Temic’s “Falling Away” Reflects Positively On Our Finite Time

The band Temic formed during the pandemic period. Eric Gillette and Diego Tejeida had already toured the world together as members of Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress, but it wasn’t until 2020 that they decided to start a group with Arkentype drummer Simen Sandnes and Fredrik Klemp, who’s the lead vocalist for Maraton.

Their debut album Terror Management Theory comes out November 17, 2023 and their “power prog” single “Falling Away” is out now, alongside a video.

The new single’s video was shot in the Norwegian village of Bortelid earlier this summer and marks the first time all four members of Temic got together in person as a band.

The band says:

It’s one of our favorite songs on the album. The song embodies all the core elements we envisioned for TEMIC: powerful lyrics and catchy vocal melodies at the forefront, a constant pulse underneath, dynamic and rich instrumentation all around, and electronic-influenced sounds adorning the edges.

They add:

The lyrics discuss the natural impermanence of all things from the perspective of someone who contemplates their own mortality and shares this moment of clarity with their descendants. Far from being dark, “Falling Away” invites you to reflect positively on the fact that our time is finite.
