Over Clouds Corruption – Follow the Light Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising metalcore band; Over Clouds Corruption, from Italy. We have reviewed their badass song; Follow the Light, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Over Clouds Corruption is another promising metalcore band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two weeks ago with this song; Follow the Light, off from their latest and also the debut album with the same title which released in 2019. Although Follow the Light album is Over Clouds Corruption’s debut release, they immediately make an impact with their sound quality and the standards in their music. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that we publishers, reviewers, and professionals who work in labels are mostly looking for the potential than the standards when it comes to up and comings bands. Over Clouds Corruption in this way has done a pretty impressive job by checking all boxes possible.
I am reviewing music for more than 3 years now and there’s one big serious issue with the bands/artists of our era; they (consciously or unconsciously) make the same music with the exact same mentality. And this is mostly followed by British rock and metalcore bands. Guys, come on, you can do better than that! Getting influenced by some other bands in the same genre is totally fine and acceptable, but don’t copy the exact structure of the song, the way they handled the vocals or their guitar sound. You gotta experiment, you gotta make something different so people will start recognizing your music with these differences. In my opinion, Over Clouds Corruption has so many things in common with the other bands with the same genre, and I started to have this feeling about them before hearing the chorus part. And they proved me wrong with the rest of the song as well (thank God!).
As you can also hear, they have very typical modern metalcore sound in general. They mostly used dirty vocals on most of the song which also one of the trendy things about this genre. However, I am glad that there are some small details where they made a difference here. First of all, they didn’t construct the song in a similar way that others usually do. Follow the Lights is one step further with its complexity and creativity. Also, I really liked the way they handled the vocals. Most of the time people use dirty vocals on the verse, and clean melodic vocals on the chorus and I am quite tired of seeing this happening. Believe me, whenever I hear this, I immediately stop listening to the song. Over Clouds Corruption wonderfully blended these two different styles together and served them deliciously. You never get bored with anything, in other words, you never feel like knowing what’s coming next. Good job.
As I mentioned earlier, Over Clouds Corruption has quite impressive technical standards. Everything sounds clean, clear, very well engineered, produced, mixed and mastered. I would like to congratulate these Italian gentlemen as well as their producer for their marvelous job as a new band. We usually don’t have these high expectations, but hearing this great sound is a big plus for the band, without a doubt. It gives us a hint about the band’s character, their approach to music and of course about their professionalism. There’s only one thing I can add to this, I’d recommend them to work on their sound a little bit more the next time. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, yet it is quite a usual sound. One of the most important things in music is to be recognized by your sound. So believe me, this might sound not that important to you at the moment but it makes a huge difference in the long run.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Over Clouds Corruption and their standards. Follow the Lights a brilliant debut where they show great potential and gave hope to all metalcore music fans!
