Lýsis - Autophobia - Song Review - Modern Melodic Metal from Falun, Sweden

Today, we have the pleasure of featuring Lýsis, a promising modern melodic metal band from Falun, Sweden. In this review, we will delve into their captivating new song, "Autophobia," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Lýsis is a band I discovered approximately two years ago, and now they are back with their latest single, "Autophobia," scheduled for release on January 29, 2021. If you haven't come across the band before, their musical journey began with the single "Scars" in 2019, followed by the EP "All in Your Hands" (2019) and the single "Different Shades of Pain" (2020). I encourage you to listen to the song as you read on.

It is truly inspiring to witness young bands that I discovered years ago returning with renewed strength and new music, particularly during these challenging times. As I have expressed in previous articles, their unwavering love for music and relentless efforts deserve our utmost respect and support. If they were our relatives, we would undoubtedly feel proud of them. People like them contribute to making our world a better place.

Lýsis is one of those indie bands that have actively released music for only three years, and it is impressive to observe their development within such a short span of time. They are still in the early stages of their musical journey, as evident from their band pictures. However, I firmly believe there are only two types of bands in this world: those we have heard of and those we can never forget. Although I struggle to recall the name of their first song that caught my attention two years ago, I had a positive impression of their music and future. This time, with their upcoming song "Autophobia," Lýsis has exceeded all expectations and etched their band name firmly in my memory.

"Autophobia" is an incredibly impressive song with world-class production, making it one of the most captivating releases I have come across in recent times. Without a doubt, this song stands out. Firstly, it possesses a dark and moody atmosphere that immediately engulfs the listener. While this might seem like a minor detail at first, it is one of the distinguishing factors that separate great songs from merely good ones. The dynamics of the song are magnificent, and the level of excitement never wavers. I particularly appreciate the essential freshness that resonates in every section, even though the approach may not be overly progressive or melodically intricate. The melodies are predominantly beautiful, complemented by the vocalist's alluring and addictive lines. The vocal mixing is masterfully executed, making it impossible to resist. After just one listen, "Autophobia" lingers in your memory. At times, the vocalist's voice reminds me of Amy Lee from Evanescence, and I consider that a delightful quality.

Furthermore, the overall approach employed in the creation of the song leans towards modern sensibilities, reminiscent of Slipknot and other Metalcore/Deathcore styles. However, I must admit that metalcore is not my preferred music style at the moment due to its prevalence and the repetitive elements found in the majority of bands. Briefly put, many bands tend to replicate one another. However, Lýsis has managed to break away from the mold and distinguish themselves through "Autophobia," delivering something truly special.

From a technical standpoint, "Autophobia" meets top-class standards in every aspect. It boasts a clear, flawlessly recorded, engineered, mixed, mastered, and harmonious sound. I am not exaggerating when I say that "Autophobia" is one of the best-sounding songs in its genre, maintaining its specific ambiance throughout. It is genuinely impressive. Despite the song's compositional ups and downs, it retains its freshness, excitement, and emotional intensity.

Taking all these factors into consideration, I am astonished by Lýsis' remarkable growth over time. "Autophobia" is the kind of work that will bring eternal pride to this Scandinavian band and their families. Their next steps should involve continuing to work hard, maintaining their standards, and writing more music. I am confident that time will take care of the rest for this band!
