I was going through a small dry spell finding good music, but I think it’s finally over. For this week, I chose an upcoming band called Chaos Beyond. They have some solid transitions from singing to screaming. Room for improvement, but a good vibe all around.
Specifically, I wanted to highlight Crawling in the Dark. Can’t go wrong with a strong vocalist, and this song highlights one in addition to a strong drumming performance. I’ve wondered how some bands have explosive drums, and other have straight garage sounding drums. The extra time and effort in the recording studio needs to be praised.
The only real negative I can muster is a lack of solos. Perhaps an accapella verse or two, and a drum or guitar solo — something to diversify them.
(0:00) – Drums, screaming, singing
(2:08) – Simple and smooth breakdown
