Tar – Vacuum Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising melodic death metal band; TAR, from Sweden. We have reviewed their addictive song; VACUUM, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.


Tar is a promising melodic/progressive death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with their powerful song; Vacuum, off from their long-play debut album; As If We Were Never Here, which was released not long ago in 2020. This year is surely going absolutely insane for the metal world. As we all know the Swedish nation has always been a pioneer in metal music with their approach, cultural vibes, and their innovative thinking. Today, we have a brand new band here with us on the Metalhead Community who are showing enough potential to make death metal great again. Well, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Tar is a very talented band who has got many interesting things in their music worth checking out, especially for those who are into progressive metal, and music with the Scandinavian/European vibes just like me here. First of all, please take a look at how professionally they have handled everything that belongs to them. The artwork is looking fantastic, beautifully done branding, the character of their audio and visuals, sound quality, and everything else that gives life to TAR. Vacuum is a song where the band is showing advanced standards in everything; their understanding of music, musicality, instrumentation, musicianships, post-production, branding, and so on.

The song is mostly built with powerful metalcore/deathcore-like riffage. It keeps the tense feeling alive, makes the listener hungry for something melodic which comes right afterward. It is super trendy right now that every single metalcore/deathcore band writes music with a similar approach, powerful riffage on verses and melodic choruses. Well, I want you to know that Vacuum is nowhere close to that. The general structure of the song is not standard, yet never loses the excitement and the freshness. I’d call it intelligent songwriting. Some parts of the song have huge Meshuggah influence, especially with its guitar walk and vocals, whereas the melodic side of their music reminded me of Opeth. Yet, nothing feels like too much. They surely have the right balance and the right direction, foundations in their music.


Technically, Vacuum has exceptional standards as well. Everything sounds super clean, clear, natural, atmospheric, very well handled, recorded, engineered, balanced and in great harmony. I loved the color of their overall sound. It is super dark and moody, which is more than satisfying to me. Briefly, they have done a very promising job here on this album along with their producer.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am impressed by TAR. Vacuum is a great song off from their impressive debut to their professional careers. I am not sure if these Swedish gentlemen were making music professionally before, but Tar is definitely a solid project which can restore hope in the metal world!

VACUUM has earned its place in our TOP METAL SONGS PLAYLIST on Spotify, and STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for those who love progressive death metal!
