Berna - Covered - Song Review - Modern Metalcore/Screamo from Natal, Brazil

Today, we delve into the realm of modern metalcore and screamo with Berna, a promising band hailing from Natal, Brazil. Our focus is their captivating song, "Covered," off their fascinating debut release, the EP titled "Deadwords" released in 2020. Join us as we explore the character, style, story, and potential of this remarkable track.

Berna is a promising screamo/modern metalcore band that caught my attention through Metalhead Community Submissions approximately three months ago. Their song "Covered" showcases a compelling blend of easy-listening structure, powerful riffage, exceptional dynamics, stimulating ideas, great energy flow, and catchy melodies throughout. The band channels their energy directly to the listener, and I'm enthralled by the level of emotion and aggression seamlessly blended and balanced within the song. It's crucial for a band to effectively reflect their energy, especially when striving to make a difference with specific emotions, such as the aggression displayed in this example. Despite the abundance of metalcore, deathcore, and screamo bands making similar music in a formulaic manner, Berna manages to distinguish themselves with their collective work in both instrumentation and composition—an admirable feat for an up-and-coming band.

"Covered" as a whole leaves a significant impact, with its memorable qualities resonating even after just one listen. This adds further value to their potential as a band. While Berna is still relatively new, "Covered" undeniably demonstrates their great potential, evident in their understanding of music, experience, delightful blend, and production.

Technically, "Covered" stands at top-class standards in every way. It is one of the best-sounding songs I have encountered within this specific genre in quite some time. The production is clean, clear, well-recorded, engineered, balanced, mixed, and exhibits remarkable harmony. The overall sound of the song is so captivating that one could listen to it for hours without losing the excitement. I wholeheartedly congratulate the producer and the musicians for their exceptional work. It is a bulletproof production, hands down.

Considering all these aspects, I am thoroughly impressed by Berna. "Deadwords" serves as an exceptional debut for their musical careers, exceeding expectations in terms of the high standards one would typically associate with an emerging band. I am certain that the feedback they receive for their work will serve as motivation for these talented musicians from Brazil to continue creating records and delivering captivating live performances.
