Avaunt – T.O.R.N. Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising progressive metal band; Avaunt, from the USA. We have reviewed their successful song; T.O.R.N., along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Avaunt is another promising progressive metalcore band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a month ago with this song; T.O.R.N., off from their latest single with the same title, which was released in 2019. The band has a delicious blend of different music styles. When you listen to it carefully you’ll hear influences from the 90’s heavy metal (bands like Blind Guardian), 00’s metal (bands like Staind), modern metalcore (Killswitch Engage) and some other atmospheric music bands (Riverside). The band has only 3 single releases so far and managed to get quite impressive streams on Spotify already. Well, let’s have a closer look!
T.O.R.N. is a successful piece of work where the band shows potential with their combinations, feeling, energy, atmosphere, and ideas. First of all, I can see that they have a different approach to nowadays “metalcore” which I am so fuckin’ happy to hear. This small detail separates them from a planet full of other metalcore/deathcore bands. As I have mentioned in some of my previous articles, metalcore is the most trendy metal music style lately. Hands down, facts are facts. But the problem is that %99 of metalcore bands are copying everything about each other’s music and this is boring as hell. Sorry guys but I have zero tolerance for that music. In this matter. T.O.R.N. is making a difference with its different perspective.
On the other hand, the band has focused more on the general atmosphere and energy than the technical side of it. The general vibe is usually dark yet the energy flows perfectly until the end. Unlike classic metalcore music style, their mix of the 90s metal and 00’s djent influences has provided them a new path where they can create their own authentic music style in time. This, my friends, what I call potential. And I respect them for this. They might not have written the most impressive metal song ever, but they have a character in their sound that they can work on. And believe me, you don’t see this happening every day.
Technically T.O.R.N. has above average standards in every way. Apparently, they have faced some difficulties in this matter (I checked out their other songs as well). Unfortunately, nowadays musicians are bounded to know production/recording techniques as well as their musical responsibility. People who are already in recording and production business are creating amazing things and this has an important role in their success (you basically save $5000 from every album recording session). Those who are not that familiar with the process are struggling to find their ultimate sound, and this is not that easy. However, no worries at all. Avaunt’s current sound might not be the best, yet it is good enough to channel the energy to the listener. You can easily feel the energy and follow the whole story. And most importantly, you listen to the song and you have this melody still playing in your memory for some time.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am quite positive about Avaunt’s future. They have the potential and their music style is giving hope. All they need to do is to continue making music and working hard. That’s all!
