Serbian hardcore pack BLANKFILE share new song and video – check out “The Counterweight”

1 min read

BLANKFILE have released a new video, introducing their upcoming EP “Gold Standard“, to be released on March 9th. The track comes as probably their heaviest offering so far and features a cool visualizer that can be watched above!

As soon as the first notes of the release are heard, it’s clear that the sound of Boston hardcore is at the forefront, expertly produced by Pete Rutcho. The band has remained dedicated to this sound since their previous release. The accompanying music video is imbued with a darker visual identity, characterized by monochromatic photography that only adds to the melancholic atmosphere. One of the hallmarks of Blankfile gigs and videos is the energetic interplay between the band and its audience during the performance, complete with frenzied moshing.

The lyrics of the song pack a powerful punch, delivering their message with direct and unapologetic force.

The message is crystal clear: find your own path, stand up for your values, and don’t let anyone or anything bring you down. You are no longer subject to being judged or rated on a scale of one to ten. Instead, you are the counterbalance, the measure of worth.


It’s unclear whether the song is intended as a general philosophy or a specific message to someone, but many will surely find a connection to it, either as the recipient of the punchy lyrics or as a witness to the 111 seconds of raw truth.
