Con Artist is a promising deathcore band I discovered two months ago with this impressive song, Emerald, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Con Artist has started their careers with an EP called; Con Artist in 2018. Since then, the band only released one more single, Emerald (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Emerald is an impressive piece of work with tons of hatred, aggression, tension, energy, and irresistible dynamics. Their music style has a very modern approach in general. This music style is very trendy right now, and these Greek gentlemen are one of the successful performers of it, as you can also tell by listening carefully to their ideas, instrumentation, composition, and sound quality.
The overall feeling of the track is truly impressive. You feel like listening to the music of hell from time to time, which I used to use this phrase for one of the pioneers of this music style, Meshuggah. When I listened to the song carefully, I realized that they have a good mix of slow and fast-moving dynamics/instruments. This, actually, is the foundation of the energy level and the atmosphere of the song. It adds a certain mood, a flavor to the song, while monstrous guitars gallop from the beginning to the end. I am not a fan of super digital sounding technical music such as this one, yet I have to admit that they all are experienced and advanced musicians.
