KuuDelta – My Safe Place Song Review
Kuudelta is another promising progressive/doom metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a month ago with this song; My Safe Place, off from their full-length debut album; Beautiful Illusion, which was released in 2019. This band, in my opinion, is making a difference the most with their dark vibes, moody atmosphere, melodic elements, and soundtrack-ish partitions in their music. I personally fell in love with the general mysterious atmosphere when I listened to the song for the first time, and immediately decided to bring them to Metalhead Community Magazine readership’s attention. I strongly recommend you to check it out while reading the rest of the article.
First of all, My Safe Place is a very successful piece of work that summarizes Kuudelta’s general music style on this album. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that we, people who work in the music industry, are mostly looking for the potential than any other characteristics from up and coming bands. In this matter, Kuudelta has some authentic things about them without a doubt. When I take a closer look at their music, I’d say that they have a delicious mix of different influences. When I listened to My Safe Place for the first time, the introduction of the song has reminded me of one of the greatest horror thriller video games of all time; Resident Evil. This is super cool. You listen to Kuudelta and their music is taking to a recognizable atmosphere. Think about it! These kinds of mysterious vibes have always been my favorite and I know only one band who had a similar vibe in music; Opeth, who is also Scandinavian.
Furthermore, the beautiful vocalist lady has huge Evanescence/Amy Lee’s influence on her singing. You guys know me, I don’t mind these things so much as long as the music is good. In this case, I can say that I am 50/50. I liked the song. But I didn’t like the vocal mix at all. In this kind of situation, I would strongly recommend the band to work on a different mix than Evanescence, at least on the vocal mix. I really don’t understand why people with experience (their producer) don’t guide bands in the right direction. For instance, when I look at Kuudelta, I see that they have some authentic characteristics in their music. Just like I have mentioned above, they have a sitar player, soundtrack-ish partitions, super dark and mysterious vibe in general, and progressive elements. These are the pillars of their empire, which should be highlighted. Then, their vocalist has a clean pure voice, which is good. There have been so many examples like these. Clean melodic singing female vocals with metal music. So in this case, I’d recommend to work on it a little bit on the mix and try to provide the band a new path, a new approach for their vocal sound.
Technically, My Safe Place has good standards in every way. Everything sounds super atmospheric, clean, clear, natural, very well balanced and mixed. The overall sound has a beautiful harmony indeed. The producer has done a great job in all these aspects. Hands down. What I was talking about earlier was my personal opinion. They might take it or not. Or even this very vocal mix idea could have been Kuudelta’s own decision. I respect that as well. I know myself how challenging all these decisions can be for an up and coming band. They have already earned our utmost respect for beginning their careers not with releasing a single, but a monstrous full-length album. This means they do this for their love of music, for respect and nothing else, which is admirable indeed.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am super positive about Kuudelta. They have done a remarkable job by releasing a full-length album with 12 songs already. In their shoes, I’d say that this is already a big achievement. Not every band can do such a start. On the other hand, they are showing potential with some characteristic things about their music. I am sure with the right guidance, they will realize their strengths and weaknesses, work on them, and take another step forward to the Ultimate Kuudelta style in the future.
And one last thing, they have released their stuff with the band name; KuuΔelta, not Kuudelta. My dear friends, I am not sure if you are aware of what you are doing. I wasn’t able to find your music on Spotify. There is no such letter on my keyboard and my phone. People are dying to get a better rank on Google’s search results. I understand you have something special going on but I’d strongly recommend you to continue with a Latin “D” letter. This is just a small tip from a friend who values your great efforts, music and your future careers!
