Relestation

Relestation by Tenneseeians Grymloche was a song I needed a couple of go-throughs to nail. It has a bit of an untraditional bild-up, which makes it perhaps not THAT immediately accessible, but then more interesting in the long run. I feel it suffer a bit from "below par" production. A little post-recording treatment to "fatten" the sound up a bit would undoubtedly benefit this song. Especially drums and guitars are a bit thin. But lets not dwell on techs & specs. The feel of it all sends my thoughts slightly in the direction of Sevendust and Alice In Chains; mostly cause there are certain elements that are familiar. But it stands well on its own without such referances, too. The song has a bit of a twist halfway where it becomes a bit more grim (grym? ;-) ) adding both more variation and more egde and some aggression to it. But I can't really get my head around the finishing section of the song- I feel lacks a defined ending or a conclusion, if you will. So I think Grymloch certainly has something here! Relestation definately has its own identity and just the right amount of "familiar elements" to make it both fresh and still accessible. It is heavy and well composed, has a bit of playfulness through the guitar leads and variation in both drums and vocals. All in all, a cool song - I bet it works really weel live! - allthough the ending leaves me hangin'.

Nice!

I love the direction of this song. Heavy, and melodic. Once it picks up, it gets interesting vocally...nice guitar work! Although, maybe the choice of harmonizing notes could have been re-thought in some areas...either way, this is good and original. I'd like to hear some more chunk to the overall mix...but, it sounds good.

What a weird song!

I have to say, I do not know any other band that produces such a sound. Weird, evil, extravagant, independent, fits in no drawer. Malicious, snappy guitar sound, paired with a psychedelic voice that looks a bit like older grunge times (Soundgarden etc.). There are also some industrial-metal influences there. The drumming is also very extravagant, I'm not sure if it's a drum machine. I like independent bands like these off the mainstream. Keep it on.

This is not a mainstream...

A kind of a stoner rock thing. I like the guitar sound and the voice is very nice. This is not a mainstream tune to be played in the radio at any time. But production and performance is very good. Seems that this song here has been mastered and that brings the production in the foreground, makes it more transparent, more crispy and all in all more pressure in the low frequencies. Song writing has a lack of mainstream but a plus of progressive work. Good work!

Dark Harmonies, great groove.

If you love music that makes you feel you're being eaten by some huge monster, this one dishes it out. Pun intended. A lot of wonderfully creepy vocal lines that do the job of transporting to the kingdom of get the f'k down, baby. Great guitar crunch. Then the vocals break out in a cool way with some awesome drumming. Thotoughly enjoyed the ride on this big lizard. These guys ROCK!

Nu-metal?

I'll be honest and say right up front that this isn't even remotely my genre of music. That being said, the production values are high. I like the strange dueling lead guitars and the gummy sounding double bass. The outro caught my attention. I would recommend this to those looking for something new to try or those who already enjoy this genre of metal. Good job.

Let"s rock.

Really like the song. It's a mix of lots of things. Just take a few Deftones, some Pantera with a little piece of Tool. Sound is great and live, it must be war. The music sounds like old Suicidal Tendencies. So for me, it's the perfect mix of all this band with their own identity. Really like this band and I'll check other songs. Don't hesitate if you like pure metal.

Relestation

My fellow Tennesseans Grymloche written this killer track called Relestation. The music is well written and its heavy with a raw attitude. the Production reminds me of the Ross Robison style recording just like on the early Korn and Slipknot albums.

Relestation

Different in a lot of ways. It's nice to find a band that breaks from the mold and tries new things. I can hear the detail that went into the song and it reflects it. Nice job on the song and the recording.

a bit more identity and some sound work

Reminds me slightly of bands like Perfect Circle, Tool, Alice In Chains, Puschifer and deftones. However...I really think it`s a bit to much similarity to others and to little identity and originality. Although that is my personal taste, I enjoy bands who "go all in" instead of trying to hard to sound like something/someone who already exists. The sound and the mix need some serious work, it is a bit to flat for my taste. Both vocals and drums need a whole lot more scwhung to it. Maybe a remaster will fix some of the issues with the flat sound. You asked "not to hold back" so I hope you are not discouraged. You seem to be good musicians. Wish you the best.
