Harakiri for the Sky 'Maere' Singles Review
Album: Maere - Singles Artist: Harakiri for the Sky Genre: #metal Sub-Genres: black metal, post metal Label: Art of Propaganda Non-Airable Tracks: Track 1 Description: Harakiri for the Sky is a cool band that I first listened to last year. They combine melodic guitar and emotional vocals with black metal and I think it is really great. It is hard to compare them to anyone, but the most apt comparison I can draw right now is Agalloch. These singles continue the musical style that I loved from their last album. The songs are very well written, the guitar and drums in particular are very impressive. Each riff and beat works and I really can't think of any part of a song that felt too long or out of place. The vocals are decent, they sound like the vocals on the last album; depending on your preferences you may not like them. The drums are quite fantastic, with exceptionally clean playing and very fast double bass and fills. The drums not only are very fast and cool, but the fills and beats are very tasteful and clearly planned out. That is a general thing in these singles, the songs are pretty much designed to be excellent and emotional.
I really liked these singles, but I think they did lapse into the generic just a bit. The songs sound pretty similar due to the style. I happen to be a huge fan of the style, so it doesn't bother me too much, but your mileage may vary. Overall, give these singles a try! I am really looking forward to the rest of the album when it drops. Sounds Like: Agalloch, black metal
