Minnesota metalcore outfit Odds Of An Afterthought are gearing up for the release of their new EP, Through the Eyes of Change, which is scheduled to arrive on May 14th. These midwestern metalcore newcomers have added hard rock melodies to their sound as you hear a significant change between their 2014 debut Finding the True Vine and their 2018 EP Strongholds. While the group are inspired by their Christian faith, they also touch subjects on life and its hardships as everyone can get lost in their explosive breakdowns.
Today (29th), the band has teamed up with us here at Metal Insider to premiere their new single “Checkmate.”
Frontman/guitarist Tanner Greely commented:
“Checkmate is the first track we wrote for this upcoming EP and we knew right away that this song needed to have a statement lyrically. This song is about a friendship turning sour.”
