The song starts out with a clean, almost folky guitar part, before it kicks in with the main-riff. This is a song that I feel like I should like more that I actually do. It's meatier, it's darker, and it's just allaround much more kick-ass, and a good testimony to just how much of a difference production quality and small additions to the soundscape can matter in a song. But there's this part where Nisse does a semi-long note, before continuing into the next lyric, and the transition feels kinda abrupt and unnatural to me. Also, experienced death metal drummer, Tommy Magnusson, was hired for the project. The review is therefore entirely unprofessional and revolves around the subjective tastes of the reviewer with little regard for objective analysis.
It too has been removed, which I thought was nice. It goes for a bit more mellow approach to both the verse and the chorus. Flawless is the word to describe it. The chorus is written in such a way that when you listen to him sing, you'd swear you were listening to James Hetfield in a Metallica song. Then it went a few months where I didn't listen to it, and I eventually forgot all about how the song went. When Rush was first released as a demo single, I wasn't all that into it.
Such a rare treat, and redeems the breakdown at least somewhat. Now normally, that would also make it one of an individual's favorite tracks, but honestly. Not technicly a bad thing, though. Discovery släpptes i maj 2017, och följdes upp av releasefester och en 14-dagars turné i Spanien och Portugal. In conclution, it's a song that I think had potential to be much more complete than it is.
But not because it's not a good song. The added production quality has helped this song immensely. That is not to say that it's a bad track. Also they removed the subtle little synth that also used to play during that part where Tommy spins his drumstick in the music video. The first chorus also segways absolutely perfectly into the second verse. I sincerely hope we'll see more of that in future material.
Though luckily, that part isn't nearly as distracting. The nit-pick: The synth that opens the song is insanely similar to the music in an old formula 1 game I used to play as a kid. On later songs, I'll be picking on how I think the songs should've stayed more faithful to their demo-versions, but this is one time where I think they could've been a lot less faithful, for the better. In conclution: While not all the songs quite hit the mark, and despite a few minor hiccups here and there, this is still a thuroughly enjoyable album, and leagues beyond several other similar bands. The nit-pick: There's been changes since the demo-version. You know that thing that Post-Hardcore bands likes to do where it sounds like they're trying to play a certain part, but they don't have enough skill to play it, and so they just clumsily wiggle their pick and fingers across the strings? The nit-pick: Changes from the demo version.
I really liked that synth. It sounds like the part that builds up to the chorus. And it's not a ballad about relationships, which in itself is a nice change from the norm. But for me, it just doesn't work very well. With that in mind, let's get to it.
I just didn't like it, and whenever it would come on, I would take skip it. Not only is it fast and fairly heavy, but it's also insanely catchy and melodic. And beyond that, there isn't really much to say about this track that hasn't been said about the other songs already. In essence, they're a perfect band for those who needs something ease them into the world of harsher Metal. Just a neat addition that I felt like pointing out.
I hope they do like many others have done, and do some acoustic versions of their other songs, because I'd really like to hear him do more of this. The nit-pick: Don't have any. Sleep Is For The Weak. The nit-pick: Aside from the chorus thing. And it is severely headbangable or in my case, upper-bodybangable.
It was also the very first song I heard by this band. Which is a bit disappointing, and certainly doesn't help the chorus. There's something to it that is just. The song lacks a proper chorus. It was also my favorite part of the song.
