Fahran, a five-piece alternative metal band from Nottingham, has been making waves in the music scene since their formation in 2012. The band currently features Matt Black on vocals, Chris Byrne and Jake Graham on guitars, Joshua Ballantyne on bass, and Josh Fahran on drums. With two self-produced albums under their belt—Chasing Hours (2014) and Vapours (2019)—they are set to captivate fans once again with their upcoming album The Hope That Kills Me, slated for release later this year.

Their latest single, “Hate Me,” has just dropped on platforms like YouTube and Spotify, accompanied by an energetic music video filmed at a nearby industrial estate in Nottingham.

“Hate Me” kicks off with a barrage of heavy guitar riffs and powerful drumming, immediately setting an intense tone. As the song progresses, the instrumentation eases back, allowing Matt Black’s distinctive vocals to shine through, supported by Chris Byrne’s melodic guitar playing. The full band rejoins for the chorus, returning to the heavy stylings introduced in the track’s opening.

Following a brief instrumental bridge, the song transitions into the second verse and another chorus, leading into a breakdown that features even heavier riffs and some intense screaming from Black. The track then showcases Byrne’s impressive skills with a fast-paced guitar solo, concluding abruptly to leave listeners craving more.

The track is a testament to Fahran’s songwriting prowess, expertly balancing contrasting melodic and heavy sections, enhanced by dynamic changes in percussion. Metal enthusiasts will find “Hate Me” a must-add to their playlists. Black’s unique vocal delivery, combined with the band’s robust musicianship, promises that The Hope That Kills Me will be an album to watch for in October.

Score: 8/10
