“This song represents the struggles we face and the choice we have to fight against the darkest days and moments of life,” says guitarist David Landers. “Mentally, physically and spiritually, you have a voice and a choice. Choose life over death and turn the soundtrack up.”
“Death to Life” is also a musical milestone for ARTUSHA. “We still groove and thrash where it makes sense, but this song was an obvious sign of musical maturity and an expansion of our sonic range,” says bassist Brian Hase.
Adds drummer Caylon Landers, “‘Death to Life’ not only lyrically covers a large range of emotions and moments we've all experienced at times, but musically it takes you on that journey as well. Along with these experiences in life comes growth and strength. This tune showcases how we as a band have been gaining those, as well, as part of our journey.”
ARTUSHA’s heavy, groove-based style of metal reflects the group’s varied influences and focus on writing songs by full-band consensus. The finely tuned quartet does not strictly adhere to the boundaries of any genre, using raw power and genuinely curious hearts to create bold and uncompromising music that is filled with purpose.
The group is made up of multi-instrumentalists who have also written and recorded solo projects and work in-house on ARTUSHA’s recording and video production. All music is recorded, mixed and mastered by David Landers and the video was created and edited by Caylon Landers at David’s Zero Label Studios in Richmond, VA.
Last year ARTUSHA released videos for the tracks “Inquisition,” a socio-political reflection on the state of America, “Zero Label,” a track that fervently expresses the trio’s disdain for personal labels, and “Live Free.” The singles have garnered more than 15,000 streams on Spotify. “Live Free,” “Inquisition” and “Zero Label” are available via all digital service providers.
