Meka Nism, frontperson of eponymous Orlando metal ragers Meka Nism has thrown fans a curveball with her new solo single — a dramatic departure from the heavier sounds she's known best for.

"The Day Fell" is a moving and emotive number written by Meka on piano during the lockdown summer of 2020, and has way more in common with Tori Amos than her musical day job. Violin parts courtesy of Violectric's Michelle Jones seal the deal. According to a recent Facebook post, the ballad is even generating an early bit of Grammy buzz.

"It's the fragile inner reflection of the destruction, with a refusal to crumble. A welcoming of the 5th dimension and a hopeful higher perspective into our morphing reality," Meka said of the song in a press statement.

Take a listen to "The Day Fell" below. The song is also available to stream/download on Spotify and Bandcamp.
