PREMIERE: BLINDWOLF RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE “POISON WELL” (TRACK ANALYSIS)

Southern California’s newest addition to metalcore, blindwolf, make a hard-hitting entrance on their debut single “Poison Well”.

Taking a simplistic approach, the song’s playthrough-style music video portrays blindwolf‘s respective members in the lesser-seen side of their element and attests to the world’s volatile and unprecedented times that served as the catalyst for the Anaheim trio’s formation. 

A crushing riff is the central spark for the song’s instrumental explosion; fast-paced drums pound beneath visceral anger and dissonance, and desperation echoes louder and louder as self-reflection regresses into self-loathing with lyrics like “the choices that I have made built the monster you see today.”

“I can’t stop drinking from the bottom of a poison well,” screams vocalist Nathan Mead“Poison Well”‘s literal narrative plunges into depths of alcoholism and feeling hopelessly stuck in a routine that inevitably ends in one’s demise.

That’s not to say listeners’ ability to connect with the song stops there, though. Those who have personally endured or watched a loved one endure a habitual cycle of self-destruction will find “Poison Well” extending a greater sense of relatability through a sound that’s comfortable to heavy music enthusiasts.

blindwolf’s forthcoming EP, ‘Revival’, is slated to release on March 1.
