5 stars Obiymy Doschu, an unidentified band from Ukraine, really made me shout! In the eight years since their release of their first year, they have brought in a meticulous new album "Son" in 2017 (not the son's meaning, but the "dream" of Ukrainian). The band explained on the official website that 72 minutes, 11 songs, 15 musicians, including a string quartet, 10 sound engineers, completed 200 hours of recording in 7 different studios in 3 cities. This is indeed a carefully crafted album! Their style is like symphony + metal, but it is attributed to crossover, which I understand very well, because there are indeed some popular elements. They are symphonic, but they are more classical than the current avant-garde symphonies. The string quartet band blesses them with a strong classical flavor, stringy atmosphere, grace, and elegance. Say they are metal, but far from the current extreme metal, more like heavy, but just right, everything serves the theme. Therefore, the symphony metal of the band and the bad streets is not as good as it is. The official website also said to its own music: "Complicated, beautiful, poetic rock music and lush string arrangements, progress, neoclassicalism, new ballads and post-shake. This is the song that has been perfected for more than a decade." Indeed, what! The first thing I feel is that Ukrainian is also very nice (and Russian, of course, very much like it). The lead singer's skill is deep and he can handle it freely. The multi-part chorus is also well-arranged. There is almost no embarrassment. Second, strings and rock complement each other, make up for each other and sublimate, plus flute and saxophone, multi-device music is dazzling, but it won't win over the guests. The theme of the album is about the difficulties and difficulties faced by a person in the globalized world of modern urbanism. From her lowest point to a state of freedom, from death to rebirth, it can be said that it is very much in keeping with the modern spirit. This is definitely one of the best pre-roll albums of 2017.
