Cantervice drop new alt-metal single “Blackout”
CANTERVICE picks up the dystopian-themed story where “Doomsday” left off with the fierce new Alt-Metal single “Blackout.”
Fusing alt-metal, nu-metal, and metalcore into a highly addictive anthem for a rising generation, “Blackout” takes up the storyline from the citizens’ point of view. With its provocative lyrics, heavy guitars, synths, and strong rhythms, alongside a vocal performance that oscillates between passionate and brutal the track is an ardent reminder that we shouldn’t blindly believe everything we see.
“‘Blackout’ is a critical reminder to society that we are the key stakeholders, but only through unity and self-awareness can we deploy that power against those wanting to oppress us,” explains CANTERVICE. “The highest figures of authority have secured their holdings by keeping the social fabric of society torn. We must adapt and become immune to the force-fed dichotomy coming through our screens to lift the veil that has blinded us from the truth. Failure to do so will lead to our demise as we continue to be a resource for financial and political gain.”
“Blackout” is out now from independent multi-genre label FiXT.
CANTERVICE is an American concept-based electronic rock project, its core concepts centered around a future dystopian world, plagued by a government that has assumed control over all technology and information. “We simply want to inspire curiosity in those who are open to questioning their reality.”
Formed in January of 2021, CANTERVICE was destined to be the solo/side project of Robert Matlock with only one release, “Void.” However, “Void” quickly crossed 100,000 streams across all platforms and there was a growing fanbase demanding new music.
By summer 2021 Matlock had completely shifted gears and started doing a lot of development and experimentation for CANTERVICE. Realizing he had no desire to go into such an ambitious project alone, he reached out to long time friend Tim Walker, who joined in on drums. They released a new single “The Machine” in December of 2021 and shortly there after recruited Kris Smith on guitar, and Eric Knighton who would round out the group on bass. CANTERVICE signed to independent multi-genre label FiXT in early 2022.
