The Maunt - Blackout - Song Review - Electronic Post-Rock from Kyiv, Ukraine

Today, we have the pleasure of featuring The Maunt, an electronic post-rock band led by Alex Forst from Kyiv, Ukraine. In this review, I will delve into their exceptional song, "Blackout," exploring its character, style, story, and potential.

The Maunt is a promising industrial/modern post-rock band that I discovered two months ago through Submithub submissions. Their super dynamic song, "Blackout," is featured on their latest album, "False Restraints," released in 2019. Since their official debut in 2015 with the self-titled EP, they have steadily released music, including notable tracks like "Brand New World" (2016), "Brand New World (Acoustic)" (2017), "Zabuvayu (Acoustic)" (2017), and three EP albums - "Restart" (2016), "Escape" (2018), and "False Restraints" (2019). As you continue reading, I invite you to listen to the song, immersing yourself in its captivating essence.

In recent years, the world has become acquainted with the Ukrainian rock and metal scene, largely due to bands like Jinjer. They have represented their country admirably, spreading the right word and serving as a great example for the younger generation. As someone who listens to a vast array of music from around the world, I am well aware of the incredible talent emerging from Ukraine, particularly in the fields of art, IT, design, and music. The Maunt is undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking discoveries I have made in recent times.

"Blackout" is a super dynamic song that immediately transports the listener into its dark and exciting world. The music video accompanying the song further enhances the experience, leaving a lasting impression. From the very beginning, I was struck by the sheer professionalism displayed by The Maunt. Every aspect of their brand, from their official website to their content on YouTube and social media, is meticulously planned and executed. The attention and effort they pour into their work are evident, and I hold them in high regard for this dedication.

Moreover, the song itself is nothing short of breathtaking. Its beautiful flow captures the listener's attention, carrying them along effortlessly. I appreciated the song's structure and the band's ability to achieve perfect harmony. With undivided attention, every move in the music becomes palpable, resonating within one's body. While there are numerous positive aspects to highlight, the standout feature for me is the song's dynamics. As a fan of dynamic elements in art, "Blackout" perfectly aligns with my taste. When high energy levels combine with a seamless flow, it creates the potential for an extraordinary movie or video game soundtrack. As I was writing this review, I shared the video with my wife, who immediately recognized its soundtrack potential. She suggested it would be a perfect fit for a movie like "Mission: Impossible," while also mentioning its suitability for a film like "TRON."

Technically, "Blackout" upholds excellent standards. Although I am not a sound engineer, I can confidently say that the song's clarity, dynamics, atmosphere, engineering, mixing, and mastering are all finely crafted. If given the opportunity to make changes, I would leave every single aspect untouched, as the song's powerful character shines through. While some may disagree with me on this point, I believe that The Maunt's essence truly stands out in "Blackout," and that is what matters most to me in any music.

Considering all these factors, I am thoroughly impressed by The Maunt. They epitomize a professional music band in every sense, possessing character, solid foundations, an artistic eye, and the potential to become an internationally recognized band from Ukraine. "Blackout" is a phenomenal achievement, propelling these Ukrainian gentlemen to heights that will bring lifelong pride to them and their families.
