Velcrocranes – Hold Your Breath Song Review – Metalhead Community

Today we are featuring an upcoming progressive rock band; Velcrocranes, from Moscow, Russia. We have reviewed their phenomenal song; Hold Your Breath, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Velcrocranes is another promising progressive rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this very song; Hold Your Breath, off from their debut single; Afterlife, which was released in 2018. Velcrocranes undoubtedly is one of the most important names from Russia who musically has internationally advanced standards that needs to be followed not only by rock and metal music lovers but by everyone who understands good music. I am a person who has knowledge and experience in post-soviet countries and their culture. And have always been a fan of their potentials to be honest. Velcrocranes in this way seems quite authentic and unique to me with their understanding of music, musicianship levels, songwriting skills, ideas, decisions and of course, their vision. Hold your breath is powerful enough to see everything that you’d want to see from a respected band, in my humble opinion.

The song has a wonderful energy that flows perfectly until the end. It sounds so international that nobody can tell these gentlemen are from Russia. As I have also mentioned in some of my previous articles that, there’s a tense competition in the music industry out there and those who are serious about their careers should have to offer something that they can make a difference with, such as on this example. Velcrocranes has so many great things in their music where they make a big difference for themselves, even with their debut. This is not something we see happening every day, to be honest. In this way, I can say that I am well impressed. Simply remarkable.

Technically, Hold Your Breath also has top class standards. Everything sounds super clean, clear, natural, atmospheric, engineered, mixed and produced brilliantly. There’s an irresistible harmony in the sound that immediately pulls the listener into its dark, mysterious world. In this way, I’d like to congratulate every single soul that has taken part in this project. They have done a fantastic job with no doubt.

Unlike many other progressive bands and artists out there, Velcrocranes’ music isn’t based on only one instrument. They have rich instrumentation in general where you can see almost every instrument is stepping up in the composition time to time just like a jam. The vocalist has his own way of doing things (reminded me of Alice in Chains a little bit) who contributes a lot to their authenticity in general. I also liked their influences from many different genres such as rock, metal, jazz and their blues. So when I take all these into account, I’d like to say that Velcrocranes is definitely one of the most impressive bands I have come across lately. Afterlife is a very serious step ahead that will make our tovarishi proud all their lives.

Hold Your Breath has earned its place in Metalhead Community’s Top Rock Songs Playlist on Spotify! STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO PROGRESSIVE MUSIC FANS!
