Takatak – Volition Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising progressive metal band, TAKATAK, from Pakistan. We have reviewed their game-changer song, VOLITION, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Takatak is a promising progressive metal band I discovered two months ago through Submithub submissions with this amazing song, Volition, released as a single in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Takatak was formed in 2010, in the city of Lahore – the second largest city in Pakistan and officially making releases since 2019. The band has started their careers with an EP called; Out of Something (2019), and released five more singles, Fault Lines (2020), The Whale (2020), Voyager (2020), Volition (2020), and Phantom (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Takatak is an exceptional band, who has the foundations to evolve and become one of the best bands worldwide in their specific genre. First of all, I would like to say that I am delighted to see such a sensational metal band from Pakistan loaded up, making incredible music. I remember watching the lyric video of Volition for the first time, and I immediately made up my mind after hearing the first minute.

As you might remember from some of my previous articles, I am a huge fan of everything connected with progressive metal. In this matter, Takatak is a modern version of what I love about it for sure. First of all, I’d like to say that Takatak’s music might not sound authentic when you think about the elements of their music separately. However, the combination of them is where the greatness of Takatak is hidden. They have taken the best sides of Linkin Park, Animals as Leaders, Dream Theater, Killswitch Engage, etc… bands and created their character out of it, which I can see already made a massive impact. In my book, Volition is an epic piece of work. Period. A seven minutes long instrumentational journey where two different vocal types constantly battle with each other and move along the dynamics until the end.

Furthermore, Volition has a top-class sound quality and production, which played a gigantic role in this irresistible outcome. This is a very serious work where the band is showing potential with their instrumentation, decisions, creativity, and composing skills. Believe me; not everybody can write such meaningful compositions with this level of complexity. And seeing all these things by a new band from Pakistan has made me very, very happy. Cause their young generation has got a band, an internationally respected hero that they can follow now.


Technically, Volition has top-class standards just like its musicality. Everything sounds super clean, clear, atmospheric, impressive, deep, well-engineered, balanced, mixed, mastered, and in great harmony. This is one of the best sounding progressive songs I have listened to lately. And I am sure it was a challenging task. I mean, just listen to these vocals, I don’t know how many layered vocal lines each vocalist has. But in the end, the result is more than satisfying.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am simply blown away by TAKATAK. Volition surely is one of the very few the MOST PROMISING progressive metal songs we discovered so far. Honestly, I don’t know what else to say. These gentlemen have everything they need to go until the end, become the greatest out of their geography and make this world a better place. In my book, the world would be happy to hear their name and discover their music, so it is all up to them.
