On Deaf Ears – Salem
Release Date: 4th August 2023
The intro to ‘Salem’, from Canadian metal outfit On Deaf Ears does not give much away when it comes to the surprise the opening vocals are on the track. A soft-beautiful soundscape opens up, drums and guitars layer over the top before deep, nu-metal esque vocals land.
From there the track ebbs and flows in just about every direction you could want a song to. Several different styles of vocals are used, cleans, screams and growls go on for days. Musically there’s power, there’s beauty, there’s electronic influences. What more could you want?
