Today, we are excited to showcase another promising band in the progressive rock genre: Freighter from San Francisco, California, USA. Their formidable track, 'Harbor of Dieppe,' stands as a powerful force in the realm of progressive noise-rock.

Freighter - Harbor of Dieppe (Official Audio)

Freighter is an exceptional technical progressive noise rock band that caught my attention through Metalhead Community Submissions approximately three weeks ago. With their song, 'Harbor of Dieppe,' taken from their latest release 'The Den' in 2019, I was immediately struck by the sheer aggression present in their music. What truly impressed me was how they skillfully infused this intense energy with their unique style. It's a brilliant execution.

'Harbor of Dieppe' can be described as a three-and-a-half-minute war machine. Instead of following conventional patterns, gradually building tension and preparing listeners for what's to come, Freighter boldly unleashes their assault right from the first second. This approach showcases intelligent songwriting, where creativity and innovative decisions shine. While I understand this isn't the first example of such decisions, I am impressed by their deep understanding of music, even in the smallest details.

The remainder of the song maintains an unrelenting intensity, filled with gore, fury, and raw emotion. The tension never wavers, leaving the listener breathless until the very end. It evokes a similar vibe to Metallica's early '80s energy and aggression that once stormed the world.

From a technical standpoint, 'Harbor of Dieppe' boasts impressive standards. This particular style of music demands a specialized production approach, and the producer has done an exceptional job in capturing the essence of the band's desires and potentials. The balance and emphasis on every element have been skillfully executed, resulting in an irresistible energy that permeates the recording. It's an amazing achievement.

Considering these factors, I am thoroughly impressed by Freighter's potential. While 'Harbor of Dieppe' may not be the exact breakthrough they are seeking, I am confident that it will attract a devoted following of die-hard fans.
