Evan Konrad is another promising alternative music artist I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Come On Snake, Let’s Rattle, off from his latest single release with the same title which released in 2019. The first thing that caught my attention while I was listening to Come on Snake, Let’s Rattle was, which might sound unusual to you at first, the level of professionalism in everything that belongs to Evan Konrad. He is truly talented, I give him that. But the things they did and still continue doing together with the team behind him is truly impressive and inspiring.
As you also know from some of my previous articles that I am listening to tons of new music every single day. There are so many people out there making music for so many different reasons. In this example, I can see that Evan Konrad is a serious project. In other words, someone has seen something extraordinary in him. I don’t want you to get me wrong here, there are a lot of different ways to make this thing happen as you can also imagine. And apparently, they are not taking anything for granted here.
Along with everything I have mentioned above, Evan Konrad has a powerful music style that stays in your memory for some time. I can see that there’s a huge Muse influence on his vocals and on his music. Well, I am probably the only person who is this much tolerant of this. But in Evan’s example, it sounded a little bit too much to me. This hardcore influence is not only on his vocals but also on his way of singing, his voice, his way of placing lyrics, music style, instrumentation and so on. Honestly, if you show this song to someone and say it’s Muse’s new release, they’d believe you. It sounds so professionally taken care of, it is rather hard to believe it belongs to an up and coming artist actually.
