‘Self Sacrifice’ is Gary Dranow’s latest release. It is a spanning narrative that is deeply evocative in many ways. At the beginning, a forlorn vocal line carves the emotional context; a powerful foundation to build on. Leading up to the chorus, he saturates that plane of sentiment and feeling, acoustical and measured before the chaos sets in. A gigantic machination of riffs, distortive bass lines and screaming vocal echoes tear through the calm of the introducing verse. Fusing the angst of nu metal with the heaviness of grunge and hard rock, he achieves a soundscape that is reminiscent of legends like Linkin Park, Karnivool, and even Nirvana. All of them, pioneers, rock voyagers who changed the course of the genre.

The theme of self sacrifice, martyrdom is pretty heavy, rooted in feelings of loyalty, passion, integrity, service, and a powerful sense of purpose. Most people stop at this. But Gary Dranow reaches further, as he always does, and confronts these lauding frontiers with loss of liberty, autonomy, and freedom. He leaves a deliberate aftertaste of tragedy and loss that comes with it. Without holding back, he lets it all play out. The tsunamic riffs, the stormy blasts, the challenging grooves, and moments of reflection. Listen Now! 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
