Happy New Music Friday everyone. While we’re sure you have a handful of records you want to listen to today you may want to wait and let us make one small suggestion first.
If you’re looking for heavy, hair-rasing hardcore that packs a punch similar to Knocked Loose, Sanction and Chamber, look no further than Typecaste’s reckless four-track EP Between Life.
Released this morning via Flatspot Records, the brutal, pit-inducing offering is bound to make you feel some type of way as it races through barbaric beatdown riffs as well lyrics about death, meditation, hallucinations and more.
Today, to offer more insight into the bruising new record, The Noise is excited to give readers an exclusive track by track walkthrough of Typecaste’s brand new EP.
For a glimpse inside the band’s impressive release, be sure to check out the track by track writeup from the Easy Coast outfit below. Afterward, make sure to pick up a copy of Between Life and grab tickets to see Typecaste out on tour with Sanction, SeeYouSpaceCowboy and Vamachara here.
1. Memento Mori - The saying “Memento Mori” has been something I’ve been telling myself for years now. Probably since I was 16 or 17. It means “remember you will die.” It helps me realize I’m going to die anyway when I want to and appreciate life when I don’t want to die. The track reflects on when I wanted to die the most and where I am at today.
2. Traverse - This track was my best effort in trying to explain the feeling while meditating and coming out of it. I feel it can be applied to other aspects in life because it’s about pushing yourself and letting things go crazy you can’t control.
3. Hypnagogic Hallucination - Hypnagogic hallucinations are something I sort of seek out every night before I go to bed. They are basically your dreams right before you fall asleep. I try to sit through it as long as I can in hopes I can lucid dream, but never get quite that far. I usually see ghostly faces up close to my face which was what started the idea for the song.
4. Under The Wreath - I wrote this following a mutual friend’s funeral. I knew the person as someone who was incredibly positive to be around, well-liked and always happy. We weren’t that close, but I felt he was a great person. The songs about seeing someone inside a casket and just knowing it’s not them anymore, but what they have done for your life or taught you. It’s also me hoping I can be a positive force in someone else’s life when I go. I feel this song shows some of my insecurity in being a good friend, but is for my friends nonetheless.
