My selection last week in Trivium might have disappointed a few. Until then, most of the bands have been more underground on purpose – I want to expose you to some good stuff you wouldn’t find otherwise.
To rebound from Trivium, I swung as opposite as I could this week, and went with Solitude. In the song Under Fading Skies, they sport some powerful screams and vocals and blend them well with the drums and guitar. Vocals aren’t refined yet, but I love the controlled high pitched screams.
I’d like to see some more creativity in the future from this band. I think they have the talent to do something original, they just need to find themselves. That’s what Metal Monday is about though, discovering good bands that have the potential to explode. You’ll hear them here first, so keep stopping back and make sure you subscribe.
(0:22 – 1:00) — Good example of the vocal presence.
(2:35 – close) — Smooth breakdown and finish.
Song Rating – 8.2/10
