Orthodox Streams New Track “I’m Scared Of You”

A scathing new track has come online from Nashville’s own Orthodox: check out the hyperkinetic “I’m Scared Of You” below. The track is the first dose to be administered from forthcoming album, “Sounds Of Loss,” to be released via Unbeaten Records (Left Behind, Stigmata, Purgatory) on 5/26/17.

Centered on the songwriting team of Adam Easterling (vocals, drums) and Tyler Williams (guitar, bass) Orthodox is quite an anomaly. Though identifying as a straight edge band, the group is unabashedly metal in sound and influences range from death metal down to more mainstream hard ‘n heavy sounds.

Speaking on those influences, Easterling said: “When Orthodox was formed I was still in high school. Our early material was really influenced by groups like the hardcore band, Foundation. However as time wore on, we realized we were much bigger metal heads than the hardcore/punk associated with straight edge. We just focused on writing the music we wanted to hear.”

New release “Sounds Of Loss” is a concept album, with Easterling explaining: “The entire album is centered on the theme of anticipated grief. It’s preparing for the loss of loved ones, people around you due to various reasons including addiction and illness. I tried to write about the strain that grief and loss have mentally, physically and even on your faith. Musically Tyler and I strove to have the music reflect what the topic is. For example ‘I’m Scared Of You’ was written to express what fear would actually sound like within the musical context of our band.”
