The Cambridge English Dictionary defines mechanism as "a mechanical contrivance; structure of a machine." Well, that dictionary will soon need a new entry, which reads "Meka Nism: totally uncontrived, a new structure of metal music."
Originally formed in 2006 under the steampunk-sounding name of Meka Nism and the Rusty Years, the band, now known as the more streamlined Meka Nism, has mutated into the awesome future-forming metallic behemoth it is now. Featuring a band firing on all cylinders and the most charismatic frontwoman, Meka Nism has supported legends like Mastodon, Gojira, The Offspring, Limp Bizkit, Otep and In Flames. The very diversity of the support slots speaks volumes for Meka Nism, the group is a true 21st century band, building new edifices on what has come before.
Inspired by Metallica, Joan Jett, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Ghost, Meka Nism’s sound is powerful, metallic, aggressive, melodic, and in your face. Set to unleash the new EP "The War Inside" later this year to follow their three previous releases "Live From The Machine Shop" (Live CD) (2016), "The Shift" (EP) (2015), "The Dance At The End of The World" (EP) (2013), the Orlando based band has teamed up with New Noise Magazine for the video premiere of the EP's title track over at this location, or simply in the player provided above.
Guitarist Bobby Keller comments: “We are all very excited to finally unleash our new single, “The War Inside”, to the masses! We wanted to make a song that a lot of people could relate to, especially now a days with everything going on in the world. We all have internal battles, we all have external battles, whichever one it is, there is always a positive option or choice, even though it may not be as visible. The video portrays an internal struggle from lead singer Ms. Meka, as she confronts her inner demons and finds a way out!”
The track list and artwork for "The War Inside" is:
