Dan Barracuda is another promising experimental music artist I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; I, the Lurker, off from his latest full-length album; Wavelength, which released in 2019. First, I must warn you that Dan Barracuda is an artist, whose music is not for everyone. I mean, he has his own unique way of doing things, which reminds me of Radiohead time to time, and you need to spend some time to get familiar with it first. Then you’ll start to understand the value, the greatness behind.
Metalhead Community readers might remember Dan Barracuda. We have reviewed his music earlier and introduced to our readership on Heavy Metal T-Shirts’ blog. This time he is back with a brand new full-length album where apparently he took his experimentation to the next level. I, the Lurker is a mesmerizing song, mostly structured with some atmospheric and soundtrackwise elements all the way. Every time I listen to this song, it reminds me of some horror/thriller kinda images and footages Some of you might remember that I am a big fan of horror movies, and the general vibe of this song represents one feeling to me; anxiousness/disturbance. Honestly, this is not the music style I’d like to listen every day. But I can’t deny the impact and the potential of it. This is not something that everybody can come up with. As you can see/hear, there are some serious instrumentations along with its creative ideas as well. Undoubtedly, Dan Barracuda is making a big difference with his understanding of music once again.
