Undusted – Method to Madness Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising deathcore band; Undusted, from Latvia. We have reviewed their groundbreaking song; Method to Madness, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Undusted is another promising progressive/deathcore/death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Method to Madness, off from their latest EP release with the same title which was released in 2019. First of all, I know these Latvian gentlemen for some time and they really show exceptional potential with their music. Method to Madness EP just came out and it’s certainly one of the best sounding albums I listened to on this specific genre. Give it a listen while reading the rest of the review!
Method to Madness is a powerful song where the band is showing great potential with their ideas, decisions, creativity, experience and technical abilities. When I take a closer look at its build, there’s nothing standard with the structure at all. Time to time, it reminded me of bands that I have huge respect and enjoy listening to such as Meshuggah and Periphery. Undusted and these bands have a lot in common. Especially the singing style of the vocalist has huge Tomas Haake influence. Time to time I talk about the thin line between getting influenced and copying (I would prefer using this term but I couldn’t find a better word for now) in songwriting. In this example, I’d say they are on the edge. I personally don’t mind as long as the music is good. But there are some facts too. Having the same style with Meshuggah can be acceptable, but having the same kinda guitar mix, instrumentation, general sound, energy, vibe, structure and additionally, the exact same style of the vocalist, might be a little bit too much for some people out there.
As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I am a guy who is always looking at things from the bright side. I personally loved this track. It is powerful like a fist and sounds like a Warmachine. The structure is nowhere near simple nor standard. Also, the energy is amazing and flows perfectly until the end.
Additionally, Method to Madness also has top-class technical standards. Everything sounds clear, natural, very well handled, engineered, balanced, polished, mixed, mastered, and in great harmony. I loved everything they have done here. Hands down.
I am not certain if they have worked with a professional producer or handled the technical side of the job themselves, but in both ways the result is phenomenal. Well, if you’d ask me, I’d probably try to bring a little bit more Undusted character to their general sound. Like I mentioned above, carrying the work as further as possible from their influences would be the right thing to do. Not because of the band, their ideas, creativity, composition or work, but for their future careers. Nobody would like to be known as someone’s copy band. On the other hand, we music reviewers, bloggers, scouts, and labels are mostly looking for potential in any up and coming band. Undusted is showing a great potential here but they still need guidance in order to get to the point they deserve in the long term, in my opinion.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Undusted (once again!). Method to Madness is a monstrous sounding track which immediately earned its place in our TOP METAL SONGS PLAYLIST on Spotify!!
