The second of the eight tracks on the album – Apocalyptic Hearts – showcases the ability of the quintet to deliver music that has a thumping pace whilst underneath, like a geological-plate, the slowly revolving melody is the real strength of the song through which a powerful yet deftly controlled vocal shines brightly.

As I May – Hero – Single Review

The Finnish melodic-metal quartet As I May released the single Hero on the 4th.

As I May

As I May

I am aware that I have mentioned it previously though I don’t feel it is repetition for the sake of repetition to comment that musicians from Scandinavia are often able to deliver music which combines what on the surface are polar-opposites that can’t possibly work, yet turn it in to a concept of intrigue and complexity that fascinates – very often melodic-metal.

In HeroAs I May provide the listener with a dark underbelly of fire that opens its wings and glides gracefully through room like a sparrow-hawk searching for prey.

Slamming through the speakers, their latest single, BEND/BREAK claws chunks out of the mortar as the music roars through the room in hurtling tempo. Drown This City keep tight reign on the resulting output and are effortlessly able to shift the dynamics of the track with unexpected bridges of melodies and softness slowing down proceedings.
