This is an intense ride that Japanese band Choke takes you on with this brand new single single ‘The Human Anthem’. The band is originally known for their metalcore/trap metal roots but on this track the band is all over the place with tons of unpredictability and certainly bringing new elements to the tired and tested sound of progressive metlacore.
According to the band, “The Human Anthem is said to be the fastest song ever from CHOKE, going over 250BPM. The thrilling rhythm is built since the very first seconds of the song, featuring rapid skank beats, dense bass lines, and fierce speedy guitar licks. The incorporation of symphonic choirs also gives a greater impetus to the song. This track provokes an instant rush of adrenaline! There were high expectations ahead since the upload of the short trailers in August. Fans will surely be pleased with this innovative piece! The Human Anthem will be a blast at live concerts as well! This is not a hymn to praise humanity; in fact, it points out the misery of not living freely. Trapped in a suffocating status quo, people seem to be forced to kill their spirits and are dragged to live in a certain way. Rather than resign yourself, CHOKE incites you to make a paradigm shift and break the mold.”
