Today, we have the pleasure of featuring PSDSP (Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project), a promising avant-grunge/jazz-rock/progressive grunge rock band hailing from Fairfax, California, USA. In this review, I will delve into their convincing new song, "Ice Age," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

PSDSP came to my attention two weeks ago through Submithub submissions, and their irresistible song, "Ice Age," released as a single on August 28th, 2020, left a lasting impression. Since their official debut in 2018 with the EP "Orders," the band has continued to make waves, releasing two more singles, "Toilet Seat Headdress" (2020) and "Ice Age" (2020). As you read on, I invite you to listen to the song, immersing yourself in its captivating soundscape.

"Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project," or PSDSP, is undeniably one of the most impressive underground bands I have encountered in recent times. While the genre they refer to as "avant-grunge" may be unfamiliar to many, it is clear that these American musicians possess immense potential. Their understanding of music, intelligent songwriting skills, instrumental prowess, and extensive musical knowledge set them apart. However, what truly distinguishes them is their ability to think outside the box—a quality I greatly admire in genuine artists. PSDSP goes beyond merely creating good music; they operate on a whole different level.

"Ice Age" is a phenomenal 7-minute track with a captivating composition. The live performing vibes emanating from their music are truly enchanting, painting a vivid picture of the band playing right before your eyes. The song, as a whole, defies convention. Its composition strikes a perfect balance between simplicity and complexity, taking the listener on an energetic and atmospheric journey. Each sentence in this composition is bound to captivate and leave an indelible mark.

The vocalist adeptly navigates between calm and atmospheric segments, gradually building excitement as the song progresses. He demonstrates skill in delivering both clean and dirty vocals. The overall vibe of the song remains predominantly positive, steering clear of dark or minor melodies. The seamless flow of energy is so beautifully executed that the 7-minute duration feels like a fleeting moment.

From a technical standpoint, "Ice Age" meets excellent standards. The sound is clean, clear, and natural, a testament to meticulous recording, engineering, mixing, and mastering. The live performing vibe, as previously mentioned, adds a significant dimension to this remarkable example. Musically, PSDSP amalgamates the essence of Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, and a grandiose incarnation of Opeth.

Considering all these factors, I am thoroughly impressed by PSDSP. They truly are the titans of their genre, leaving no room for doubt. "Ice Age" marks a substantial step forward in their musical journey, an accomplishment that will undoubtedly make them and their families proud.
