Symbolism: Faded Wasted

Symbolism embrace the gravity of post punk and deathrock with a remarkable sense of authenticity, offering a fresh and vibrant take on these genres. This underground supergroup, consisting of Rikk Agnew (Adolescents, Christian Death, D.I.) as the lead guitarist; James McGearty (Christian Death, Dark Age) on bass; London May (Samhain, Son of Sam, Tiger Army) on drums duties; and Devix Szell (The Banishment) as the lead vocalist, is a formidable force in the darker aspects of these scenes.

Faded Wasted is steeped in the dark aesthetics of deathrock, infused with the raw energy of industrial-influenced alternative heavy rock, and anchored in the traditional elements of heavy metal. Szell's vocal performance borders on manic, while the piece's instrumental craftsmanship exudes a gritty intensity, resulting in a memorable cut which is frantic and edgy at the same time.

This song is part of Symbolism's eponymous album, produced by Vice Cooler (Ladytron, Peaches) and engineered and mastered by Bill Metoyer (Slayer, D.R.I). Symbolism's extensive experience and expertise shine through in their artistry in a rather organic manner, making the impressive list of contributors and collaborators all the more significant.
