Melbourne metal artist The Overcoming Project just released his crushing new single ‘Determination’ featuring world class metal musicians such as Mike Heller of Fear Factory, Jon Howard of Threat Signal and Sergei “Efes” Fomin of FS Projekt.

Exclusively unveiled by, ‘Determination’ treats listeners to blistering fretwork, death metal-esque riffage, Heller’s pummelling rhythms, Howard’s larger than life vocals and cinematic orchestral arrangements, sure to satiate heavy music fans across the globe. This track is the second installment from the self-titled singles collection based on Dr. Mike Trubetskov’s personal journey navigating immigration, a Doctorate degree, Type I Diabetes and discovering his passion for metal music production. Each note and lyric is saturated with the urgency to keep pushing through uncertainty and fear because the reward on the other side is worth the blood, sweat and tears. 

Trubetskov, the brain behind this opus, speaks: “I really dug deep to share my most authentic experience for the listeners, from the times where I was bullied throughout my doctorate to every other challenge that life threw at me. This song is about facing my own inner demons and recognising what brought me happiness and breaking out of the conventional norms that society puts on us. I’m sharing my sincerest and desperate breakthroughs that led to massive personal growth, through which I got the chance to work with musicians who have inspired me for years, and, in turn, I hope to inspire you.”

‘Anxiety’, the first single from this introspective concept, put The Overcoming Project on the map with features on Heavy Mag, Hysteria Mag, Rock Era Mag and more. With the release of ‘Determination’ and more new music on the horizon, The Overcoming Project is sure to be revered by fans and critics across the nation.
