No Clean Singing is premiering the title track from Mavradoxa's upcoming album "Nightmarrow"


Nightmarrow Pre-orders

"Musically, these dire musings and dreadful warnings are voiced in emotionally powerful music, through gloomy yet gleaming riffs accented by fretless bass, by the crack and clatter of vibrant drumming, and by scorching vocal fury. The music is atmospheric, in the sense that it generates pervasive moods of beleaguered futility as well as glimpses of the wonder that is relentlessly being shredded. But the music is also progressive-minded in its instrumental permutations, and dynamic in its changes as it captures these shifting visions, and so it proves to be mentally engrossing as well as deeply mood-altering.

The song includes a soft, beautiful, introspective interlude (as if a cautious reflection on what might be if we wise up), in addition to brazen, blood-rushing surges of intensity (as if warning sirens of devastation ahead), and somber clean vocals (by guest singer Matt Greenwood) as well as those ravaging harsh ones. The band make full use of the 9 1/2 minutes they’ve set aside for this track, creating a rich tapestry of sound that is as much about bloom as decay, and seems to leave all its questions hanging, unresolved, waiting to see if we learn in time."
