The Maunt – Blackout Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising industrial rock band, THE MAUNT, from Ukraine. We have reviewed their exceptional song, BLACKOUT, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

The Maunt is a promising industrial/modern rock band I discovered two months ago through Submithub submissions with their super dynamic song, Blackout, off from their latest album, False Restraints, released in 2019. The band is officially making releases since 2015. They have started their careers with an EP called; The Maunt (2015), released three more singles, Brand New World (2016), Brand New World (Acoustic) (2017), Zabuvayu (Acoustic) (2017), and three EP albums, Restart (2016), Escape (2018), and False Restraints (2019). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Over the last few years, the world heard about the Ukrainian rock/metal scene, mostly by Jinjer. They represented their country fantastically, still spreading the right word, and being a great example for their young generations. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I am listening to tons of new music from all around the world every day. I know there are so many great things happening here in Ukraine, especially in art, IT, design, and also in music spheres. And The Mount is undoubtedly one of those most breathtaking discoveries I made about two months ago.

Blackout is a super dynamic song that immediately pulls the listener into its dark and exciting world. The music came to me along with its video, and yes, it was a phenomenal experience. Hands down! Maybe after seeing the first quarter of the video, I already knew what I am going to do with this submission. First of all, I am super impressed by the professionalism of The Maunt. Every single detail is very well thought, planned, and realized. Almost no single thing belongs to The Maunt brand is sloppy or average. You can see it on their official website, other content on Youtube, social media pages and everything. This is really really cool, showing how much attention and effort they put into their work. Big respect!

On the other hand, the song is simply breathtaking. The flow is so beautiful; you don’t even realize how long it is. I loved the whole process in the video, the song’s structure, and their perfect harmony. You can feel every single move in your body while listening to it with your full attention. As I said earlier, there are so many positive things about the project, yet if I had to choose only one, I’d say its dynamics. I am a sucker for dynamic things in any art, and this was a perfect fit for my specific taste. Also, when the high energy level comes together with a beautiful flow such as in our case, it gives the song the potential to become a badass soundtrack for movies (or video games). While I was writing my review, I played the video to my wife. And she immediately mentioned its potential as a soundtrack. I told her it would be a badass soundtrack for a movie like; Mission: Impossible, yet she had a better idea. She said; I think this is the music of TRON.


Technically, Blackout has excellent standards as well. I am not an expert or a sound engineer, as you already know. But I can still say that this song has everything in one place with the right amount. Everything sounds clear, dynamic, atmospheric, well-engineered, mixed, mastered, and in great harmony. If I were the artist and had the chance to change something right now, I wouldn’t touch any single God damn thing because of its powerful character. Some might disagree with me on this, but I think the essence of The Maunt stands out here on this song, and that’s whats matters to me the most in any music.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by The Maunt. They are a great example of a professional music band with everything that belongs to them. They have the character, the right foundations, the artistic eye, and the potential to become another internationally known band out of Ukraine. Blackout is a phenomenal work, a big step forward in their lives that will make these Ukrainian gentlemen and their families proud all their lives.
