Denver metalcore quintet, Enemy In I have released their highly anticipated new track, “Decimate.” A big middle finger to the ugly side of the music industry, the aggressive “Decimate” takes aim at those who aren’t genuine in their craft or are doing more harm to the local music scene than good.
Vocalist Bobby Seitz had this to say about the song, which can be heard below:
“Decimate’s message is essentially an observation of the music industry, and in some cases, our current music scene. It’s meant to depict being in an up and coming band and learning that what you thought the experience may be like and what it ends up slowly turning into, may have drastic differences. After being scammed out of money, resources, used for contacts and told how to act, dress and write (whether it be physical or indirectly) I felt it was necessary to speak up for bands that work hard to get where they are and continue to stick to their guns. Decimate is aimed to have the listener discuss with themselves and their peers the fact that not every local act is as genuine as they appear. With lines like “all we see, all we hear is competition” and “I’ve come to find, looking you right in the eye, they’ll politely say ‘don’t even try” it will hopefully spark some thought. I and everyone else in E.I.I. strive to keep around bands who are true to their craft and wont be pushed aside by any morality stripped and selfish acts that may be standing in their way. Push to achieve what you desire and take names as you go, and don’t go anywhere until you’ve made your name.”
