Today progressive death metallers Dischordia tell us about the title track to their new EP "Creator, Destroyer". Here is the story:
Our new EP's title track, "Creator, Destroyer," was the first song we wrote after our vocalist, Josh Turner, joined the band. He presented a rhythmic idea based on his experience in marching percussion. The main riff is a 7/8 sextuplet figure layered over two different 4/4 drum ideas.
Our drummer, Josh Fallin, took the initial idea and ran with it. He and Keeno then met up soon after and finished the song in a night. Keeno then wrote the lyrics within a week. Musically, this is easily our heaviest and most straightforward, death metal type song.
Lyrically, the song is based on Keeno's personal, spiritual journey; namely his questioning of faith. The song itself is one our favorites in that it came together so easily and is a departure from our other material.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
