Uthogst – Stormen Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising progressive death metal band; UTHOGST, from Norway. We have reviewed their monstrous song; STORMEN, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Uthogst is a promising melodic progressive death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with their phenomenal song; Stormen, off from their debut album; Skogul, which was released as a single in 2020. Honestly guys, Uthogst is definitely one of the best new coming metal bands of 2020 for me and I urge you to give it a listen while I dive into some freakin’ details about the song below!
As you might also know from some of my previous articles that I am listening to tons of new music every single day (my heaven and hell). I come across songs with great musicality, advanced musicianships, recordings, mixings, styles, and many other qualities. But believe me, you don’t hear this level of excitement happening in any song that often! For me, the credit goes both to the band and their producer. I still remember, I was blown away by the overall feeling of Stormen when I first listened to the first minute of the track and immediately decided to feature them here on Metalhead Community. Well, the band is showing huge potential with their understanding of music above everything else. I personally loved the way they approach to making music, especially in this very song. The instrumentation is phenomenal, nothing is easy, nothing is boring, too much or less. These Norwegian gentlemen are not only showing their advanced musicianships with their tight instrumentation here but also with the meaningful decisions they have taken while building the structure. As I said earlier, the structure is not standard and the listener never feels bored to the end. Briefly, there are tons of greatness here on this one song, yet what blew my mind was the overall excitement of the song, which was something like watching Chernobyl (the tv series) from the beginning until the end!
Technically, Stormen has top-class standards in every way as well. They have done a phenomenal job here! When I listen to the song carefully, I can say that this is like the melodic, richer, and more progressive version of Meshuggah, yet you never feel like they have copied anything from anyone or following someone’s path while building/writing their songs. Many successful creative ideas make the song even richer. On the other hand, I’d like to congratulate their producer who has done a phenomenal job and taken everything into the next level. He understood the band, their potential, desires, and overall style. The outcome is so fuckin’ satisfying. I’d like to congratulate the band, their families and friends who have supported them, the producer, studio manager, sound engineer, studio assistant, coffee maker, pizza delivery guy, and every single person who has taken part in the making of this exceptional work!
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I have had a great time listening to Uthogst. I am super positive about their future. Hopefully, they will continue making releases by keeping their ultimate Uthogst characteristics in mind that I have mentioned above. They have the potential to become an invincible band in the future. And no one can take away success from them!
Stormen is in my BEST SOUNDING METAL SONGS OF 2020 LIST, earned its place in our TOP METAL SONGS PLAYLIST on Spotify, and STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO EVERY PROGRESSIVE/DEATH METAL MUSIC FAN!
