This is solid! The vocals are solid, the guitars are thick, and when y'all drop the hammer on a heavy riff it slams. The early goings can drag a bit, cause there's just not enough differentiation, but the song really opens up at the end

This chorus is the perfect sleeper agent to sneak a super heavy track onto any radio station in the world. Even talk-back!

This is custom made for moshpits, and slowmo bits in film clips that quickly speed up again when the beat hits.

This is an incredible song hidden behind an average mix - get this remixed and mastered asap because holy HELL this is so good! Hits every point it should, sounds original, and every melody and riff just sings

It's swings between massively different moods without sounding like it's just jumping between genres willy-nilly. Love that term: Willy. Nilly.

Real solid old school sound that's building on what's come before, instead of aping it

"Yeah hi, I'm wondering if you serve ridiculously heavy riffs, paired with a chorus so catchy you'll be humming it as soon as the meal is finished and for days after you leave the restaurant?"
Of course we do! We serve nothing but, here at The Tortured Metaphor.

Anyway the song's good.

Really melodic that gets right heavy in the middle, before ending nicely again. Like getting turbulence while flying first class

Every time I think "alright, THIS is the biggest most massive riff in the song," they just play another riff, and it's real big. I wonder if God could write a riff bigger than himself...

Some super solid de-tuned metalcore, with a tasty balance of "off-kilter" and "hell yeah let's pogo the night away"

Half joyful singalong, half super pissed off Stray From The Path style mosh-riffs, all pretty damn good.

Chunky old school death metal, just like mama used to make it (the sarcophagus juice we're not supposed to drink)

Massive doom metal with a positive spin on the heaviness, like getting a hug from an uncle who's dressed as Santa and definitely been hitting the sauce all day

It sounds like the intro song to a gritty reboot of those cartoons and puppet shows that were on after school in the 90's.
