The latest release for New England metalcore act Fathom Farewell is the lyric video for the fourth single “Nameless City” off their upcoming EP “Kraken”. The band took their favorite five tracks from a pool of demos that would cohesively work together to come up with the new record and have high expectations for its reception as they explain: 

“Well, we’ve had the great fortune to perform the new stuff a few times for a live audience and let’s just say they never went even half this hard for the old material. I’ve never been more confident in any musical release I’ve been a part of in my almost 2 decades playing music. They’re gonna love it as much as we do.”

The single “Nameless City” was entirely inspired by an HP Lovecraft short story of the same name.  This story focuses on a lone explorer traversing the ruins of an ancient city with no name. The farther he dives into the city, the more devious it seems, growing narrower, and damper, and darker until the explorer notices large reptiles emerging from the darkness while the light dies. The story’s imagery and environment description comes alive with heavy breakdowns and intense vocals.  

The writing process for Fathom Farewell is very simple and streamlined. Vocalist Alex Cohen writes all lyrics; guitarist Steve Almon wrote the instrumentals for this past EP, presented it to the band and they laid everything down seamlessly. Moving forward, new guitarist James Frost, bassist Dustin Black, guitarist Chantz Mello and drummer Casey Albiero will be contributing instrumentals. In order to alleviate pressure, they stay far ahead of each release in terms of writing. Lyrical inspiration comes from Cohen’s environment, things that concern or inspire him to speak out on certain subjects whether it be mental health or oppression or even just a good ol’ concept track like this single.  

Those looking for a new take on metalcore should find Fathom Farewell of interest, especially those with an interest in August Burns Red, Coheed & Cambria, and System of a Down.

Fathom Farewell brings depth to the rock/metal genre beyond the confines of its articulate instrumentation and vocal presence. Addressing topics from humanity and its relationships to the grave consequences human nature causes our world, frontman Alex Cohen demands through his delivery that each listener lend a close ear and a willingness toward self-reflection.  This fiery passion results in a refined rock act with the potential to be the voice of change, but with the live thrill and precision of a modern heavy metal act. In conjunction with exceptional work ethic and persistence, it’s no wonder the band has swiftly made a name for itself throughout New England, having earned the opportunities to support Sevendust’s 20th-anniversary tour, along with area dates with Issues, The Devil Wears Prada, Volumes, I Prevail, Currents, and many more.  The band has also performed four times at the Vans Warped Tour in MA since forming in 2014, three times at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and made appearances at Rock and Shock Festival. Following the release of the 2019 “Consume The Earth” EP, the band has accrued over 100k streams across Spotify and Apple Music.  Bolstered by recent additions to the newly completed lineup and with upcoming new material produced by Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives/Riviera), with assistance from Extreme Management Group, Fathom Farewell aims to support this release with vigorous touring and marketing in hopes of carrying awareness of its message to the rest of its home country and eventually to the world, as all of “this planet is our home”.

Now with three EPs under their belt over four years “Consume The Earth” (2019), “Decomposition” (2017), Drowning Limits (2015), the band is ready to present their next EP entitled “Kraken” on October 22nd, 2021 via Blood Blast Distribution.
