(NO CLEAN SINGING)
There’s a lot to like about this multifaceted and dynamic new single, including the ghostly piano notes and bleak ambient tones that open and close the song. In between those spectral, reflective moments you get music that’s even more enthralling, but dramatically more powerful.
In the first half of the track, the music is beleaguered and depressive in its atmosphere but still hauntingly beautiful. The tandem of harsh vocal expressions — scarring shrieks and deep, gruesome roars — provide a hint of the ferocity to come. Just past the mid-point, the riveting surge arrives, in an explosion of blasting drums, exhilarating riffing, and a sparkling guitar solo.
The music drives hard toward the finish, becoming white-hot in its fury while still preserving the spectral beauty of the song’s opening — and the reappearance of the piano in the midst of the maelstrom is an inspired touch.
As you can tell, I’m very high on this track. I’ve had it on repeat all morning, and have a feeling it will be a frequent companion through the dark winter days ahead. I hope you like it just as much.
