WORLD BEYOND: REVOLT | NEW VOCAL SINGLE COMING 02.02.2022


Revolt becomes vocal. Featuring three new songs: Nobody is Safe, Revolt and From Chaos, this is our first release of 2022. In the upcoming single dedicated to the final chapter of Mental Omega, we touch upon the subject of the freedom of thought and freedom of speech in modern age. With our privacy being slowly but surely taken away by forces we cannot control, as it gets harder to navigate in the never ending stream of information, one could raise a question: just how much of our thoughts come from our personal experience and how often our views are being swayed by public opinion and social media algorithms? Can we even discern between our natural desires and those forced upon us?

Nobody is Safe is a song about being defenceless in the face of oppression. Spending days in isolation waiting for a knock on your door. Paranoid and dramatic, it features a piano performance of one of the musical themes from the original song Revolt. The choice of instrument is a reference to the use of piano in the film Schindler's List. The choir is lamenting "nobody is safe anymore now" as male vocals are calling to warn others while there's still time, this song is a set up to the alternative metal piece that comes after.

Revolt, previously available as an instrumental in the second World Beyond album Nobody Asked For This So I Did It, gets a redesigned intro with Nicholas Standing's lead guitar setting the mood from the start. The message is simple: don't let anyone control your thoughts. There are forces that will take the best in you and turn it against you without you even noticing. Even when everything feels okay, it could be you're only being held hostage in your comfort zone oblivious, disarmed and unprepared. This is the angriest track of the bunch, with loud and punchy drums cutting through the powerful bass and lead guitar performance by Nicholas Standing. Featuring additional female vocals by Maritza Vilibic and an emotional screaming part by Nick.

We all come From Chaos. Whether you trace back the origins of mankind to heavy chemical elements born in the cores of collapsing stars or the very human history from our tribal feuds to world-scale military conflicts. This is our fate, to come into existence and shape the world around us until we fade away, reborn in the hearts of new generations. In the synthetic hybrid blend of the instruments the melody is born. With energetic string arpeggios following the rhythmic electronic pattern, vocals and piano enter manifesting what it's all about, repeating over and over again an octave higher and finally leading up to the climax with the original theme of Remnant brought back as the source of undying hope and the will to move forward.

These three songs form a complete musical work with the beginning, the middle part and the closure, and will be available on 2.2.2022 on all major stores and streaming services worldwide.
