Tallah, the nu-core group featuring Mike Portnoy's son Max on drums, are set to discharge their debut album, Matriphagy, later this year. Up first off the record is "The Silo," an unnerving track for which the band made a music video for.

Unlike Tallah's feral five-track EP that was self-released in 2018, "The Silo" is overtly brooding. Powered by a bottom-heavy, chunky riff bearing slight melodic overtones, singer Justin Bonitz delivers an emotive, disturbing performance with a nervous, anxious-ridden timbre. The extreme elements of his voice remain pocketed, making "The Silo" nearly five minutes of mounting tension that offers no reprieve.

"'The Silo' is the lightest track on the album and the first time we've experimented with using more dynamics in our music. This song is a good example of showcasing what else we can do with our sound aside from the raw heaviness displayed in all our other tracks," explained Tallah.

I live to please, and that’s the notion
But I’m pressed for time—let’s make it gold
I’m too good to cut outside—to transform
Exhale with pleasure and let it drop

You’ll lie to me, but I won’t know
Until she keeps you under thumb

Hold on while I confess in the corner of names and shame
Was it wrong or right? We just can't tell
I live to please—to serve
Some call it HelI, but that’s the sell, yeah
So it rains and pours, and we all get doused

You’ll lie to me, but I won’t know
Until she keeps you under thumb
In the back of the cabinet, you’ll find it’s home
When she keeps you under thumb

O’ I did what I done, and I can’t undone,
So you got what you got
Don't you want me?

You’ll lie to me, but I won’t know
Until she keeps you under thumb
In the back of the cabinet, you’ll find it’s home
When she keeps you under thumb
