Long-time MetalSucks favorites Yashira are back with a new single, “Impasse,” from their forthcoming album, Fail to Be. And it’s an absolute ripper! The new song is the second single from the new record following the release of “Shards of Heaven” last month.
“Impasse” serves as a stark reminder of all the reasons I fell in love with this band in the first place: their combination of unrelenting, dirty, nasty sludge riffs with a slight proggy touch is irresistible to these ears. Think of the magic that made Coalesce so special, but even heavier and grosser.
Bassist/vocalist Luke Barber offers of the latest single:
“‘Impasse’ is a track that uses religious devotion as a metaphor for drug addiction. In many ways, drug dependence and the belief in a higher power are parallel. The damage they inflict on the psyche can be permanent. This song is about autonomy being stripped away in the search for relief.”
Fail to Be comes out on December 11 via Good Fight; pre-order here.
