FOR YOUR EARS
"Eye for an eye is not the answer if you wanna cure this cancer."
The song is full of impactful and introspective lyrics, that if you truly listen, WILL make you feel the overwhelming rage that is currently plaguing so many of us in an uncertain political climate.
As they scream "this isn't who we are" I find myself connected even further. I'm diving deep into the ACAEDIA hype because it's completely and utterly worth drowning in!
The musicianship is so intense that you can feel the pain in every riff and hear it with every scream, it's piercing!
The haunting combination of vocals from Eddy Madero and Ray Jimenez makes you beg for more. I guarantee you that you will find yourself consumed by a guitar solo that makes guitarist Javier Sardinas look like a damn rock god (ok, maybe that was too far but HOLY SHIT it's FUCKING AMAZING). The rhythmic addiction created in the song is being pounded out on drums by Mike Collantes and it brings me back...back to High School when the songs were like crack and I could scream them at the top of my lungs as tears fell from my face, feeling alone, feeling unwanted, feeling lost. Those songs united a generation, and "DIVIDED" has the ability to bring you back to that feeling, punch it in the face and give you more!
"This isn't who we are. We divide ourselves into worthless pieces, blinded by our own hate."
