And we can do nothing but agree with them, Crossfaith have been changing and evolving their sound with every album since their start in 2006 and Ex_Machina set the trend for the sound they’re chasing now. Though its only five songs, Species gives off the vibes of a new futuristic world and each song has it’s own strength and power. As said by the band, Digital Parasite starts off raw and hard metal combined with catchy EDM and gives of the perfect vibe for a massive moshpit. Endorphin, we know from the shows, is a track that gives you the chance for everything. Screaming along, headbanging and moshing as hard as you can with it’s awesome riff and the melodic chorus.
Slamming right into Truth Of Insanity with fast riffs and another melodic chorus and two stepping into the moshpit, their sound is a bit deeper than the previous two songs and it gets harder as the the song progresses. None of Your Business is a collab between Crossfaith and Osaka rapper Jin Dogg, it’s the perfect hip hop metal collaboration, raw riffs and metalcore drums. it’s a fuck you to the world, telling them it’s not your business! I like how Jin Doggs voice is raw and matches perfectly with the feeling of the song, if not creating the angry feeling of the song. Your Song is described as an emotional song but it starts up with a catchy beat and it’s really the lyrics that makes this song sad as the instrumental part are quite rough and angry, expressing the anger one can feel after losing a loved one to death or heartbreak. It fits perfect on the album with the much more aggressive tunes it holds and I hope that the fans feel the same about these tracks and just like us will play them constantly and we’re excited for the pandemic to be over and allow all of us to go crazy during their shows again.
