Review by Glen Parkes

The fusion of musical titans is often a rare treat in the ever-evolving realm of rock and P.O.D. (Payable on Death) yet again exemplifies this fusion with their latest single, “Afraid to Die.” Teaming up with Jinjer’s powerhouse vocalist, Tatiana Shmayluk, P.O.D. delivers an explosive track that reverberates with raw emotion and unyielding intensity.

The band’s earlier single “DROP” set an aggressive tone, earning rapid acclaim from various music platforms. However, with “Afraid to Die,” P.O.D. takes a different sonic route. Marcos Curiel, the band’s guitarist, aptly describes the track as a convergence of cryptic melodies and triumphant tones. He states, “It has storytelling rhymes and chugged verses, and a wide open, melodic yet semi-morbid, chorus. It’s anthemic in every sense of the word.”

The addition of Tatiana Shmayluk’s distinct vocals infuses a new dimension into P.O.D.’s already electrifying sound. Curiel expresses admiration for Shmayluk’s contribution, highlighting the remarkable chemistry that ignited during the collaboration. This fusion encapsulates P.O.D.’s deep dive into the human experience—navigating themes of love, fear, integrity, and the significance of relationships, particularly with family and friends.

“Afraid to Die” stands as a testament to P.O.D.’s ability to resonate with listeners on a profound level. The track not only delves into the complexities of existence but also serves as an embodiment of profound emotions and life’s inherent challenges.

As the band continues to evolve and explore diverse musical landscapes, their latest offering showcases a harmonious blend of powerful lyricism, infectious melodies, and an emotional resonance that strikes a chord with audiences.

The accompanying video for “Afraid to Die” is a visual feast that complements the track’s intensity. It encapsulates the essence of the song’s themes, weaving a narrative that is both compelling and visually stunning, further enhancing the listener’s experience.

P.O.D.’s collaboration with Tatiana Shmayluk on “Afraid to Die” serves as a testament to the band’s enduring relevance and their ability to push musical boundaries. It’s a riveting addition to their discography, marking a chapter that further solidifies their status as rock icons capable of creating electrifying and emotionally charged music.
