Metallers Love And Death are coming in hot in 2021. For those catching up, the band includes Brian ‘Head’ Welch from the almighty KoRn and Jasen Rauch of Breaking Benjamin (read about their return here).
After releasing ‘Down’, their first single quite a few years, the band are back in action, and have just released their second single ‘White Flag’ off their upcoming record Perfectly Preserved, set for 12th February. The track features Ryan Hayes of metalcore band Righteous Vendetta.
‘White Flag’ is a wonderful fusion of KoRn and is slowly introduced with a tranquil instrumental for close to a minute; then the guitars kick in. Welch dives straight in with his nu-metal roar, but quickly dials it back to a clean verse-closing. Immediately, Rauch jumps in on the chorus with a refreshing Breaking Benjamin influenced harmony. These two musicians are working in absolute harmony together, and it’s bringing us a really enjoyable nostalgic sound – the album is really shaping up. The final verse completely breaks into chaos as guest Hayes jumps in with a blistering verse as the guitars heat up.
Love And Death are gearing up for the big release in a few weeks’ time. They’ve got a global livestream scheduled for the day after the release, which you can tune in, on Saturday 13th February @ 11am AEST.
