Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter and drummer Miss Randall drops her new single, “Hell Come Undone,” taken from her upcoming EP, Desertations Vol. 1, set for release on November 10, 2023.
Miss Randall explains, “Hell Come Undone’ has multiple layers of understanding, but it’s connected to a playful take on the Aeon of the Kali Yuga, a destructive but regenerative cycle in time which we are living in, according to Hinduism.”
Known as a heavy metal musician, Miss Randall wrote and played with her former band, L.A.-based metal trio Rusty Eye. She and German producer/guitarist Waldemar Sorychta formed a unique metal band that will announce its first single, followed by a debut album. Waldemar has produced albums for bands such as Tiamat, Lacuna Coil, Samael, and Moonspell, as well as being considered a virtuoso guitarist himself while in Grip Inc.
Holding dual citizenship in the U.S. and Mexico, Miss Randall grew up in CDMX, Mexico, where she began singing, dancing, and drumming. While still in high school, she joined Rusty Eye, which released a series of singles and five albums, as well as two live albums.
One of the first rock/metal female drummers, Miss Randall has performed at venues like The Roxy, Viper Room, Regent, and Whisky a Go Go. Most recently, she collaborated with Iranian film auteur Soheil Afifeh, fulfilling the duty of composer and producer for his art folk-horror short The Deb, currently being selected in the festival circuits.
Miss Randall has collaborated with Sergio Arau y Los Heavy Mex (Botellita de Jerez), Fredrik Klingwall (Anima Morte), Claudio Simonetti (Goblin), Alex Mitchell (Circus of Power), and Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc./Voodoocult).
“Hell Come Undone” opens on heavy guitars riding powerful percussion. Drenched in flavors of retro rock, the harmonics form a rich, vibrant melody topped by Miss Randall’s powerhouse vocals, dripping with wicked tones, imbuing the lyrics with ominous textures, as if sensing imminent events.
Radiant vocal harmonies give the tune glowing depth and dimension, accentuating the grand, evocative voice of Miss Randall. A snarling guitar solo infuses the harmonics with grimacing licks, adding fierce incandescence.
Thrumming with ‘80s rock appeal, “Hell Come Undone” pulsates with muscular momentum as Miss Randall’s voice lights it up.
