Under the Surface is the first track from Ascension, the latest album by Atlanta alternative metal band Pistols At Dawn. And god what an opener! The recording was done by Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Sylvia Massy who has worked with bands like Tool and System Of A Down. Like their fellow bands from Georgia, legends Mastodon and Sevendust, Pistols At Dawn show that they’re a force to be reckoned with.
With synths beginning the song, you are taken away by the storm of heaviness that just pushes you to the wall! Heavy drums, a thundering bass line, with tasty low end rhyhtm guitars enter in. Heavy as hell! Joyful as metal paradise. A hypnotic guitar riff dominates the initial lines of the verses. However, a swift change to double time keeps you hooked and by surprise. The screams on the song are top-notch, blending with the cleans with perfection. The bridge with its build up leads to a final chorus with infinite groove and heaviness.
Two singles were previously released from the album: Truth and Fly. While Truth had more of an alternative rock vibe, Fly pushed the heaviness guns some notches higher. With Under the Surface, Pistols At Down draws their groovy, sludgy, and grunge vibes into a metal concoction with high levels of toxicity. The song is accompanied by a stunning music video which consists of an office switching to a celebratory chaotic mood as Pistols At Dawn rocks the song out. That’s one sight I’d like to see in my office!
Under the Surface by Pistols At Dawn is one mosh pitting banger that will require a complementary wall of death to quench.
