A case of loving the message, but despising the delivery...
Straight away, I need to say, this is not an extra Track of the Week, but just a review that I feel I needed to do.
A week ago today (4th of March for those of you reading in the future), Asking Alexandria dropped the 3rd single off their upcoming album Like A House On Fire, entitled 'Antisocialist'... and I hate it.
One of the new features this year was my Track of the Week, it's something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I finally found the time in 2019. I’ve had a lot of fun with it, meaning I intend to continue in 2020, but more importantly it helped me discover more bands and music than what I normally would. With this list I’d like to highlight the 10 best tracks I’ve heard in the last 12 months with most of them coming from our Track of the Week series.
You know a track is good right as it starts sometimes, like it's destiny.
Right from the opening notes I knew I was going to enjoy Bleed from Within's 'Alive', it just has that unexplainable feel to it. The Glasgow 5 piece have mixed Metalcore with Melodic Death Metal elements, while also bringing some Groove Metal to the party and the end result is an amazing assault on the listeners ears.
An interesting take on a classic song, done in a style no one would have thought it to be played in.
Confession time kids, I am in love with an Italian Goddess that isn't Mags! Shock horror right? No, the angel I'm sharing my affection with is Cristina Scabbia, the front woman of Lacuna Coil. It has nothing to do with her looks (though she is stunning), it's her voice.
