Townsend is held “Prisoner” due to his killer new track!

Nashville artist Townsend drops some real topics on us with his new track “Prisoner.” The song is a vocalization of songwriter John Townsend’s anxiety and entrapment inside his own head.

Despite it being on the less-heavy side of what I would post about, the track carries a lot of weight in content. Primarily acoustic guitar focused, with incorporated elements of electronic and rock music, the song has a nice mix of feeling. The combination of acoustic and distorted electric guitar is a difficult balance to achieve smoothly, and this song does it! The drums are also a nice touch moving from a less to more involved progression from the slower to higher intensity sections. The song really picks up on the latter half with some nice electric guitar tone.

Give a listen to Townsend’s new track and feel the acoustic and electric blend!

Inhale Me show us what’s wrong and right with “Renegade”

Hungarian metal band Inhale Me bring us on a journey with their new track “Renegade”.

The track is an amazing culmination of hardcore style jamming, song enveloping vocals, and punchy rhythm sections. Starting strong with a pummeling of distortion and sound, the song then lifts into a well thought out chorus that floats in the mix. Inhale Me doesn’t stop there, with a breakdown contrasting between soft vocals and electronic elements, to an unhinged drum and growling section in retaliation.

The band uses some effective spatial elements that will keep you hooked until the end!

Not only does it contain pertinent lyrical content to issues in today’s society, but the track is also full of twists and turns alternating between heavy guitar, calm verses, wide chorus sections, and a pounding drum-heavy breakdown. With a seemingly upbeat chorus, the song is contrasted with dark undertones with distorted guitars and grungy basslines.
