Today November 30, GRAYSHAPES – Ukrainian metalcore band released a new single and music video ‘Bonebreaker’. This track is featuring guest vocals from Ukrainian hardcore band TRUE TOUGH. Music for the song was written before russian invasion on 24.02, but lyrics already after what is reflected in the subject.
“The war inspired the creation of the heaviest track in the band’s history. As there was a very strong desire to unleash all those emotions that had accumulated during the months of a full-scale invasion. We decided to do it in the best way possible – to write the track as it is,” says Denys, vocalist of Grayshapes
The name of the song was born after the Faine Misto charity festival in Lviv, when one of the band’s friends broke his leg during Grayshapes performance.
“This song is about Ukrainian people and their resistance to Russian aggression. We are very inspired by the courage of the Ukrainians in their struggle against russian invaders. There is no longer any doubt about our victory, which is highlighted in the last lines of the song” – Roman, guitarist of Grayshapes
Bonebreaker is currently the heaviest Grayshapes track, so the idea to invite the vocalist of the Kyiv hardcore band True Tough for a guest vocals came naturally.
“Working with Grayshapes was an interesting experience, because it’s always cool to do something together with friends from the scene. Due to the rather different directions of music ofTrue Tough and Grayshapes, it was unusual for me to hear my vocals on such a track, and I was a little worried about the recording, but everything turned out in a really great way” – Roman, vocalist of True Tough.
Together with the single, a music video was also released, on which Igor Zhebko (igormoshtys) worked.Lizard Audio studio (The Hardkiss, Detach, Space Of Variations) worked on the recording and mixing.
