Tommy Vext wasn’t a familiar name to me but a familiar figure that I knew from Bad Wolves, after discovering them years with their global success on The Cranberries Zombie coverThe Lone Wolf is Tommy’s new solo project and it is a pleasure sharing my honest opinion about his latest music.

Cancel the King is one of the good examples of what mainstream modern melodic metalcore looks and sounds like from the top of the music industry, followed by many young bands out there. Commercially well-polished sound design meets world-class production, focus, talent, vision, strategy, and experience, the artist proves himself to the world one more time as a successful metal music artist who knows how to run his business.

Moreover, Cancel the King stands out with all these qualities, leaving you with a familiar taste, blending the melodic side of Linkin Park with the heavy instrumentation of Killswitch EngageTommy Vext took this idea to the next with his voice, style, and characteristic vocal mix that we usually hear in electronic music. He is a talented singer and is already on his way to becoming a recognizable singer in the mainstream metal world.

The musical side of things has a respective amount of metal that can be a lesson for those who are interested in making a hit metal song. But most importantly, it gives you the impression that you won’t be hearing anything poor by Tommy Vext in the future.

Objectively, Cancel the King doesn’t have any weaknesses, yet I’d only listen to this specific genre if it played on the radio while driving somewhere. Other times, it is too mainstream for me.
