Progressive metalcore act A Titan, A Deity formed back in 2016 and hail from Birmingham/London, UK. Since forming they have supported the likes of Monuments which inspired them to create their debut EP in 2018 and following that release they have gone onto support other big acts such as Novelists and The Contortionist. Now in 2020 they are back with some new material, 'Lilith' was the previous first new song released and now they are preparing to unleash their second single 'Genesis' which is due for release July 10th 2020.
The concept and lyrical themes behind 'Genesis' are based around a semi sci-fi and religious concept and tells the story of an interstellar being that was created at the dawn of the universe, who takes control of the mind of someone on Earth in the present day to act as his prophet, to spread his will and change Earth to his image.
Throughout the song the lyrics shift perspectives between this being, and his prophet and the psychic symbiotic relationship that develops between the two.
'Genesis' is a colossal offering which portrays their interesting and dynamic sound, with chugging hard-hitting riffs weaved with ambient melodic clean sections and vocals, creating a nice balance and contrast with the heavier breakdowns and aggressive vocals. The transitions are well-executed with the end result creating a massive crushing impact.
