L.A.’s Next Door To Heaven is a potent metalcore combo that brings vulnerability, strength, and focuses to another level of melodic and heavy music. To date, they have released two full-length albums and an EP and their latest offering is a music video for the new song “Disguise”.
According to vocalist Daria Mazunova, this track has more extreme vocals compared to their previous material, and she kept that in mind when writing the lyrics. Very honest and straightforward, Mazunova jokes that it’s a bit simpler than their regular stuff, but not for drummers, she continues to explain the track:
“Our new track “Disguise”, yet unreleased, inspired us to make a music video for it. It’s rare when all your thoughts at the moment can be put together into music and lyrics this well. It is about the process of finding out who’s a friend, and who’s a foe. It’s a way to look at the people you thought you knew and understand what has changed. For sure, this song and video are going to be released in due time therefore should be well received by fans.”
The band is in the process of recording and mixing an EP and “Disguise” will become a part of it. In most cases for them, music comes first, followed by the lyrics. In the case of this song, the mood came first and the rest followed.
A truly international band, partners Mazunova and Evgenii “Gene” Mazunov (guitar/vocals) come from Russia and have been playing music for years. Once they relocated to California, where they are based now, they met up with Mexican bassist Jorge Romo and local drummer Michael Moore.
Together the four of them have been amazing audiences in Los Angeles and other parts of the country showing off their eclectic mix of metalcore.
