Aaaagh! Song of the week!

So, due to a variety of problems (such as me being sick), there were never any more short song reviews after the Swashbuckle song, even though I promised to do them every week. I apologize, and intend to make this a regular thing. Or as regular as possible. So then, onto the song.

Vesania - Rage of Reason:
So, for those of you that don't know Vesania is a symphonic black metal band, with some death metal thrown in here and there. They come from Poland, and their vocalist is Orion, the bassist of Behemoth, a Polish band that's very well known within the metal world. However, I'll avoid comparing this song to any of Behemoth's work. Now then, this song is rather good. It's got entertaining guitarworks, and good keyboard work. The keyboards really do complement the music well. They don't simply supplement the guitars, or drown them out either. They interact with them very well. Now, the vocals are what I really like about this song. Orion really has a unique style of black metal vocals, and the melodies he rasps, are very nice. The chorus is good raspy fun. There's one weird part in the song where you hear carnival music, but I guess that's to be expected considering what the artwork was for the album from which this song was; a creepy jester mask that would be right at home in some sort of bizarre evil-carnival.

So then, my overall decision is that this is a good song. Not amazing, but quite fun.

Grade: 8.2/10
