is beyond pleased to welcome Florida rock band THE REQUIEM
to its global roster.
To celebrate the new partnership between label and band, The Requiem are sharing not one but TWO singles today!
First up is “Diary of Mashochist,” which is a full-on rager. Kicking off with blood-curdling screams and heavy artillery riffing before shifting into melodic high gear, The Requiem pepper their song with unexpected and dramatic flourishes and nuances throughout. It’s an epic and cinematic thrill ride from back to front.
The band shares, “Mostly inspired by the legend Elizabeth Bathory, ‘Diary Of A Masochist’ speaks of someone who despises the skin they live in and does anything possible to change the way they see themselves, no matter how self-destructive or wrong it may be.”

“I’ll Be Late For My Funeral
” is an energetic amalgam of ’00s main stage Warped Tour, Neo-goth, and classic emo, with a twist all its own and without ever sounding too much like the past. Stormy guitars and layered harmonies give the song an extra dose of horsepower.
“‘I’ll Be Late For My Funeral’ is a song that tries to convey the feeling of someone who has been fighting against themselves their entire life,” the band explains. “The title reflects the sentiment that some of us wouldn’t even show up for ourselves at our own funerals from the bad habit of always running away.”
Stay tuned for more from The Requiem, because this is just the beginning of a dark, beautiful, and romantic journey!
