Mindful – Derealization Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising metalcore band; MINDFUL, from the USA. We have reviewed their magical song; Derealization, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Mindful is a promising melodic math-rock/metalcore band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their captivating debut release; Derealization, which was released as a single in 2019. The band is officially making releases since 2019. They have started their careers with this single, and continued with another single called; Weather, in the same year. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that I am not listening to any metalcore and deathcore music at all. However, I really think that these American gentlemen have some interesting to offer especially on this song, and immediately decided to feature them here on Metalhead Community. Please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Derealization is a special track, built with delicious atmospheric elements and ideas from the beginning to the end. Most of the time metalcore/deathcore bands are keeping everything heavy and simple on their song intros and verses, bringing in melodic vocals on choruses, and repeating this structure over and over again. Almost every single band I came across in this genre are doing the same thing and I really don’t understand why they are ok with using the same approach with everyone else at what they do. This is wrong! In our case, Mindful is showing originality in their composition, vocal lines, and instrumentation, which is admirable. Finally, someone has seen this picture and tried something different. I am glad to see that. The band is quite young as you can also understand from the vocalist’s voice, and this is their debut song. When you think of all the decisions they have made by keeping this information in mind, I’d say they have done a pretty badass job here without a doubt. The atmosphere is so beautiful and strong all along the way, the song immediately pulls the listener into its world. On the other hand, they immediately earned my admiration with their intelligent composing skills. Derealization doesn’t have a proper intro, verse, chorus, bridge, outro, or solo section if you listen to it carefully. This might not sound important to music listeners at all but believe me, this is the way you actually make a difference and separate yourself from other tons of metalcore bands out there just like on this example!
Technically, Derealization has great standards and there’s absolutely nothing negative to say about it at all. Everything sounds super clean, clear, super atmospheric/magical, addictive, easy-listening, very well handled, recorded, mixed, and mastered. It has this strong specific mood that stays with you for a while after listening to the full song, which is brilliant. And I’d like to congratulate every single person who has taken part in the making of this song!
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I have had a great time listening to Mindful. Derealization is a remarkable debut for the band where they are showing potential by not sounding like anyone else in their genre. I hope they are aware of their strengths, continue making music by getting closer to their ultimate music style in the future!
