Lyon metalcore band Resolve have just released a powerful new track and video. The track is “Rapture”. It’s our Track Of The Day today.
From the name alone, you could already assume that the track relates to religion. Indeed it does, with nothing held back lyrically in this critical focus. There’s a lot of fire here, both musically and lyrically, rejecting the seemingly blind obedience and ineffectiveness recognised in organised religion. Instead asking for transparency and honesty.
“I’m sick of being fooled by a book
I’m done being blinded by a veil
Don’t turn us into your martyrs
We won’t save this world with prayers”
We touched base with Robin, Resolve’s bassist, to ask about the inspiration for “Rapture”. Here’s what he had to say about the new track:
“”Rapture” was challenging to write but what resulted is maybe the most mature song we’ve created so far. Lyrically, it’s a departure from the previous themes we explored, aiming to discuss the delicate topic of religions and how it often leads to division rather than gathering. With this release, we wish to unveil another aspect of Resolve: as a band, we thrive to constantly broaden our horizons while establishing our own identity in the meantime.”
