JOSEPH IZAYEA  Releases New Song Featuring Doc Coyle (BAD WOLVES)

JOSEPH IZAYEA has been producing songs and performing as a vocalist since 2007. He is currently the vocalist for FROM UNDER CONCRETE KINGS, SEEKING SIRENS, and SOUR TIMES. Immersing into the powerful theatrics of the orchestral driven “Shadow Cast”, Harder Truths doesn’t hold anything back. IZAYEA has thrown everything at this album and the impact is incredible.

From the utterly guttural heavy of “Blackverse Broken” to the melodic style of “Hourglass” and dissonance in “Papercut”, Harder Truths sees each track given its own identity. The record is a powerful offering of creativity revealing IZAYEA’s distinctive and diverse sound, which is complemented by each guest. 

Fusing dynamic rhythms, invigorating instrumental textures with the intensity of the lyrics produces a profound impact. 

Harder Truths is a journey of dark emotions and encounters. By bringing them out into the open, into the light, the album provides a compelling listening experience. 

Guests on Harder Truths include the legendary Doc Coyle from BAD WOLVES & GOD FORBID, Kris Norris, formerly of DARKEST HOUR, Buz McGrath of UNEARTH, Chris Daniele, formerly of The ACACIA STRAIN, Tim MacMillar of PROTEST THE HERO, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD’s Justin Longshore, as well as Josh Gilbert of AS I LAY DYING / WOVENWAR.

This track was composed by Doc Coyle from Bad Wolves whom is also featured on guitars. “So Resolved” is the second advanced single release off of Joseph Izayea’s new collaboration record “Harder Truths

Lyrics

What more will I endure? I’ve suffered everything.

One thing’s a certainty, your threats are empty.

Now, there’s only fury in my heart. I’ve got nothin’ to lose, and now I’m ruthless.

I reject your judgment; it’s borne of jealousy.

All said and done was all for insecurity.

Ever questioning my ends and means: I’ll endure fear and doubt no more.

I damn you for judging me when I’ve never done you wrong.

No, I won’t let this go.

Know this is the life I lead: It’s imperfect, but still my own and mine alone.

Without the burden of you, I’ve found that I am more.

I reject your judgment; it’s borne of jealousy.

All said and done was all for insecurity.

Here and now I see, it was all deceit.

You can’t stop what you cannot kill.

Now I damn you for judging me when I’ve never done you wrong.

No, I won’t let this go. Know this is the life I lead: It’s imperfect, but still my own.

It is mine alone. No longer will treachery ever stop me, not ‘til I’m done.

I’ve just begun. Here and now I see. There’s no more you can do to stop me.

Lies, and the stories you preach; borne of jealousy, I reject them all.

Now I damn you for judging me. I have never done you wrong.

No, I won’t let this go.

Know this is the life I lead: It’s imperfect; but still my own, and It is mine alone.

God damn you for judging me.

I have never done you wrong. Know I’ll never let it go.

No longer will treachery ever stop me, not ‘til I’m done… And I’ve just begun.

I reject your lies.

I curse your treachery and I damn your judgment.
