Swedish crust punk rockers ADRESTIA are proud to present their new video for the track “Rise Up” (feat. Nastya Palamar), taken from “The Wrath Of Euphrates” out via Wormholedeath / The Orchard / Wormholedeath USA.
“Rise Up is a song about breaking up traditional gender roles and fighting stereotypical and oppressive views on femininity and masculinity. Society’s expectations on us as individuals is a heavy weight to carry for those who doesn’t fit into the stereotypical roles. Since we are products of a patriarchal system, we are part of the problem too. The truth is, we don’t know who we would have been, or what we would have become if we would have had access to the whole spectrum of what is traditionally seen as male or female interests, clothes, playthings, feelings and ways of self expression. The least we can do is to try our best to make sure that kids of future generations are able to shape their identity without these boundaries”.
Adrestia’s music is a mix of crust punk and old school swedish death metal. The lyrics are mostly reflections of the time we’re living in, the conflicts, the dictators, the religious freaks, the fundamentalists and the freedom for which we all yearn. The members are/have been involved with other bands such as Shades Of Grey, Future Ruins and Ognemot. Adrestia made their first recording in early 2016 in Hoborec studios in Jönköping. The LP “The Art Of Modern Warfare” was released 2017, followed by a two week European tour. The album The Wrath Of Euphrates is scheduled for release on July 26 2019.
