Con Artist - Emerald - Song Review - Modern Djent / Death Metal from Thessaloniki, Greece

Today, we have the pleasure of featuring Con Artist, a promising modern djent/death metal band hailing from Thessaloniki, Greece. In this review, we will delve into their latest song, "Emerald," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Con Artist is a band I discovered two months ago, leaving a lasting impression with their impressive single, "Emerald," released in 2020. While they began their musical journey with the EP titled "Con Artist" in 2018, they have only released one additional single, "Emerald" (2020), to date. I invite you to listen to the song while reading the rest of this article to fully experience the essence of Con Artist's music.

"Emerald" is an awe-inspiring piece of work, brimming with intense emotions, aggression, tension, energy, and irresistible dynamics. Their music style embodies a modern approach, which aligns with the current trends in the genre. Within this framework, these Greek musicians excel, as evidenced by the meticulous execution of their ideas, intricate instrumentation, thoughtful composition, and exceptional sound quality.

The overall atmosphere of "Emerald" is truly remarkable, evoking a sensation akin to descending into the depths of hell. This analogy brings to mind the pioneers of this music style, such as Meshuggah, who have traversed similar sonic landscapes. Upon closer inspection, one can discern Con Artist's skillful incorporation of both slow and fast-paced dynamics and instruments, forming the bedrock of the song's energy and atmosphere. This interplay adds a distinct mood and flavor while the monstrous guitars gallop relentlessly from start to finish. Though I may not be a fervent enthusiast of highly technical and digitally-infused music, I must acknowledge the band's prowess as experienced and proficient musicians.

From a technical standpoint, "Emerald" presents itself with impeccable precision. While I hesitate to delve into intricate technicalities as a listener rather than an expert, I found the overall balance and dynamics to be highly satisfying. It is nearly impossible to resist the sheer intensity and relentless flow of energy throughout the track.

Taking all these aspects into account, I am truly impressed by Con Artist. They possess all the necessary ingredients for success, with the only caveat being the relatively limited number of releases in their discography. As they continue to produce and release more music, I am confident that their career trajectory will soar to new heights.
