Mysterious Alt-Metal Artist ALESTI Shares New Single ‘Flawed Design’

Featuring Trevor Borg (Wind Walkers) on lead vocals


Faceless alternative metal artist ALESTI has shared his new single ‘Flawed Design’, featuring Trevor Borg (Wind Walkers). Remaining on-brand, the track sounds huge and modern, while highlighting the slower, more emotive side of ALESTI‘s sound.


For each of his songs, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist ALESTI leaves vocal duties to a different singer. Past collaborations include DayseekerThe Word Alive and Loveless to name but a few.

ALESTI comments: “‘Flawed Design’ expresses a sense of frustration and longing in a relationship or situation that has become repetitive and toxic. It reflects on being stuck in a cycle of making the same mistakes over and over, and returning to the same patterns despite knowing that it’s harmful. The lyrics explore a sense of hopelessness and the idea that the relationship is doomed to repeat itself.”




ALESTI captures a unique and modern brand of alternative metal, inspired by the ambience of post-hardcore and sprinkled with elements of electronica. Since the project’s inception in 2018, the artist has independently released two EPs and a number of singles, achieving over 30 million streams across platforms. His music currently has been played on Kerrang! Radio, attracts 260K monthly listeners on Spotify, and has been featured on a wide range of editorial playlists across Spotify and Twitch.
