Waves of Dread: Forevermore

English shoegaze band Waves of Dread have penchant for adding layers upon layers and their new single Forevermore could have done with a little less of that, which would have made life easier for the vocalists and the lead guitarist to rise above the din. The main melody is rather good, but hiring an engineer who is not afraid to handle the faders would open up their sound a bit.

Forevermore is a self-released single. Buy it from their website. It is a track from their debut album, A Bad Dream in a Raging Sea, due for release on October 13th.

  1. I agree, the bass and drums are too loud. This shouldn't take too much away from the fact that this is a fantastic single. Great catchy riff, danceable beat and dreamy vocals. Maybe a more sympathetic mix would really help this one soar.
