Music Finds #10 – Lynch the Devil
“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs of the past week.”
Last time on Music Finds I took a look back. Today I won’t walk the line in the same manner of nostalgia, but we will be having some aspects of the past to consider today as well. First a story.
During my prime interest in Visual Kei and Japanese music, I was constantly searching for new bands – anything goes, which is a great attitude that helps one discover new music, but also new angles. However, as I grew more and more familiar with the scene over the years, my hunt for the unknown got trapped in a cage of bliss and satisfaction with what I already found (something that now days is a warning sign – always push yourself to discover more) and so my interest in “new” band faded. It was during this time that several bands really took my acquaintances with storm, which I never heard.
One of those bands were lynch. – and I didn’t check them out until now.
Which is a pity.
The music finds of this week is their song DEVIL.
This song is very riff-driven, being mainly based on the intro. That is also what catched my interest to begin with, next to the English/Japanese chorus. Of course it also has a breakdown to change things up.
To be honest, this is in no way an extra ordinary song, but it got fast paced energy that get you going!
But it is a gruesome reminder of how much music there is out there that I might appreciate but never hear.
