Demo 2008

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

Every once in a while a band comes around that is unique and involves many elements but also at times fails to seem like it is completely original. I would say the genre of this band is more like Melodic Death/Symphonic/Power/Thrash/Progressive Metal. Now with the combination of all those it could either make for a very interesting mix, or a somewhat over the top mix. I would say the first one. The band does make for an interesting combination of styles.

The demo comes across as a very well recorded piece of art, everything is played tight and is pretty catchy. I do have one major problem though. The singing voice, oh my God that voice is annoying. The music does seem like it is somewhat radio friendly, and I could see this band being played on local airwaves. But even with the accessibility the music is still very good.

I really cannot think of to much to say about Grim Drowsiness, other than the music is good and it is a combination of all the styles I mentioned before. The music is memorable, catchy, the singing voice is annoying, and accessible. I will be on the lookout for further releases from this band, the fusion of styles is surely interesting and they combine it well enough to grab the attention of a fan of any of those specific genres.
