City of Souls - Single Review: Ferryman

15 Oct 2019 // A review by Axl Scott

The boys from City of Souls have smashed it out of the park again; this time releasing another stunningly epic track Ferryman; and just like their previous releases, Ferryman has its own impressive feel to it.

This is a track that you can quite easily get behind right from the very beginning with an instrumental intro that is both captivating and inspiring, while encouraging you to head bang and rock along. Instrumentally, this track is perfect, and it's as though it was made with Trajan’s distinctive voice in mind. The song speaks about trying to fix what can't be fixed and chasing the wrong things in life.

City of Souls have put together an amazing music video to accompany this flawless single. Filmed by the incredibly talented Francis Wheeler and Erin Greenhill, and edited by Trajan Schwencke and Steve Boag, the video showcases City of Souls at their finest on the live stage.

It’s hard to compare City of Souls to any another band, because their individual sound makes them stand apart from the rest.

The only fitting way to end this review is, shut up and take my money. I cannot wait for their debut album, Synaesthesia, and listening to Ferryman has made me all the more excited for it.

Ferryman is now available on all social platforms, and you can check out the official music video here!

About City of Souls

Hype,

It is a word that Auckland six piece City of Souls were bound to deal with from their inception. Boasting members from bands that have etched their mark on the local and international hard rock and metal scene such as Blindspott, Blacklistt, 8 Foot Sativa, New Way Home, Cold By Winter, In Dread Response and Solstate, City of Souls was set to stir some interest, and stir they have.

Too often when something is hyped it is followed with disappointment, yet the first City Of Souls single Sleep arrives unashamedly explosive, touting emotive energy juxtaposed with a certain calm which will become this band’s signature. Recorded between Dreadstorm Media Auckland and Roundhead Studios, it was mixed by legendary engineer Clint Murphy, and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York.

Wellington four-piece band Seismic State have just released their first EP State of Things, and if this is what they sound like, they have a big and bright future ahead of them.

Gig Review: Villainy @ San Fran, Wellington - 20/07/2019
22 Jul 2019 // by Axl Scott
The night was Saturday, 20th July and a crowd was lined up ready to enter San Fran for a night of their lives, because none other than New Zealand rock legends, Villainy, were about to set the roof on fire! Opening with Raised In The Dark, the crowd was full of energy and it was quickly proven that having Raised In The Dark as the first song of the night was a very wise choice!
