“Sink” is the volume-crankingly-indulgent latest single from Remember the Monsters. Some artist’s names give you plenty of expectation, but it’s safe to say I wasn’t wrong in their assumption that they wouldn’t disappoint. It’s not often that I get to hear tracks so melodic and synergistically powerful, with no compromise to either quality the track is as euphorically arrestive as Metalcore gets.
As you listen to Sink unfold, it seems more and more likely that the future of Metal and Hardcore rest in the deft hands and vocal cords of artists such as Remember the Monsters. Sink will leave you with the compulsion to hit replay until you can join in with the versing of the choruses, metal choruses really don’t get much bigger.
With the domineering guitars and acoustic drums sitting in a waspy bed of Electronic effect, the instrumentals create an incredibly caustic platform for Julian Comeau to lay down his vocals which will surely bring him plenty of fangirls. And I can probably count myself amongst them. But credit where credit is due, right?
So, if you’re looking for a way to significantly increase your heart rate at the same time as listening to an incredibly magnetic soundscape which is practically bursting with expressive energy, don’t hang around on checking out Sink. With over 5 million streams on their earlier single release “The Pieces Remain”, Remember the Monsters won’t be able to call themselves underground for much longer.
Sink is available to stream along with Remember the Monsters’ earlier single releases on Spotify.
