Bleed the Rads caught my attention through Metalhead Community Submissions with their song, 'Truculence,' from their EP 'Wild Sneak,' released in 2019.

'Truculence' stands out as an exceptional piece of work, providing ample opportunities for musicians and artists to learn and draw inspiration. The verse section of the song immediately captivated me with its freely flowing instrumentation, creating an irresistible energy and groove. I found myself completely engrossed, stopping everything else to immerse myself in the music. The attention to detail in the creation and production of this song is evident, reminding me of the saying, 'God is in the details.'

From start to finish, 'Truculence' exudes a beautiful, moody vibe. Its soft and mellow tones make it an ideal accompaniment for various activities such as work, driving, or writing. It has the power to instantly fill the room with its captivating atmosphere, providing a sense of comfort. In terms of commercial potential, the song possesses a distinct quality that holds great promise. Looking closely at the decision-making process, it becomes apparent that the band is both talented and experienced, skillfully prioritizing the details while keeping the overall composition minimal and simple. This careful approach sets the song apart, showcasing exceptional production and creating an immersive and captivating experience.

Technically, 'Truculence' upholds high standards in sound balancing and overall ambiance. Although I am unsure whether the band worked with a producer or self-produced the song/album, it is evident that the individual responsible understood the band's desires, potential, and style, contributing to the irresistible outcome. While listening, I briefly questioned the authenticity of some instrument sounds, pondering whether they were real acoustic instruments or software-generated. However, let me clarify that this is not a criticism but rather a contemplation. In today's digital age, embracing technology in music production is commonplace and acceptable as long as it serves the purpose.

Considering these aspects, I am truly impressed by Bleed the Rads. 'Truculence' is a marvelous song that showcases their exceptional potential and musicianship skills. They have carved out a unique niche, providing them with a fantastic opportunity to continue creating music and gaining recognition for their distinctive style.
