Relatively new to the Seattle metal scene, Draemora is comprised of seasoned musicians who, despite COVID-19 slowing their debut, are ready to show the nation and the world their EP “Awakening” on June 26, 2020, via Ultra Nast Records.
The EP, lyrically, is about battling with drugs and alcohol, and the long journey out of that hell. Heavy, prodigious and heartfelt, vocalist/guitarist Terry Jenkins notes his personal attachments to the lyrics he writes:
“The lyrics come right out of the pages of my life, the things I went through, and how I got through them. Music is a huge outlet for me to dump the good times, bad times, and everything else in between. The majority of the lyrics are a culmination of direct excerpts from letters, poems, and life experiences from the period between May 2018 and August 2019. It was a very intense time in my life.”
Today, the band is excited to share the guitar playthrough for their latest single ‘Guilt’. The track starts off with vocals and a guitar, but quickly changes gears and enters areas that can be compared to “Alien”-era Strapping Young Lad moments. It’s very powerful and intense.
Guitarist Terry Jenkins adds:
“If you love Mesa/Boogie Rectifiers, Telecasters, and Melodic Death Metal with huge epic riffs you are going to really enjoy this playthrough! I enjoy playing this song very much and it’s my pleasure to share it on Gear Gods! What an honor! If you have additional comments feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them!! Word!”
