Rantama – Dying Star Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising prog rock band; Rantama, from Finland. We have reviewed their game changer song; Dying Star, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Rantama is another promising ambient progressive rock music band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Dying Star, off from their latest single with the same title, which was released in 2019. This band has managed to show so many things about themselves with their only one song. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to hear something at this level from a new band. Hands down. Let me go into some details for you below.
When you look back at the beginning periods of the legendary bands and artists of our time, you’ll see that all of them have made a big difference with their character in their sound, attitude, understanding of music and styles. It is crystal clear for people who are listening to tons of new music such as me that there are so many bands out there making the same music with the same structure and mentality. When I listened to Dying Star for the first time, it was an instant approval for me. Whenever you come across a potential you immediately feel it. Rantama in this way surely is a very special band. They have not only written a song with creative ideas here, Dying Star is a 9 minutes long epic track where the band musically shows that they can easily make it to the top. In other words, it is one of the very few greatest progressive rock songs I have listened to lately. I am not exaggerating, I mean that.
Rantama’s music style carries influences from Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Jamiroquai, Porcupine Tree, Opeth and so on. They have a delicious blend of all these different styles and came up with their version of it. There’s absolutely nothing standard in the structure of Dying Star. The overall dynamics are amazing, the excitement never loses its freshness from the beginning until the end. Briefly, Dying Star takes the listener to a journey and switches off the real world for around 10 minutes.
Dying Star has exceptional sound quality and production as well. They have a very specific style and in my opinion, you need a very specific approach for this kind of music. I can easily say that I am fully satisfied with their sound quality and production. Hands down. Everything sounds super clean, clear, natural, very well handled, engineered, balanced, polished, mixed and mastered. In other words, they have a top-class level on their production as well as on their musicality.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say I am blown away by the potential of Rantama. If I had a record label, I’d sign them in a blink of an eye. Dying Star might not be enough to have a solid opinion about the band, I get that. But when you look at the level of creativity and authenticity here, you’d easily take the risk. Dying Star has earned its place in our Top Rock Songs Playlist on Spotify!
