There is not much information about Gravity Bound on the web, but hailing from UK and having an interesting blend of Power, Folk and Melodic Death Metal, I could not resist the urge to check them out.
Dangerous to Know is their first single, and if this is the shape of things to come for future albums, then hell yes! This is a solo project written by Dom Shaw, illustrating and expanding the metal spectrum beyond what I thought was possible. The track has a wide range of tempo changes and arrangements, ranging from melodic death at it’s finest to classic power metal elements. Extraordinary guitar work throughout it’s entirety that make most old school guitar heroes look like amateurs. I have no clue what goes on in Dom’s head, that possessed him to write such complex arrangements, and actually pull it off, is simply outstanding. On the vocal front, there is a mix of both guttural and clean singing, but not to the extent of the usual clean vocals, it’s still on the heavy/aggressive side and not wimpy sounding like most bands tend to favour.
I strongly recommend everyone to check this out, I am sure you will be blown away by the sheer talent displayed in this track.
