Fortamaya is a Thai metalcore band formed in Chonburi, Thailand, in 2018. After several singles during this time, the band has been picked up by Blackat Records and has just released their debut EP ‘Systemfailure 2084’. The band wanted to add, “Lance Prene helped us master the record and we really want to thank him.”
The band was also kind enough to give us a full breakdown of each song, starting with the overall vibe of the EP.
‘Systemfailure 2084’ is an album about society. The classic 1984 is an inspiration. Our everyday life here in Thailand resembles the content of the book. Social issues, political problems, all without a solution. The story in this album talks about our perspective of the system and our reaction to it.
The activity of hate. Every day the government uses 2 minutes to make people in the country hate someone they consider enemies. Reference 1984.
The educational system in our country has the subject of citizenship. One of the other content is to honor someone and discredit someone. They have altered history to brainwash people’s minds. The name of the song is a course code.
This song is talking about the future of the capital city of Thailand. There is no hope for people, system failure, despair, and heading to the end.
Inequality in humanity and society in the view of the ruling class. People under the rule are a thralldom. This song addresses the dark aspects of the aristocracy.
Nature of disease when they get treated and endangered species they struck back with violence. Like the hatred of people in our country taking a stand against oppression. The last song in this album is a rallying call for the people.
