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.
Rush, Queen, Guns’n’Roses, Led Zep, Van Halen – their spirits have sneaked into a studio and put together Misty Mound under the banner of West of Corey!
The whole effect is something of a whirlwind of punky energy. It sounds like a band thoroughly enjoying itself. It’s an effervescent track that’s still fizzing even when the last crash fades out…
A brilliant new release, a melodically addictive and energizing soundscape and performance, paying tribute to Skunk Anansie as much as classic driving anthems and even alternative blues rock and roll. The Merrin sound is something of its own right now.
Nobody creates in the way that Seth Angerer does, and certainly not to this degree of professionalism. His creative flair runs wild yet still the stunning musicianship and sound design works hard to impress and captivate right the way through.
Not My World makes for a rather stunning introduction to the band, their sound is immediately powerful, melodic yet hard-hitting, and musically masterful in every way. Delicate synth riffs meet with heavy distortion and a series of captivating performances that prove increasingly impressive as things progress.
“I make this music for me because it is my way of venting and artistically expressing my emotions in a constructive way instead of going online and complaining or doing other things.”
“On the one hand, you have the energy, aggression, primal power and delivery that could melt your face off if you stood too close. And on the other you have melodic sweetness, the calm eye at the centre of the storm.”
Another step in the right direction for modern rock, and yet another hit of creative individuality and musical realness from DeadEyeChokeHold.
