Strach Attack is one of few artists in the fandom that I can pick out right away just by the mixdown, and I think that says enough about the quality. Coming at you with chuggy wobs and an attitude that only us Canucks can bring to the table, and right after a fire EP no less – we get THE PVNK. I see you my dude, I see you. Tune in for a fire beat and those aforementioned chuggy wobs, you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to check out Strach’s Bandcamp for his Burnout EP as well.
The two things I have been looking for, first and foremost in new music lately – before the mixdown, sound design and production – is an element of unpredictability, and that special vibe. You know that one vibe, where you can tell the artist just went absolutely ham and gave no hecks, darns, or tarnations? The kind of vibe where you can just tell they were following their own groove, instead of copy pasting. This track has both in droves. Honestly, I would’ve been happy with it even if the pre-drop was the drop. Those beefed up kicks and that metallic snare are candy to my ears, and then – T H E N he hits you with that fire drop. Hoo boy I need a minute.
Speaking of said vibe and being fresh out of hecks, bank pain also hit us with a bag of audio bricks. (In the good way, don’t worry man). I said it before and I’ll say it again, I love it when I listen to something and have to ask myself, “yo what genre even is this?”. This is that, it’s got reeses that’ll make granddaddy ‘106 shed a tear, a beautiful bridge/outro that’ll make human granddaddy shed a tear, and just that scary-but-pretty vibe that I always seem to float towards like a moth to a lamp. Celestia take the wheel, this stuff is golden. Don’t sleep on bank or Prog, guys.

The second I saw Daybreaker in that episode I thought to myself, “Oh sweet Celestia of Equestria, this is going to inspire a lot of good music.” Frozen Night delivered big time with more of his excellent Orchestral Metal. The haunting melody of the choir leading into the epic swells, tastefully infused with metal, gives it such a beastly vibe. Seriously, brace yourself for one hell of a ride, this one is definitely a keeper. Be sure to grab it on his bandcamp and check out his other tunes too!
