Paul Maged – “Fight to the Death”

Following the release of his political protest song “The Resistance” last October, NYC-based artist Paul Maged returns with the EP Fight to the Death, the third and final album in Maged’s EP trilogy, after Light Years Away and The Glass River. The release’s self-titled track is a thunderous rocker, touting a fierce vocal lead and a blistering guitar solo as the three-minute mark approaches. Elements of alternative and punk are certainly prevalent, especially in the venomous, multi-layered vocal production with a sort of menacing call-and-response approach. Thematically, the EP “explores different sides of the human consciousness.” it’s another intriguing, engaging release from Maged.

“Fight to the Death” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
