Perth’s Metal Powerhouse Tempest Rising release their relentless new single “Awakening”.
The song introduces itself with a merciless punch and sets the scene for the visceral soundscape to follow. Featuring heavy dropped tuned and rhythmically sophisticated guitar work, complemented by methodically curated lead lines, this audible manifesto is underpinned by superbly tight drum and bass grooves.
The band never misses a beat throughout the entirety of “Awakening”; the guitars become more ferocious and the drums intensify even further as if you thought it wasn’t possible at this point. The words “This is a fucked up world” become tactic and anthemic in their repetition as the guitars harmonise with Vin’s melodies to create an atmospheric tension that closes the song, leaving everyone wanting more.
“Awakening” is a sophisticated and complex song reminiscent of great heavy metal bands such as Sevendust and Arch Enemy.
