Crush the Core is right, we "Live to Die"

"Too many to say, It is what we see around us everyday."

Crush the Core's single, "Live to Die", delves into the all-too-familiar story of job loss and the subsequent struggle to regain footing in a turbulent world. With its roots in Canada and a lineup comprising Phil Forget, Stef Forget, and Eric Mireault, Crush the Core offers a powerful narrative that resonates with the everyday challenges people face.

When asked about the personal experiences that inspired "Live to Die," the band succinctly encapsulated the essence of their message, stating, "Too many to say, It is what we see around us everyday." This acknowledgment of shared hardship forms the backbone of the track, offering listeners a mirror to their own struggles and an anthem for those enduring similar trials.

The recording process at Stef's Studio, synonymous with Crush the Core's own Crush the Core studio, provided a familiar environment that allowed the band to focus on their craft without external influences swaying their signature sound. This setting facilitated the creation of a track that, while exploring new thematic ground, remains true to the band's established identity of heavy, melodic metal.

The band articulates this progression, noting, "It reflects that we can write songs that are different from each other and our crushing heavy sound now has an identity among some who know us." This versatility showcases the band's ability to navigate diverse themes while maintaining their distinctive sonic footprint.

The core message of "Live to Die" is one of unwavering determination in the face of life's adversities. Crush the Core's blunt advice, "Do your fuckin best!" serves as a rallying cry for listeners, urging them to persevere regardless of the obstacles they may encounter. This sentiment is a testament to the band's no-nonsense approach to life's challenges, offering a raw, unfiltered perspective on survival and resilience.

As Crush the Core continues to evolve and expand their musical horizons, "Live to Die" serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience inherent in all of us, offering a beacon of hope amidst the tumult of the modern world.
