RICK MASSIE - Release New Single “The Storm”

Rick Massie released his latest single, “The Storm” on September 4, 2020.

The Storm was written and recorded over the course of a few nights in July 2020, as a way to come to terms with the emotions and questions regarding injustice, intolerance, hatred, and racism in the world. Lyrically, it calls for humanity to come together to take a stand against hate in all forms. Musically, it is a mix of influences and genres; moving from Enslaved-type prog-metal musings and fury, to Katatonia-styled introspection, to rage and darkness reminiscent of Opeth and Edge of Sanity.

The song is a standalone single, and is not included on his recent debut album “Eclipse” which was released on May 1st, 2020.

Rick’s music focuses on messages of positivity, hope and unity even when we are confronted with darkness. In some ways, it is a soundtrack to life - a mix of darkness, fear, and sadness, offset by many moments of joy, love, triumph, hope and light. While “The Storm” may be his most intense and dark track to date, it is still based in themes of hope and unity.

"Unleash yourself against the hate.
With one battle cry: ‘It's not too late’.”

Rick notes that “Some days our social media feeds are filled with messages and comments of hate and division. I’ll never understand how some people can be so opposed to treating others fairly and with respect. I wrote ‘The Storm’ to ask people to treat others fairly, with respect and equality, to check your own biases and assumptions, and to take steps to make this world a better place for everyone. To spread love, not hate. And for us to all come together for that cause.”
