Song of the Week: Transcend The Realm – Plurality of Worlds

As you all know, being the genre experts we all are, if you combine progressive metal, death metal and ‘core, you get progressive deathcore. When it’s done this well it goes beyond that tag and fits into my favourite genre, Mammal Music. Welcome to the top drawer of my mental filing cabinet, Transcend The Realm.

The structure of this song is deeply satisfying, from the repeated arpeggios at the beginning, through the intense and beautifully brutal growled vocals and back to the arpeggios at the end. In my never humble opinion, this song reflects an artful approach to composition. Transcend The Realm blows your socks off, but does so with enough musical sensitivity to make it feel like a soothing foot-massage.

The song is from the band’s newly released full-length debut album, “Severed From Reality”. Now this is an album I need, and so does Tiny Tiny Cakey Kitten, the real metal expert in my office.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
