Die, Exist a Hardcore Metal band from Marikina City PH released their first single entitled ‘Awakening/Deathproof’ on what was said to be the first track from their upcoming ‘Awakening’ EP to be released this year.
The song which is a “two-part” song, tackles a dark hardcore vibe with a sting of punchy rap lines best suited to represent the words of the song. The first part of the song “Awakening” is a metaphor for people who fights with their mind constantly feeling helpless and abandoned by sanity, the song tells the awakening of the beast into which only ones mind procures. The second part of the song “Deathproof” is a mantra, a song that is “anti” the first part of the track awakening. On the contrary of the first song giving the beast awakens in one’s head, Deathproof tells that the beast who is terrorizing the mind has no real power, deathproof literally means “not able to die”, “immune to death” which gives a balanced contrast to both tracks’ meaning and intention.
