Hello everybody and welcome back to our blog series “We Are Astrarot“! I know we skipped some days and didn’t post, but it surely was a reasult of countless hours of work & hustle. Not laziness! First of all, I wanna thank you for coming back, reading and keep supporting us! Once more, for everyone that might want to let us know what he/she thinks for our blog, or has some suggestions about it,Contact us!
So, today’s blog is about the 2nd song from our album “We Can’t Win”, called “Buried Fate“. It was the first song we wrote for the album, when we sarted writting it, and it surely cought our attention. ALthough the first part of the song, the opening riff came out soon, it was a tough song to write, and it took us two or three days to write it, but the result came out to be amazing!
“Buried Fate” is one of the most “Metal” songs of the record, it has some Slipknot vibe in it and the riffs are playinmg a big role, something that in most of our songs doesn’t really happen. Despite all the aggressiveness and the metal vibe, “Buried Fate” has one of the most emotional parts we’ve ever written, and for sure the best vocal performance by Lee, at the middle of the song.
Lyrically, the song is about all the people that have been giving us advice in our lives. All the people who never understood what we are about, what we want to accomplish, and what kind of lives we want to lead. It’s a common fact that the most people don’t wanna hear, imagine or ever think about someone having success with music, or any form of art. That’s what has been happening most of our lives, with most people around us saying that we will never make it, we should stick to having the band as a hobby, and live a normal life. That’s why “We sold our souls to the brave” as the song states. We sold our souls to those who didn’t care about the crappy advice they were getting from anyone else, the people who believed, pursued and chased their dreams!
What we ended up doing about this, was just facing the darkness of all this negativity we were getting, using all this pushing from the people around us, to take us to the next level. “We are the Castaways“. We are the outcasts, they will never understand our mindset, our goals and what we want to accomplish in our lives. The most emotional part of the song, is a series of the phrase “Throw me to the flame“, as they need to accept that we will never go with the flow, we will never follow them, so they need to understand that they are gonna need to just keep critising us, talk crap about us, because we will never compromise.
