Ryan Melone is another promising progressive rock artist I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Diamonds, off from his single with the same title, which was released in 2019. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles here on Metalhead Community Magazine, there are tons of bands and artists out there making the same kind of music with the same kind of understanding. It is not only me, I know for sure so many people are tired of listening to “generic” music productions. I believe that people only with innovative thinking will be able to shape the future of music, especially in styles where you can see pure creativity such as rock, metal, jazz, classical, prog and so on. Ryan Melone in this way is making a big difference here with his fresh approach and understanding of music.
Diamonds is a promising song where the composer is showing great potential not only with his delicious blend of traditional blues rock elements and modern progressive elements, but also with his way of thinking. First of all, the overall energy in music is simply beautiful, which immediately pulls the listener into its world. When you think of the general vibe, it’s like the positive version of Pink Floyd’s music. When I take a closer look at its instrumentation and structure, I can say that the composer has done an amazing job here as well. Hands down. This is what I call intelligent songwriting. It might sound simple and standard to you at first but there are many creative decisions all along the way.
