Today, we turn our attention to Rideau, a highly promising stoner rock band hailing from Stockholm, Sweden. In this review, we delve into their impressive piece, "Blood on Our Hands," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Rideau is a band that caught my attention approximately two months ago with their impressive song, "Blood on Our Hands," from their latest release bearing the same title, unveiled in 2019. Although the band has been releasing music since 2015, it is in recent times that they have truly distinguished themselves and started making waves in their career. After a single listen to "Blood on Our Hands," it became an instant decision for me to introduce them to the Metalhead Community readership. I urge you to experience it while reading the rest of this article.

First and foremost, Rideau exhibits great potential through their professionalism and experience. These qualities epitomize what it means to be a professional band. Upon careful examination of their latest releases, it becomes evident just how badass their music sounds. In addition to their impressive sound, Rideau's visual aesthetic, music videos, artwork, strategies, and overall activity are all well executed. It is clear that nothing can impede these Swedish gentlemen from achieving their dreams. Now, let's delve into the specifics of "Blood on Our Hands."

The dynamics and flow of this song initially blew me away. It is worth noting that Rideau enlisted the expertise of Sebastian Forslund (Night Flight Orchestra) and Jens Bogren (Sepultura, Amon Amarth, Opeth) for co-production, mixing, and mastering, respectively. Personally, I hold Jens Bogren's work in high regard, and the song's bulletproof sound quality and production attest to his skill. "Blood on Our Hands" stands out as one of the best-sounding pieces in this specific genre that I have encountered recently.

Musically, the song embodies everything a stoner rock fan could desire. It strikes a perfect balance between complexity and accessibility, with a magnificent atmosphere that immediately immerses the listener. While I hold high musical expectations for every song I encounter, "Blood on Our Hands" has truly satisfied me with its fresh ideas and overall dynamic execution. While this song alone may not propel the band to unprecedented heights, it undoubtedly represents a significant stride forward.

Technically, "Blood on Our Hands" is an exceptional piece of work in every aspect. The meticulous attention to detail is apparent, and the competition in the music industry has never been more intense. Rideau has managed to distinguish themselves from other bands within their genre by making a significant impact in all the areas I previously mentioned.

When I consider all these factors, my optimism for Rideau and their future careers grows exponentially. They have demonstrated immense potential through their accomplishments thus far, positioning themselves to ascend to the pinnacle of their specific music genre.
