BEYOND NEVER - ONE THOUSAND YEARS (SINGLE)

SELF-RELEASED

JUNE 2014

 

 

The dark vision of Faye Tality – the band ‘Beyond Never’ who have been seeping into the minds of Perth’s Metal masses for some time now has finally gone and done it and put out a single and based on what we have here it’s about time too.  

 

‘One Thousand Years’ is a drifting, brooding metallic ballad full of restrained power and dark visions with an almost Sisters of Mercy meets Queensryche feel to it at some points. There’s a haunting backing vocal, set below Clayton’s demonic croon, sweeping guitars that grind against a dark heart. It’s a powerful statement to lay down to start a journey and one that certainly captures the attention.

 

Starting with a scream sister track ‘Insignific*nt’ starts out at a  similar pace – doom-laden and watchful, it marries a female and male vocal that start before the male explodes into a dark rock crescendo. It’s a song whose dark heart is sustained by a subdued guitar and a power that waits in the dark corners, cloathed in shadows.

 

If you love you Progressive metal to have that darkness and edge, like us you’ll want to hear so much more. The sad thing of course is that with the single we only have the two songs to heighten the anticipation for the eventual bloody feast…
