Freighter – Harbor of Dieppe Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising progressive rock band; Freighter, from San Francisco, USA. We have reviewed their war machine song; Harbor of Dieppe, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Freighter is another promising technical progressive rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Harbor of Dieppe, off from their latest release; The Den, which was released in 2019. As you might remember from some of my previous articles that I am a big fan of aggressive elements in music. When I first listened to Harbor of Dieppe I was truly blown away by the level of aggression in Freighter’s music. And the most impressive thing was the way they have blended this tense feeling with their own style. Brilliant.
Harbor of Dieppe is a three and a half minutes long war machine. Instead of following the traditional ways, gearing up the tension step by step and preparing the listeners for what’s coming up next, the gents have chosen to unleash hell right away from the first second. This, my friends, is what I call intelligent songwriting. Being creative and making innovative decisions like these are two separate things. I am very well aware that this song is not the first example of this kind of decisions. Yet, I am impressed by their way of understanding music even by this small detail.
The rest of the song is full of gore, blood, and anger if to be more precise with the proper feeling. The tension never drops and leaves the listener breathless until the end. As you also remember that Metallica once stormed the world with their energy and aggression in their music in the early ’80s. I’ve felt the same kinda vibe from these gentlemen as well.
Technically, Harbor of Dieppe has quite impressive standards as well. I think this kind of very specific music needs a special approach production-wise, and apparently, the producer has done an amazing job. He understood the band, their desires, and potentials, balanced and highlighted everything in a very tasty manner. I loved the way they put this irresistible energy into the tape. Amazing job.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by the potential of Freighter. This might not be the kick they are looking for but I am sure Harbor of Dieppe is going to bring so many die-hard fans into the club.
