Fight The Fury Debuts Strong With Still Breathing | Posted November 11, 2018
 
What You Need To Know:

With 2016’s release Unleashed being more electronic and pop-driven, many Skillet fans were left craving the heavy, driving sound that dominated Skillet’s early arsenal. John Cooper and Seth Morrison, bassist/vocalist and lead guitarists of Skillet, respectively, responded with a project that was designed to satisfy the Skillet fans who longed for their heavier side. Joined by drummer Jared Ward and guitarist John Panzer, Fight The Fury seeks to display a heavier side of the Skillet members, while also creating its own identity.

What It Sounds Like:
It is quite clear that Nu-Metal, particularly the likes of Slipknot, was the primary influence on this record. The songs are structured in a way that is instantly familiar to Skillet fans, but with a more aggressive riffing style that provides a high contrast to the groovy, chug-filled riffs of Comatose and Collide. At times; however, the riffing comes a little too close to the Slipknot influence, as many parallels can be drawn between “Lose Hold of It All” and “Psychosocial”, “My Demons” and “Duality”, and so on. The guitarists are worthy of a special mention, as both Seth Morrison and John Panzer showcase their shredding capabilities, taking advantage of the extended bridges to create impressive guitar compositions. John Cooper flexes his vocal muscles on this EP, demonstrating his versatility as a vocalist, with a myriad of belts and screams to emphasize the more tenacious shift in style.

Spiritual Highlights:
Being a heavier record, the EP omits many of Skillet’s lyrical tropes in favor of a darker lyrical style (apart from “Still Burning”, which talks about salvation and burning for Christ). The record will provide comfort and solace for those infected with rage and pain, and who are seeking a more aggressive sound to release their emotions.

Best Song On The Record:
The first single and opening track, “My Demons”, is without a doubt the best song on the record. While it maintains the Skillet formula in its structure and design, it also borders on metalcore, with a healthy balance of John Cooper’s raspy barking and his brutal screaming. The main riff, while drawing comparisons to Slipknot’s “Duality”, demonstrates a technical side of Morrison not seen in Skillet. The vocal melodies are also the best on the EP. The song has an extremely catchy chorus which will get stuck in your head for hours and will be sure to have a huge impact live.

For Fans Of:
Skillet, Slipknot, Red, Fit For A King, August Burns Red

Final Word:
While Still Breathing is not as heavy as Impending Doom, Fight The Fury’s debut release is able to showcase a heavier variation of Skillet that is sure to draw a large portion of the band’s massive fanbase. This record will satisfy fans of Skillet and will also favor those who find the band to be lacking aggression. Fight The Fury is still very much a child of Skillet but is able to create memorable riffs and aggression that will hopefully be found on a future Skillet record.
