Black Note Graffiti – Such Is Art
Great power and fury pours out of Black Note Graffiti’s passionate “Such Is Art”. Riffs maintain a certain malice while they spiral down into the darkness. The tempos add to the overall heaviness of the piece while the song thrashes about with such intensity. By far the true heart of the song rests with the direct, highly articulate lyricism that drives everything forward with such strength. Commanding, the vocals rise above the pummeling instruments offering a small glimpse of salvation for it is the tender core of the song. Thoughtful to its very being, the way the song unfolds shows a creative, colorful attention to detail.
Things start immediately with a jagged guitar riff introducing the song. Vocals shout above immediately tapping into a threatening, tension-filled atmosphere. From there the way the guitars and drums unfurl feels masterful. Nicely balancing between restraint and full-on onslaught allow Black Note Graffiti to dive deep into the beauty of darkness. Building up with such elegance the luxurious choir adds to the almost mystical nature. About a third of the way into the piece they strip away the distortion and aggression. Quite tender the piece reveals their highly emotive vocals, showing a different side of the song. Towards the finish of the piece everything rushes forward with such determination, as the guitar riffs and percussion merge as one singular stream.
