Heavy, hardcore metal of the highest order – blending the darkest lyrics & the rawest screams with a distorted rock soundscape & fragments of electronic sound-play.
Awakening the rock soul within, DEARBONES have achieved a guitar sound with this project that’s all at once intensely nostalgic, gritty, and brilliantly well-suited to the emotional, passionate mood of the band’s songwriting.
What starts out as a fairly simple, nostalgic and deeply introspective track – mellow emo-rock from the nineties comes to mind – soon evolves into a uniquely creative piece, which stylishly balances the delicacy of indie-pop with the absolute grit and roar of metal.
The simple & universal message of the song is beautifully conveyed: Live now, for you, because everyone dies. Calling on the sounds of 90’s & early ‘00s alternatives, Zhiaojiabang is the Senses Fail for the new generation.
