Upcoming Release:

Backward Blue Rides the Metal Wave with "Eye of the Storm" EP

Hey there, metalheads! Get ready to strap yourselves in because Atlanta's own Backward Blue is gearing up to drop their latest EP, "Eye of the Storm", on May 24, 2024. And let me tell you, this one's gonna blow your speakers and maybe even your mind!
So, what's the deal with "Eye of the Storm"? Well, let me break it down for you. You're on a rollercoaster ride through the darkest corners of your soul, with riffs so heavy they could sink a battleship and melodies so haunting they'll give you goosebumps. That's the kind of journey you're in for with this EP.
We've got, for example, "We're in This Together", a killer cover of Nine Inch Nails' classic, injected with Backward Blue's signature style and featuring Zach Myers from Shinedown on guitar. It's like taking a familiar ride in a souped-up muscle car – same thrills, but with an extra kick.
There's the title track, "Eye of the Storm". Picture yourself in the middle of a mosh pit, surrounded by chaos and energy, but right at the center, there's this calm, this clarity. That's what this track feels like – a whirlwind of sound and fury, but with a sense of purpose and direction.
Backward Blue isn't just here to melt faces (although they do a damn good job of it); they're here to tell a story. With lyrics that cut deep and vocals that soar, they're painting a picture of struggle, resilience, and ultimately, triumph.
And let's talk about the guest appearances, shall we? Tim Stewart's guitar solo on "Bull Hate" is like a firework exploding in the night sky – dazzling, electrifying, and impossible to ignore. And the music video for "We're in This Together," directed by Doni Bacox, is like a mini-movie, with twists and turns that'll leave you on the edge of your seat.
But what really sets Backward Blue apart is their heart and soul. These guys aren't just musicians; they're storytellers, dreamers, warriors. They've been through hell and back, and they're not afraid to wear their scars with pride.
So, what's my take on "Eye of the Storm"? Well, let's just say it's like coming home after a long journey – familiar yet exhilarating, comforting yet invigorating. It's a reminder that no matter how dark the night may seem, there's always a glimmer of light on the horizon.
In conclusion, "Eye of the Storm", it's a testament to the power of music to heal, to inspire, to unite. So crank up the volume, let the music wash over you, and get ready to ride the metal wave with Backward Blue.
"Eye of the Storm" speaks to me on a deep level. It's not just about the music; it's about the shared experience, the sense of camaraderie, the feeling of being part of something bigger than yourself. So, to Backward Blue, I say this: thank you for reminding us why we fell in love with metal in the first place. Keep rocking, keep rolling, and never stop chasing the storm.
