Precisely the right kind of song to re-ignite the fire and fierceness that is the 3Mind Blight signature style.
I think people turn to heavier music to find truth, understanding and to be a part of something real. Rock and metal music usually tends to be honest and upfront about issues and situations and circumstances, instead of being about “what do people want to hear?”
Blending elements of Slipknot, Korn & even the less heavier artists of a simpler time, the sound meanders in a creatively unique fashion, crafting its own clear identity along the way.
Written some years ago, during a time of depression and unsettling self-doubt, Panic works hard to overcome the fear of failure – to see regret as a greater threat to the future.
Ben Stout fronts the deeply atmospheric, contemplative project Memory Sphere, offering up an album of original songs and compositions that prove powerfully immersive, emotive, and a pleasure to escape within.
Easily a band on their own unique trajectory right now, Ukraine’s Vovkulaka bring through a fuzz-thick electronic-rock sound, loaded with distortion, gravel, passion, yet plenty of anthem-like moments of melody and memorable chants.
This doesn’t feel like a cover, it feels like original work. This ability to storm at speed along the line between heavy metal and electronic experimentation is rarely showcased to such an impressive degree.
AMEL D whispers truthfully, then screams out on our behalf as this heavy and awakening hook kicks into gear.
Creatively fusing the heavy hit of metal with the experimental nature of alternative EDM, Feed The Weird drives with a decidedly cinematic style on this album – one that feels immediately well-suited to the Mad Max or Dark Sci-Fi corners of entertainment.
The dynamics of Stuck in the Way move between tribal boisterousness to unexpected percussion effects to wah-wah guitar phrasing to tightly syncopated vocals and siren pedal guitar notes… it’s a rich portrait that The Unbroken are painting and it’s safe to say that there’s never a dull moment.
What you have here is a mash-up of traditional and modern electric instruments that looks risky on paper but sounds great in practice. I’m put in mind of the solo albums by ex-Marillion frontman, Fish, around the time of his Internal Exile album. I wasn’t sure what to expect coming to this fresh, but the accomplishment is undeniable.
Celebrating all manner of aspects from gratitude to relationships to overcoming or learning from mistakes, this EP in full showcases a talented and versatile artist and songwriter, as well as offers a playlist that’s beautifully heartfelt, eclectic, and deeply human.
