progressive and metalcore styles.
Last year, the band shared the lyric video for their new song “Dead or Alive” over at New Noise. Watch + listen here.
