Union Five has a groove-centric sound

Rhythm is as important as melody throughout the amalgamation of tracks on the self-titled album by Union Five. This is evidenced by the alternating emphasis on one aspect or the other – and often the fusion of the two elements, which enlivens the musicians as they play. In turn, this spontaneity commands attention because surprises abound within each track. At a given juncture the band may slow the growing momentum of the music, giving itself and the listener time to ponder what has preceded, in preparation for what is to follow. But this moment is often fleeting, as temperate paces

Marcel Heah: “Travelogue” – beautiful and deceptively simple elements

More like personal sketches for piano than traditional, structured songs, the music of Melbourne-based Australian artist Marcel Heah plays like a poetic soundtrack to the world’s tangible and intangible elements, and nowhere is this more brilliantly enacted than on his album, “Travelogue”.

Back To Eden: “Twin Flame” – they sound like modern-day genre forerunners

In collaboration with vocalist Aliz Kasim, plus special guest musicians from all over the world Back To Eden is the heavy metal project of guitarist, bassist and songwriter Edan Hoy from Melbourne, Australia. Joining Back to Eden on their latest single “Twin Flame”, is special guest guitar virtuoso Dhalif Ali. This is the third and final single taken from their upcoming Debut EP. Expected release date of the EP will be early 2018. The track is the potential this project has always shown, fully unleashed: it’s a heavy metal blueprint taken from the late seventies and early eighties and brought into the 21st century.

Through the course of “Twin Flame”, it can be duly noted that every musician, playing or singing on this recording, is on top form. Treating the listener to a thoroughly headbangable set of riffs as well as a meticulously superb guitar solo, the bass is highly audible in the mix and hugs the guitars well to provide a thick low end, occasionally branching out with small yet noticeable sections of its own.

Vocalist Aliz Kasim proves to be another very strong element, with his verse and chorus melodies being some of the strongest and catchiest currently at hand in the genre. He has a tremendous vocal range that can reach the highest of highs.

Many bands have tried to accomplish this kind of sound and style, in the modern day hard rock and metal scenario, but few have succeeded. A larger part of what makes this music what it is, is not simply the chunky riffs, rumbling bass lines or pounding drums, but the attitude, and at times restraint, that holds the authentic classic metal sound together.

So many bands try to take it to excess, with everything designed to be in-your-face, and shock your senses. Most of these bands could stand to improve by taking out a few of the riffs, reducing the ridiculous amount of soloing and try to break out of the excessively corny rhythmic changes. And if they still don’t understand it, maybe a listen to Back To Eden’s latest single could be helpful.

The riffs here on “Twin Flame” are able to shift tempo without it seeming like the music is inherently losing its intensity or form, and the solos are painfully sharp, again, not sacrificing their edge to seem overly technical.

It seems ridiculous to praise even the tone, but it pulls that vibe of the record forwards from a simplistic one to a more advanced, complex sound. Being hit by this and the powerful bass and drums, creates the guarantee that even the most aggrieved of metal listeners will find something to enjoy on this song.

With a steady crescendo and a clear presence of lusciously layered guitars, and neat little lead lines sitting over the top of chugged rhythms, and a thudding bass in the background, this song epitomizes everything that is good about classic metal.

Back To Eden don’t throw you any curveballs, and they really don’t have to. Let’s be honest, melodic or classic metal aren’t genres that’s actually thriving as a whole nowadays, but these guys nail all the parameters of the style well enough, to sound like modern-day genre forerunners.

A well-deserved pat on the back for Edan Hoy and Back To Eden is due it seems, as I can find no flaws here. Everything is more than solid…and just as I remembered it in the golden era of metal!
