BLOODLINES HEVEL EP marries classic metalcore with a distinctly progressive twist, and sees the Gulf Coast four-piece taking cues from bands like FOR TODAY, IMPENDING DOOM, and CONVICTIONS.
HEVEL was written to address seasons of life, with the band taking inspiration from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.
Ecclesiastes uses the word meaningless a lot which is translated to HEVEL in Hebrew and has a different interpretation.
The word hevel in the context of the book means vanishing vapor or smoke.
So in essence, Ecclesiastes wasnt necessarily saying that the work and the seasons we go through in life are meaningless, but rather they are just fleeting, ever changing.
Like vapor, here one minute and gone the next.
