Age Factory – Close Eye Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising noise rock band; Age Factory, from Japan. We have reviewed their electrifying song; Close Eye, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Age Factory is another promising noise rock/industrial metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Close Eye, off from their latest single release with the same title which released in 2019. This band, with their sound, music, vibe, and aggression in their music has reminded me of some powerful bands, and their golden times from the ’90s such as Rage Against the Machine, Limp Bizkit and Rammstein. I checked out their discography and realized that they are a quite experienced band, and Close Eye is currently the most recent direction in their music.
Time to time I write about the important/key factors in music here on Metalhead Community and as you might also remember, one of the musts was “the energy”. I believe that every successful band’s/project’s music is based on something, in other words, based on their strengths or on what they are unique about. Some of them are pure creativity, some of them based on live performances, great vocalist’s voice, guitar player’s performance, etc, etc… In this matter, Age Factory here is making a difference with their irresistible energy, just like the bands I have mentioned above. This is what they are great at and they have done the right thing by highlighting it. Close Eye is a typical industrial hit song, put together with very easy going but also stimulating melodies and sections, and produced accordingly. This genre has been extremely trendy since the ’90s and still maintains its freshness thanks to legendary names like Rammstein. In my opinion, one of the reasons that it’s still very active is because of its huge commercial potential. For instance, destructive songs like Close Eye can be a badass soundtrack for a movie (Mission Impossible, The Fast and the Furious, Matrix IV? [hopefully!]), a pc game (Nascar, Doom, The Need For Speed, Max Payne….) or even for any footage. And only this can make a song become unforgettable, just like the Mission Impossible Theme.
Honestly, Close Eye doesn’t have top class technical standards. However, it’s specific production serves the purpose without a doubt. The producer had the right kind of approach to it. Usually, songs in this genre sound extremely clean and clear. Close Eye unlike any of those songs has a quite dirty sound in general. This is a radical decision and I respect Age Factory for that. They didn’t want to sound like the others, instead, build a new one for themselves. This is something that you don’t see happening very often. Apparently, these gentlemen value what they do artistically and this is truly admirable about them. They have created their own version of industrial/noise rock sound which has an extremely stimulating impact on the listener.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Age Factory. All these things about their characteristics above prove how intelligent, experienced and passionate these gentlemen are and I certainly respect them for that. They have huge potential at what they do and I am sure we will (unconsciously) hear their music while playing a video game or watching a movie one day!
Please go ahead and check out the links below if you’d like to find out more about the band, follow them on social media and subscribe to their channels to show your support and also not to miss any upcoming releases.
