Ascend the Hollow – Swarms Within Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising cyber tech metal band; ASCEND THE HOLLOW, from IRELAND. We have reviewed their powerful piece; Swarms Within, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Ascend the Hollow is a promising deathcore/death metal/metalcore/cyber metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their impressive song; Swarms Within, off from their debut album; Echoes of Existence, which was released in 2019. The band has started their professional careers in 2019 with a full-length album, and another 4 single releases from this album. They certainly show great potential for an up and coming band and please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Swarms Within is a monstrous sounding song with a dark atmosphere, powerful attitude, badass guitar riffage, instrumentation, and vocals. Hands down. Everything sounds perfect, and most importantly, it immediately channels the right feeling to the listener. The overall composition is not that standard nor complex at the same time. They have built a very good balance between these two opposite poles in this example. What I loved the most about this song was their overall attitude. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that there are some specific standards we expect to hear from new bands. In this case, Ascend the Hollow is making the actual difference not only with their attitude, but also with their instrumentation, sound quality, atmosphere, and experience. I can easily say that I wouldn’t expect to hear this characteristic attitude from any upcoming band, and this made me feel like they already know and are already experienced at what they do. On the other hand, the overall vibe of the song has immediately reminded me of Meshuggah with its instrumentation, ideas, sections and also vocal types, especially when he is growling. Well, this is a little bit controversial, to be honest. I don’t have any problems listening and enjoying this song as it is, yet someone might also think that it has too much Meshuggah influence than it should have.
Technically, Swarms Within has top-class standards in every way. I personally loved the overall feeling of the song. Everything sounds super dark, clear, powerful, dynamic, very well recorded, mixed, mastered and most importantly in great harmony. The producer has done an exceptional job by giving life to this record, who I believe has huge credit on this powerful outcome. The technical side of the work is making a huge difference here, especially because of the specific music style. People would be ok listening to thrash, black or rock genres with average sound quality. But this specific style needs this attack to make the impact that it should. In the end, it’s all about the feeling you inject to the listener, isn’t it? And Swards Withing surely is a great example of it!
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am quite positive about Ascend the Hollow. Swarms Within is an impressive work by an up and coming band. All they have to do is to continue making music, working a little bit more on the Ultimate Ascend the Hollow music style, and improve their character in their music. And time will take care of the rest!
