Introducing the new Section – Pearls in the Making!
Since there is an insane amount of young, talented, aspiring, yet still unknown musicians out there, we figured we’d give them space here at our blog.
Derelict – Derelict EP
3. Yours to Surpass
Technical Death Metal Outift Derelict, from Montreal, Canada simply blew me away with this EP.
As we all know, Death Metal, has been on an ongoing derivative development. Yet Derelict manage to stay special in a lot of aspects.
First of all, the vocalist actually has a recognizable voice. For me, he sounds more like a traditional swedish vocalist, rather than one of the same exchangeable, guttural death metal vocalists out there.
Another great thing about Derelict is, that they aren’t afraid of moderating their speed. This adds a certain groove to their music. Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t a mid-tempo band. But they aren’t afraid of slowing down when the song demands it.
That’s one of their main advantages – if feels like they always try to do the song itself justice, instead of showing off their musical and technical ability (which is outstanding by the way!)
The production is at a high-standard as well. The bass is audible all the way through and the drums don’t kill the guitars, which is a plus.
The EP features three songs which will also be on Derelict’s next full-length, due out in late 2011.
The song „Perpetuation“ is up for free download!
If you like technical death metal and are tired of bands copying each other and showing off, you're definitely in for a treat!
