Times of Grace Debut New Track “Medusa”
If you were disappointed that Times of Grace’s recent single, “The Burden of Belief,” didn’t sound more like Killswitch Engage despite the presence of guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz and singer Jesse Leach, you’re an idiot. Still, you’ll likely enjoy the band’s new single, “Medusa,” more.
“Medusa” doesn’t sound exactly like KSE, but it’s definitely wouldn’t be out of place on one of that band’s albums. If it were on a KSE album, we’d praise it for being just a little bit outside the band’s wheelhouse. As it stands, it’s a killer Times of Grace song.
Says Dutkiewicz of the track:
“‘Medusa’ is one of the heavier tracks on the record. It definitely keeps within the theme of the record since it’s about a broken/abusive relationship. We hope you guys dig it.”
“‘Medusa’ is about betrayal, abuse, and deceit. It’s a story about the dark side of the soul and the struggle to tear away from those who feed off of your heart. When faced with these types of people and situations, there is a battle to not allow it to destroy a part of your soul and change you. This song is a testimony of that internal warfare of killing of the beast and taming the demons that remain in the aftermath. It’s about finding a way to keep your heart and your spirit alive after being broken and beaten down.”

The song will appear on Times of Grace’s sophomore effort (and first release in a decade), Songs of Loss and Separation, which lands July 16 via the band’s own imprint label, Wicked Good Records, distributed by ADA Worldwide. Pre-order it here.
