October Ends dropped 'Devil's Den' back when I was in the Spanish countryside with next to no internet and no website to share it on. Fast forward to now where I'm on the Italian Rivera with full net access and review site that is back up and rocking, so I can finally share this brilliant track.
'Devil's Den' doesn't waste any time in the form of a long winded and slow building intro, and I feel it was the best choice for the track. But don't expect a heavy as hell song. October Ends have gone in a different direction this time around, and while I love their EP A New Path, the new sound is great, think soft Metalcore. The vocals are a good mixture of growls and clean and the actual lyrics are... actually I'll let the band cover that one:
"This is a song about being in a situation that you're trying to escape from. Throughout the track, there are scenarios that try to change the perspective of yourself. A lot of people feel like there's only one way to resolve a situation they're in, usually going for the easy way out. In this case, we're trying to explore different paths to become the person who we really want to be. Being trapped in the den is like being in a constant loop trying to face your inner demons and try to show to people that there is always a way to dissolve their troubles. We hope that people can connect to the lyrics within this song and find their true self."
