Independent metal band Trumbiten debuted its new single this week.
The band — Tommy Arngren and his son Adam Arngren — released its new single ‘”Fear Me’ Thursday. The song is available to stream and download here.
The song’s musical arrangement is a heavy, up-tempo composition whose driving guitar, bass and drums create a whole whose style and sound that immediately lends itself to comparisons to works from bands, such as In Flames, Soilwork and Amon Amarth.
The song’s vocals are provided by Kandia front woman Nya Campos Cruz. Her vocal sound and delivery style, interestingly enough, bears some similarity to that of legendary singer/guitarist Joan Jett. The coupling of that vocal delivery sound and style and the song’s more modern metal musical approach makes for a song that is accessible in its own unique fashion.
The elder Arngren talked about the song’s creation and working with Cruz in a recent interview.
“It’s really awesome that social media, gig-platforms, digital tools and communication tools enable musicians to connect and to create music together in this way” said Tommy.
“This song is a result from a great collaboration between musicians, who have never met face-2-face, from Sweden, Los Angeles and Portugal,” he added. “Trumbiten had a plan to release an original song early next year, but the lyrics and the music idea started to form early June 2020 and two months later we were ready to plan for an upcoming release. It was so cool and inspiring to finalize the song in collaboration with Nya and Evan. Really amazing!!”
The lyrical theme featured in ‘Fear Me’ comes across as a statement of confidence and self-assurance. This is inferred as Cruz sings early on, “I’m not to blame/I just play my game/I challenge your mind…I’m danger/I am fear/And you will know I’m here…I’ll be right there in your dreams/You’re gonna fear me.” Some of the lyrics here are difficult to decipher without a lyrics sheet to reference, but from what can be understood, it would seem that the song’s lyrical theme is as noted. The song’s second verse continues in similar fashion as its predecessor, leading even more to the supposition that this is more a song whose lyrical theme is meant to deliver a message of self-assurance and being confident in one’s own self.
‘Fear Me’ was produced by Evan Rodaniche (Cage9).
