The Even Order – The World Outside Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising progressive metal band; The Even Order, from the USA. We have reviewed their powerful piece; The World Outside, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
The Even Order is a promising progressive metal band (or one-man-band, but I’d like to call them a band anyways) I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with their impressive song; The World Outside, off from their debut release; The Awakening, which was released in 2019. If you are into ’90s thrash/heavy/progressive metal, listened to every epic metal album since then and now looking for something fresh like me? Then this is what you are looking for! Please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
The World Outside is a perfect summary of what I like the most about metal music. The creative mind, atmosphere, structure, energy flow, dynamics, loudness, instrumentals, and so on. It has the delightful progression of Mastodon, leads like Blind Guardian and Iced Earth, and the irresistible thrash metal vibes from the ’90s Metallica. The band obviously has come up with a powerful music style here by blending their influences under one roof, which is admirable. There’s nothing less or excessive in their music, on the contrary, everything has a wonderful balance.
The song is structured with two main pieces. The first part will take you an adventure into a mysterious place of clean-ish progressive arpeggios. Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful groove, toning, vocal lines, and instrumentation. This part immediately reminded me of Mastodon’s arpeggios they used to do until a few albums back. Then the song flawlessly evolves into the second section where the listener will be fully satisfied with the band’s understanding of ’90s badass thrash metal vibes. Simply beautiful.
Technically, The World Outside has great standards in every way. There’s a reason I didn’t want to say “top-class” here, because I can feel that this record wasn’t recorded and produced in a professional studio. However, I don’t want anybody to get me wrong here, they have done a wonderful job from the bottom to the top. Hands down. I can totally understand the situation and I have huge respect for it. I just love listening to good music my friends, this is my only criteria. I don’t mind the technical side of it as long as it gives me the right feeling. Once again, The Even Order has done a remarkable job by recording a badass debut album with 8 tracks and making a solid first step into their careers. They haven’t tried to be popular by releasing 8 singles instead, or making songs shorter to become more commercial, which is admirable.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am very impressed by The Even Order, their way of understanding music, taste, songwriting ideas, creativity, and their debut album. I just want to say that The Awakening might not be the kick the band is looking for, however, it will be a solid step forward which will make them/him proud all their lives.
