Villains Keep Rock Alive with “Death of Me”


While some declare the era of rock has passed, Villains counter with “Death of Me,” a single that defiantly maintains the genre’s significance. The Los Angeles-based duo, comprised of Elin Wolf and Mike Aguado, is reminiscent of Mothica, Meg Myers, and Evanescence.

“Death of Me” is dynamic and intense, embodying the essence of one’s personal demons caught between darker impulses and desire for redemption. Drawing from Wolf’s previous lawsuit against her abuser, the track holds a haunting narrative weaved with heavy guitar riffs and tortured vocals.

“The lyrics ‘hungry for the taste of the poison‘ and ‘could I ever let you go‘ speak of the pain of an abusive relationship”, Elin states, “but later in the song ‘cast aside these chains and I rise’ offers hope and freedom from addiction.”

The song’s aggressive energy and the emotional depth of the lyrics resonate with listeners, making “Death of Me” a compelling and memorable song that stands out in the Villains’ discography. This track is a testament to the band’s ability to blend metalcore intensity with meaningful storytelling, appealing to fans of hard-hitting music with a message. Delivered with raw intensity, the lyrics delve into themes of manipulation, despair, addiction, and the struggle for liberation, inviting listeners to reflect on their own experiences.
