Tuesday’s Top Tasty Tracks
Torch – Emmure
Trust me, I can’t believe I’m promoting an Emmure track either. But this song is an absolute banger. For those who don’t know, Emmure has a notorious reputation for objectifying women and graphic/violent imagery in their music. And by no means do I support any of that. Because of this negativity (and other outside factors), all members except the lead singer quit the band in 2015.
This is the resurgence of Emmure, backed by a new label and boasting talent from both Glass Cloud and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza. You don’t need to know who these bands are, all you need to know is that they are far more technical than Emmure has ever been. It is because of this reason, that the music is so well put together, that I can’t forget this track. I’ve listened to it ten times today already. Frankie has always had a powerful scream, but this band is so talented that I had to share.
It’s Not Over Yet – Owls In The Attic
I don’t know much about this band, and other than a bunch of sub-par covers, had never heard a song by them before. But this song definitely grabbed my attention. The intro entices me as I love catchy, djenty riffs. The screamer has a great range, and keeps the listener engaged with every push and pull of the vocals. I honestly just can’t help but nod my head to how groovy the track is. If you like heavy tracks, this is for you.
Ghost – Silverstein
Silverstein has been around for 16 years now, but can still create great music. I’ve really been into Shane Told’s podcast “Lead Singer Syndrome” lately, so I’m sure that helps with why I like this song so much, but I honestly think they’ve created a great track here. The riff is wildly catchy, and as usual they nail the verse chorus verse chorus breakdown/bridge chorus formula. It definitely isn’t a boundary-pushing song, but as a band who helped establish the genre, they are definitely still on top of their game.
.NEVAREHT – Crooks UK
I would like to introduce you to your new favourite band. These guys blow my mind constantly, and this guys voice is absolutely incredible. The harmonies he pulls out are often jaw-dropping. Crooks are an extremely original band, changing the songs direction at the drop of a pin. And their drummer is one of my favourites, as he’s so original. They truly are a band that isn’t too concerned with genre they are associated with, and because of that they are able to create music that can be appreciated by almost anybody. Please please give this song a chance. It won’t disappoint.
