𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: For this single, the riffage is slow (dark/light melancholic) with chord changes, rhythm & progression sections, creating a sincere & dark-hypnotizing feel!
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: The vocals are a mixture of softness & melancholy
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Combination of clear slow beats too fast/ furious post-punk drumming
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: It's a privilege to rereview Memories of a Dead Man, after having the band previous's featured here [click here for the review], back in 2019. The last single 'Inner Shout' was a breath of experimental metal. Welcoming back with their new single 'Wavelength' for the forthcoming album, to be released in the summer of 2020
Wavelength is a -Esque of Diary of Dreams song 'The Wedding.' How the song is compositions of a build-up of softness and progressive - creating a beautiful song, with a crisp sound,- [wall of sound] - that is both powerful & meaningful. With tempo sections, strong dark melodies/rhythm sections, with an overall deliverance of a modern atmospheric/ambient sound, while distilling an intoxicating (a tint of) doom metal, prog/ experimental metal, post-punk.
This song WAVELENGTH is a progressive and hovering title presenting the new male vocals of MOADM. "THIERRY H." is softer, airy and refined
WAVELENGTH is the typical kind of answer one can get when one goes off from the normality highway, from the moment his inner richness and differences are revealed. "Let's stay tasteless into the mass."
*unique & catchy*
*dark & intense* *energetic & enjoyable*
*wall of sound - Awe-Inspiring music* *pure beauteous & powerful*
experimental post-core metallers
are an alternation of dark/haunting atmosphere
by creating their own musical and visual identity
