Sundown by Ye Angst: Review
Ye Angst’s 2011 single ‘Sundown’ is a high-speed car chase of electrifying guitar riffs and everything rock n roll.
The song does not waste a second grabbing the attention of the listeners with its electrifying guitar riff and hard-hitting drums. The driving riff is infectious in its melodic hook. Right after I listened to this, I grabbed my guitar and started playing this riff for hours on end. It’s a very fun riff to play and listen to that I wish I came up with. The tone is also crisp and unique which makes it stand out from the crowd. As the song progressed, the rest of the instruments are added to the mix giving it a fuller sound. The vocals are suppressed and give the song a grungy ‘industrial metal’ touch. Speaking of which, throughout the song, there are several passages that show a shift in tone and style. It is still a riff-driven classic rock song but there are transitions in different musical styles such as hardcore, djent, funk, and prog.
The soundstage of this song is just mind-blowing. This is achieved not only by diversifying the style of music but also through clever production techniques like overlaying the vocals and guitars. The same melody playing on different positions on the guitar gives the tone a bigger, fuller sound. The same is true for the vocals.
Overall, this very high-energy fast-paced song is very fun to listen to and rock out on your guitar. Whether you play guitar or not, you’d still appreciate the infectious riff.
