Meka Nism is a musician known for her alternative metal band, her passionate solo acoustic performances along with international and multi-dimensional collaborations.
Today, she shares “The Day Fell”, a new single crafted from an honest moment of vulnerability in the chaos of life during the Covid pandemic. Written on piano during quarantine in the summer of 2020 while experiencing the extreme decay of all stability of “normal” life, this song is Meka Nism‘s acknowledgment of both the fear of loss and genuine gratitude for the enduring human spirit.
“It’s the fragile inner reflection of the destruction, with a refusal to crumble. A welcoming of the 5th dimension and a hopeful higher perspective into our morphing reality,” Meka states.
“The Day Fell” is a metalhead’s raw attempt at telling the truth about how we feel during these very unstable times. It may be a more gentle expression than we usually see from Meka Nism, but it’s the reason we know that she reveals truth in her songs. This recording demands attention to fully breathe it in, with gorgeous violin by Michelle Jones, guitar by Raziel, engineering by Erik Emery, mixing by Jeremy Klein, all overseen by producer/ Apex Arts Studios owner Shana Ballard and of course, written and performed on piano and vocals by Meka Nism herself.
Whether aggressively or delicately, there’s no mistake that Meka Nism wants to rock the essence of our souls. Listening to “The Day Fell” will reach into the depths of the heart and shine some much-needed compassion into our darkest shadows.
“Did anyone order a soul crushing, female fronted metal band?” – Idobi Radio
“While there’s a distinct modern metal feel to Meka Nism, the key to what makes their sound more unique and engaging is the pool of influences that they draw from…they have managed to find their own style within it – one that you will have a hard time forgetting once you hear it. A band that could easily find themselves on the rise as word starts to get around.” – Dead Rhetoric
“All in all, this is an impressive effort. The songwriting and playing are years beyond a band that isn’t signed to a record deal, and you would never realize that this is an independent release as the production value rivals any major label offering. If this EP is any indication of what Meka Nism is capable of, I am really looking forward to when they release their first full-length album.” – Grande Rock
“What would happen when you lock Arch Enemy and Lacuna Coil in the same room and force them to record an album? Well, you’d probably get something like Florida residents Meka Nism.” – Merchants of Air
“They experiment with melodies, dipping their toes in and out of a pool of sounds and influences. Then, they combine these creative expressions with the most important element of their music: the message. Meka Nism doesn’t just deliver thrashing tunes; it seeks to deliver listeners from their own wars inside. ” – Shockwave Mag
“A little bit of keyboard, a thumping drum beat followed by roaring riffs leads into the blazing hot title track. A track that mixes modern metal with operatic style scope. That element comes from the incredible range on singer Ms. Meka. She can go from huge soaring melodies to heavier shouts and screams in an instant. Incredible.” – Games, Brains & A Head-Banging Life
