Do You See the Dark: Victory is in the ...

Heavy Rock
4.0/5.0

Heavy. That basically sums up the Brooklyn power trio Do You See the Dark and their first EP Victory Is In The Struggle. But it's not all that simple. Within the dense intensity of their mammoth riffage, DYStD adds progressive rock nuances. If you can hear the past that crushing wall of riffage on Shed Your Thorns and When It All Falls Apart, you'll finding shifting movements, twisting bass and drum work, and lilting, sometimes, raw female vocals. Then on the shorter Secret and especially Sunshine, DYStD offers a more accessible pattern of melodic heavy rock. The EP closes with Do You See the Dark pursuing their strengths on Dranken: dark, heavy, and complex rock. It rumbles and rocks, sounding like some strange brew of heavy, stoner, and psychedelic rock. Next to Sunshine, it was my favorite song on Victory Is In The Struggle.

If you would normally pass on heavier rock, or think it's all riffige for stoner, then you need to check out innovation within You See the Dark's heavy music. Recommended!
