Andy Cizek + Nik Nocturnal (Termina) Share New Track ‘Fade Away’

“I wrote it from two perspectives to be able to fully plumb the depth of darkness from each. Graham HartmannPublished: April 7, 2021Credit: Patrick LawlerShare on FacebookShare on TwitterTermina and Loudwire are teaming up to premiere the heavy and chaotic new track “Fade Away.” From the collaborative brain tissue of YouTubers Andy Cizek (Monuments) and Nik Nocturnal, “Fade Away” is the newest single from the band’s new album Dysphoria.In the vein of Every Time I Die, Dance Gavin Dance and Periphery, “Fade Away” straddles the line between brutally heavy and gloriously melodic. We can go from from brutally destructive breakdowns to ethereal soundscapes, with everything from driving riffs and soaring solos in between. On the other hand, you’ve got a controlling and sadistic entity who torments and thrives on taking away their counterpart’s self worth through mind games and manipulation.”Nik Nocturnal adds, “Despite its depressing name, Dysphoria is a triumphant moment in both mine and Andy’s lives. It’s the cohesive package we’ve been building Termina toward since forming over the internet back in 2018.”Termina “Fade Away” LyricsI feel the eyes of deathThey gaze upon me every nightThe bed where I once sleptBecomes the cell I’m trapped insideI see what others can’tBeyond illusion, horrors thriveNever a helping handThrough the contusions, I surviveI hear your screams through the wallsEchoes of your misery ring out in the hallsI’ll keep you shackled in painPleading for your freedom, but you’ll never escapeFade awayThere’s no one left beside you to withstand (the fire)I find no solace in the claims you make to circumventAn empty promise that you’d never be this way againSpeak my nameThrough emptiness, I am your only friend (a liar)Fulfill a prophecy created under false pretenseWebs of dishonesty spun only for your benefitAnd if you thought you were safe, you were mistakenThis is a prison of your own creationI cry out into the voidA silent confession, but no one believes meTied to a life I’ve destroyedThese violent transgressions left no one to grieve meI hear your screams through the wallsEchoes of your misery ring out in the hallsI’ll keep you shackled in painPleading for your freedom, but you’ll never escapeFade awayThere’s no one left beside you to withstand (the fire)I find no solace in the claims you make to circumventAn empty promise that you’d never be this way againSpeak my nameThrough emptiness, I am your only friend (a liar)Fulfill a prophecy created under false pretenseWebs of dishonesty spun only for your benefitI feel the eyes of deathTaking holdWith all the secrets that I have keptTaking holdManifestation of my regretsListen to "Fade Away" in the YouTube player below.

Filed Under: Nik Nocturnal, TerminaCategories: Exclusive, News The production is top notch as well, thanks to the board mastery of Nik and Cizek.“‘Fade Away’ is an exaggerated metaphor for the toxic power struggle in an unhealthy relationship,” Cizek explains. On one hand, you have an emotional hostage: trapped yet unable to cry out for help because every move is watched, leading to crippling isolation and loneliness. Modern metal as a subgenre is hardly metal and hardly modern. We wanted to take modern metal as a descriptor of more recent innovations — metalcore, deathcore, post-hardcore and djent — and blend them.
