US-based metallers Once Human return with a killer new tune “Deadlock” featuring Machine Head’s Robb Flynn on guest vocals. Watch the captivating video below.
“Deadlock” is taken from band’s upcoming album “Scar Weaver”, due out February 11, 2022 via earMusic. The song features Robb Flynn, the frontman of legendary metal band Machine Head, former bandmate of Once Human guitarist Logan Mader. With an outstanding vocal performance of Metal Queen Lauren Hart the song is a monster kick-off to their heaviest album yet and underlines the bands approach as the next up and coming strike inside of the modern and brutal Metal World.
Once Human vocalist Lauren Hart on the collaboration: “It was absolutely amazing, are you kidding?” She continues: “I didn’t believe it was happening until he sent something back and I heard his voice on our song. I was, like, ‘Holy crap! This is real!’ He came back with a new chorus and it was so much better than mine, so my chorus was gone! [Laughs] But then performing with him in the video, that was insane. The energy he brings on stage he brings in person too. It was a great experience and his energy is so powerful. The video came out amazing!”
Pieced together over the last two years, “Scar Weaver” represents a massive step forward for the band. Blessed (or perhaps cursed) with plenty of extra time during the last year’s lockdown situation, the band has been able to refine and redefine its sound, inspired by a sudden creative surge from latest recruit, second guitarist Max Karon. The result is an gloriously idiosyncratic modern metal record, with Hart’s career-best vocal performance just one of its dazzling revelations. With Once Human’s most intense and explosive music to work with, the singer has pushed herself to new heights, showcasing a vastly expanded vocal range in the process.
