Following up 2015’s five-song The Shift: Anthems for a Revolution EP, Orlando, Florida-based independent metal quintet, Meka Nism, will issue their new The War Inside EP on May 10th. Available for pre-order now, the upcoming album is going to easily draw in tons of new fans for this budding band. (At the time of this posting, the video for lead single “The War Inside” is fast-approaching 10k views.) Now, still with loads of runway before launch, we’re stoked to unveil the second song, “Trailblazer”.

Commenting on track, the group noted the following: “‘Trailblazer’ is a heavy, fast tune. It revolves around the idea of healing and taking the chance to realize that you can make it to live another day. Don’t let the tough times get you down and taking your life isn’t the answer, life is worth living.”

If that’s not enough, Meka Nism are now also set to open for Jonathan Davis of Korn on May 14th. Event details can be found here.
