Scars of Solitude is a promising melancholic melodic metal band I discovered two months ago with their latest song If These Walls Could Talk, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Scars of Solitude has started their careers with a single called; Drown in 2017. Since then, the band released six more singles, Enemy (2017), Relapse (2019), Empty Canvas (2019), Drown (2020), Live to Regret (2020), and If These Walls Could Talk (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Scars of Solitude is an important name that I had the chance to listen to only a few months ago with their latest impressive song. My first impression of them was quite positive, as you also understand. First of all, the level of professionalism in their build/composition, the overall feeling, and the production value of the song were their stronger sides, which immediately made a big impact and caught my full attention.
If These Walls Could Talk is a successful piece of work with an irresistible dark, moody atmosphere, powerful dynamics, and the necessary amount of metal elements in general. Their fundamentals have reminded me of some other great Scandinavian metal bands such as Katatonia and Dark Tranquillity. These Finnish gentlemen have added their own flavor and already started evolving their own musical character. This song might not be the big step forward in the band’s career, and I can understand that. Yet, it musically and technically deserves appreciation and respect.
