Fleshworld - The Map - Song Review - Progressive Post Hardcore from Kraków, Poland

Today, we turn our attention to Fleshworld, an impressive screamo/blackcore/progressive/noise rock/hardcore band hailing from Kraków, Poland. Their latest single release, 'The Map,' showcases their destructive energy and promises great things to come.

Fleshworld - The Map (Official Audio). "The Map" is the first song on Fleshworld's upcoming album - "The Essence Has Changed, but the Details Remain". The album was recorded live at Monochrom Studio by Satanic Audio and mixed/mastered by Sylvain Biguet. The cover photo was taken by Denisse Ariana Pérez. Find it also on Spotify, Apple Music, or Tidal. CD/LP/Digital out on the 11th of October on This Charming Man Records.

Fleshworld came to my attention through Metalhead Community Submissions, and their song 'The Map' immediately stood out. Released in 2019, this track is a testament to their aggression and ability to create intense and loud music. While the song itself may not be the primary focus, it is the undeniable energy that leaves a lasting impression.

Throughout music history, there have been bands that made a difference and influenced millions of people through more than just their melodies. It is about the energy and how it makes us feel. I recall the first time I fell in love with bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera—it was their impact and live performances that captivated me. Fleshworld has the same potential to make a similar impact, given the right platform. As members of the metal community, we are fortunate to have this privilege that other genres of music often lack. This very feeling is what spawned this specific type of music in the first place.

'The Map' is a monstrous song that unleashes total destruction from beginning to end. While it may not fit the traditional mold of death or black metal in terms of tempo, it immediately draws the listener in with its dark and brooding atmosphere. The song's structure and elements are far from simple or standard upon closer listening. It showcases a multitude of chord progressions, with the guitars leading the charge through groundbreaking tones. Combined with the vocalist's intense screams, they create an irresistible energy that transports you onto a sonic battlefield. Brilliant!

Technically, 'The Map' may not possess top-class production standards, but personally, I appreciate everything about its character and spirit. The producer has done a magnificent job in creating this specific sound. Believe me, I have come across numerous examples that fall short in this regard. It's crucial to understand that even the most aggressive music in history can lack satisfaction without the necessary engineering and production. With that in mind, I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the making of this song, including the musicians, for their amazing work.

Taking all these factors into account, I am thoroughly impressed by the potential of Fleshworld. While 'The Map' may not be the breakthrough they are seeking, I am confident that it will attract a dedicated fan base.
