Fathom Farewell is melodic metalcore hailing from New England, USA. They have a fourth EP coming out this year, the much anticipated “Kraken” and they are introducing it with the crushing single “Eulogy”. The band shares some insight into what is, instrumentally, the heaviest song they have ever written:

“Lyrically this song is entirely about what can happen when someone with mental health issues goes far too long without getting help.  The first verse describes desperate cries for help dampened by a great deal of self doubt and anxiety.  The second verse delves into the aggression and sadness that can develop and the third and final verse (breakdown) ultimately delves into the deterioration of the person due to a lack of assistance.”

The EP “Kraken”is a series of waves from start to finish varying in intensity, grit and feel from song to song, with the intention of leaving the listener feeling as though the mythological ocean beast has taken them on a wild and terrifying ride through their emotions toward a place of inner reflection and peace.  

To the band, the name Fathom Farewell means either a watery grave or contemplating goodbye. The content of the songs is in many ways metaphorical so this name is an ironic description of the mind drifting to the place where it allows them to believe that giving up is acceptable when in their hearts they know it isn’t.

Over the years, Fathom Farewell has definitely made a name for themselves having shared the stage with bands such as Sevendust, Devil Wears Prada, AFI and Hatebreed and played at festivals including Van’s Warped Tour and New England Metal and Hardcore Fest.

This precise blend of melody and heavy is suitable for all metalcore fans, especially those with an interest in Northlane, Killswitch Engage, and August Burns Red.

The lyric video for “Eulogy” can watched and heard via its premiere on NewFuryMedia HERE.

“Kraken” will be out on October 22, 2021.
