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.
