Hedon – Annihilation

This particular song is one of those that is a bit out of my comfort zone, so it’s really fun to review. I don’t listen to a lot of thrashy, growly tracks so I always welcome the opportunity to listen to new songs when I can. I think this is a pretty awesome jam. The dirty vocals are really dark and evil sounding with some amazingly fast lyrical runs. There are also some areas with clean style vocals. Let’s talk about the musical composition for a minute. I love the way it has some swells and falls. I think it makes for a much more interesting piece of music. The guitar work is pretty furious with a lot of killer riffs. The drum work is top notch and keeps a heavy ass pace for the rest of the players to follow.

When it comes to exploring new styles of music it’s all too easy to end up hearing bad bands and thinking the genre sucks. Luckily for me doing these reviews I’m in a position where I can can’t take that stand. Hedon’s song is really well done. I like all the elements individually and as a whole. Honestly I would really like to hear more of their work. As to this particular song I would love to have a copy of it to play on the radio show.
