Black Coast - Void - Song Review - Groove, Grunge, Noise Rock from Stoke-on-Trent, England

Today I am writing about a promising noise rock band, Black Coast, from Stoke-on-Trent, England, with their impressive song, Void.

Black Coast came to my attention with Void, off from their debut album, Outworld, and left me no choice but to feature their impressive work on Metalhead Community. The song has influences from mainstream rock and metal, specifically from the 90s and 2000s, and confuses the listener with its world-class standards.

The main role in Void's success would be the sound production for me. The song simply sounds massive. The magic in their sound design fits the musicality perfectly and brought Black Coast to another level in the music industry. In my book, the originality value in this sound design is impressive, where having such standards in your debut album is the highest point you can get in your career.

The influences in Void reminded me of many different styles such as groove metal, progressive rock, noise rock, post-rock, grunge rock, and nu-metal. I remember hearing Alice In Chains, Puddle of Mudd, Staind, and even Nirvana throughout my listen, appreciated the pure energy the collective captured only in their debut album. The approach to sound design was the significant difference these English gentlemen made, nobody can confuse their sound with anyone else in this specific genre now.

Lastly, the collective is truly gifted, and created something that can become something big in the future. Their musical combination idea is a solid one, and the result is obvious when it comes together with vision and talent.

On the other side of the coin, I've got nothing to add except one, that I couldn't watch the Void music video until the end because of flashing images. I usually give my full attention to details when it comes to watching music videos, this time I just listened to this song only on audio.

When I put all these into account, I'd like to say that I had a great time listening to Void, which earned its place in Metalhead Community's The Next Big Thing In Rock Playlist on Spotify.
