radioairplay.com independent new music



Symphony Triteleia Laxa - Dancin' Round This Bonfire
Rock, Alternative
Pennsylvania, U.S.




Overall Impression: Symphony Triteleia Laxa serve up primal, hard-hitting alternative metal on their release of "Dancin' Round this Bonfire." Recorded over the course of several years by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Mark Dean, this track is a true labor of love that blends monster guitar riffs and mesmerizing tribal rhythms with the ingenuity and calculations of prog rock. A psychedelic middle section incorporates real audio of Dean's friends and family that plays overtop a heavy tom groove and chugging bass riff, setting up an angular, off-kilter guitar solo before heading into the final refrain. Rock enthusiasts of all sorts, particularly fans of prog-metal, will revel in the potent sound and unbridled spirit of "Dancing' Round this Bonfire" from Symphony Triteleia Laxa.


Strongest Point(s): Excellent production, outstanding mix. Nice intro, does a good job setting the stage. Fantastic main riff and groove, love the 7-beat mixed meter. Drums hit hard and sound incredible. Great bass tone. Nice instrumentation and variety of guitar tones. Great use of foley and real audio, the voices and whispers add an interesting texture as well as atmosphere. The middle section offers a wonderful diversion, breaks things up nicely. Great little background vocal hook through there that ties it all together melodically. Guitar solo sounds awesome coming out of it. Terrific vocal performance, great rock style and delivery. Lyrics are heady and cohesive, sticking to the primal feel and bonfire theme. All in all this is an incredibly impressive endeavor, especially considering the time and effort spent. Its a great sounding track that certainly captures and conveys a holistic sense of community and a shared collective consciousness. Stellar work, from top to bottom!


Target Audience Appeal: Fans of Pop/Rock, Alternative Pop/Rock, Alternative/Indie Rock, Alternative Metal, Progressive Metal, Neo-Prog


Artist target suggestions: Primus, Jane's Addiction, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Porno for Pyros, Alice In Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pantera, Living Colour, Tool, Audioslave, Tin Machine, Coheed and Cambria, Mr. Bungle

SONG REVIEW 🎵📝 Zacheous Jackson - Separate Ways



radioairplay.com independent new music



Zacheous Jackson - Separate Ways
Reggae
United Kingdom




Overall Impression: I've had the great pleasure of reviewing a few songs now of talented writer/performer Zacheous Jackson, and what I've found is that each one, whilst being proudly rooted in its Reggae roots, still manages to bring something new to the table. Whether this be the general tone of the track, the way the music flows, or its general sense of feeling, each one feels distinct in character, and thankfully this fantastic cover of the Gary Moore classic "Separate Ways" follows suit. In this new captivating reggae cover of Gary Moore's classic ballad "Separate Ways," listeners are treated to a heartfelt reinterpretation that pays homage to the original while boldly carving out its own creative identity. With its smooth rhythms, soulful vocals, and Zacheous' endearing vocal style, this rendition breathes new life into the beloved rock anthem, infusing it with a sense of warmth and authenticity that is uniquely reggae.


Strongest Point(s): From the moment the first chord is struck, it's clear that this rendition of "Separate Ways" is something special. The familiar melody of the original is seamlessly woven into the reggae framework, creating a seamless fusion of genres that feels both natural and inspired. The rhythmic pulse of the reggae groove adds a new dimension to the song, infusing it with a sense of spirituality that is impossible to ignore. Of course, at the heart of this rendition are the soulful vocals, which gracefully glide over the pulsating rhythm section. Zacheous' delicate delivery captures the longing and heartache of the lyrics perfectly, infusing each word with a palpable sense of emotion and depth. With every heartfelt phrase, Zacheous breathes new life into the song, drawing listeners in with his raw vulnerability and authenticity. Yet, what truly sets this cover apart is how it respectfully pays homage to Gary Moore's original while forging its own distinct creative path. Rather than simply replicating the original arrangement, this rendition takes bold creative liberties, infusing the song with a fresh perspective and a renewed sense of purpose. The reggae instrumentation adds a new layer of depth and personality to the song, highlighting its timeless melody and universal themes in a way that feels both familiar and innovative.


Target Audience Appeal: This is one for the Reggae enthusiasts for sure.

Artist target suggestions: Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Steel Pulse, Inner Circle, Bob Marley, Eddy Grant, Burning Spear, Black Uhura, Jacob Miller, Dennis Brown
