Sacramento metalcore group Vice Versa are putting an industrial twist on their music with the release of their new track and video, “CAST ØUT”, which is premiering today EXCLUSIVELY on CaliberTV.
Amidst a dark atmosphere and colored lights, the band performs the song as pixelated visuals are scattered at various points throughout. Something immediately interesting is the innate “timestamp” this video has– everyone playing instruments is wearing a mask, henceforth anyone watching it will know exactly when this video was made and can easily speculate what was fueling Vice Versa‘s creative fire.
An abandonment of traditional song structure is a cornerstone here, and vocally, two styles that typically seem aurally jarring bounce back and forth pretty well. Instrumentally, there’s no shortage of riffs amidst this synth-loaded middle finger to anyone’s scrutiny or disbelief.
A muffled chanting cadence builds the song’s final moment of anticipation and ultimately gives way to its last burst of conviction and confident savagery.
