On November 10th, Addison, Texas-based metal quartet Fading Nemesis released a reimagined interpretation of Oliver Anthony’s “Rich Men North of Richmond,” centered around finding a unified perspective amidst rampant and dissident rhetoric. A collaboration between the band and producer Larry Elyea, the single has been praised for its cohesiveness and its comfortable fit within the band’s stylistic scope. The band aims to expand upon this thematic direction on their debut album, which will come out in spring of next year.
Yesterday, frontwoman Farah Naz came on for an interview. Alongside our discussion of the band’s new material, we also discussed her upbringing in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, the societal contrasts that stood out to her in the West, and the bonds she’s solidified with her immediate family, as well as her chosen family.
