Today, we delve into the world of Kuudelta, a promising progressive/doom/alternative metal band hailing from Kouvola, Finland. Join us as we explore their captivating song, "My Safe Place," from their full-length debut album, "Beautiful Illusion." In this review, we'll delve into the character, style, story, and potential of Kuudelta's music.

Kuudelta caught my attention about a month ago with their song "My Safe Place." Their music stands out due to its dark vibes, moody atmosphere, and infusion of melodic elements and soundtrack-esque partitions. From the moment I first listened to the track, I fell in love with the mysterious ambiance it creates. Impressed by their unique sound, I knew I had to bring Kuudelta to the attention of Metalhead Community Magazine readers. I invite you to listen to "My Safe Place" as you continue reading this article.

"My Safe Place" serves as an excellent representation of Kuudelta's music style throughout the album. As someone who values potential in up-and-coming bands, I find Kuudelta's authenticity truly commendable. Upon first hearing the song, its introduction immediately reminded me of the iconic horror thriller video game series, Resident Evil. This atmospheric quality sets Kuudelta apart. Consider it—a band that creates recognizable and mysterious vibes. In fact, I can only think of one other band with a similar essence: Opeth, who also hails from the Scandinavian region.

Moreover, the vocalist showcases a significant influence from Evanescence's Amy Lee. While personal taste may vary, I appreciate the song overall. However, I must admit that the vocal mix doesn't resonate with me. In such situations, I strongly recommend the band to explore alternative vocal mixing approaches, specifically to differentiate themselves from Evanescence. I often question why experienced individuals, such as their producer, don't guide bands toward a distinct direction. In the case of Kuudelta, their authentic characteristics—such as the inclusion of a sitar player, soundtrack-like partitions, and their dark and mysterious vibe—should be accentuated. Additionally, the vocalist possesses a clean, pure voice, which is a valuable asset. Many examples exist of successful female vocalists combining clean melodic singing with metal music. Hence, I suggest working on the mix and aiming for a fresh vocal sound that distinguishes Kuudelta.

Technically, "My Safe Place" maintains high standards. The production quality is atmospheric, clean, clear, and well-balanced. The harmony throughout the song is beautifully crafted. The producer deserves recognition for their outstanding work in these areas. It is essential to note that my previous comments on the vocal mix are subjective and do not reflect any technical shortcomings. Perhaps the vocal mix was a conscious decision by Kuudelta. I respect their creative choices, particularly considering the challenges that come with starting a musical career. Kuudelta already commands great respect for embarking on their journey with a full-length album—a significant accomplishment in itself.

Taking all these factors into account, I remain highly positive about Kuudelta. Their full-length album release, consisting of 12 songs, is a remarkable achievement. I firmly believe they possess the potential to discover their strengths and weaknesses, refine their craft, and evolve toward their unique sound—what I like to call the Ultimate Kuudelta style.

Lastly, I want to address the band's name. It appears as "KuuΔelta" rather than "Kuudelta." While I understand the intention behind this choice, it poses difficulties when searching for their music, especially on platforms like Spotify. As musicians, I understand the desire to improve search rankings. Therefore, I recommend continuing with the Latin letter "D" to enhance accessibility for fans and listeners. This advice stems from my appreciation of their remarkable efforts, music, and future careers.

In conclusion, the Metalhead Community Team extends warm congratulations to Kuudelta for their successful piece of work, "My Safe Place." We wish them continued success and fulfillment in their musical journey. Thank you for reading.
