March 28 — Independent hard rock/metal outfit Repentance opened the week by premiering a new music video.
The band debuted the video for its new single, ‘Down In The Water’ Monday. The song is the third single from the band’s EP, Volume I – Reborn, which was released in 2021 through Noble Demon. The record also produced the singles, ‘No Innocence‘ and ‘Reborn’.
The video is a relatively simple presentation. It features the band performing its new single on a specially lit soundtrack and crosses that with footage of a man sitting in a chair, holding a bottle of alcohol. Various editing and lighting effects are used throughout the presentation to enhance to viewing experience and the impact of the song’s arrangement.
The arrangement featured in the new single is a heavy, intense composition. The combination of the screams alongside the equally intense instrumentation immediately makes the song in whole comparable to works from the likes of Dy Kill Logic, Hatebreed, and Terror.
Guitarist/founder Shaun Glass talked about the song’s arrangement in a prepared statement.
“When writing the new material I really wanted to make sure each song had their own identity yet fit into the sound of the band,” Glass said. “With this track the main verse riff set the pace for a dark heavy groove that doesn’t let up and brings the listener in a twisted journey…[front man] Adam’s [Gilley] Adams King-Kong-sized vocals put the stamp on this song and also this is my first song that I actually also handled the guitar solo which is a nice tribute to Dimebag Darrell (Pantera) & Jeff Hanneman (Slayer) – RIP.”
The song’s lyrical theme centers on the battle to overcome addiction, according to Gilley.
“The song is about trying to overcome the struggles from within and ultimately succumbing to the demons of disease in the end,” Gilley said.
