Title: Sky Burial
Release: February 2020
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: An brutalisation of consisting aggressive & technically riffs & cord changes, with melodic moments and breakdowns, palm muting pickings of the bass.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: A mixture an aggressive & harsh screaming, while incorporating clean/(somewhere in the middle, there is a moment of) shrieking vocals.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Frantic incessant tempo-changing beats & double-bass, that is full of energy and adrenaline
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: An explosion of over four-minutes of extreme & dynamism music, A Dying Reign is no ‘Killswitch Engage’, these guys are dark & grim for been a metalcore band, [like the group I reviewed ‘Isolate’].
Within the first (approx) thirty seconds of the song, the riffs have this nerve-racking feel, and if you listen to the riffs, (for me) you have this dense sound of an emergency (warning) siren. Overall the music is mind-blowing, brutal and filling of aggressive & technically! Even the lyrical theme & song title is grim, dark, with a powerful meaning. “Piece By Piece we Fade” * “A Life Consumed by Shame”.
*full of dynamism*
* entertaining* powerful* * dark & aggressive* *mind-blowing*
extreme & dynamism
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Is one of these things, when you look at it, You go ok, then it’s when you are looking around within the picture, something catches the naked eye! [Have a look] The grey look to the artwork, (even the picture itself) matches that of the band’s song title, lyrics & music.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole song!
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none.
