Sound Bites: Treasures Drowned

Rasplyn EDM is a combo or cross-over genre by itself. Consisting of electronica textures and pop/trance music, EDM is emerging as one of the more popular styles from music creators over the past year.

Indie artist Carolyn O’Neill, aka Rasplyn, takes the electronica element and meshes with a soothing classical style of film music with her latest album Scenes Through The Magic Eye.

This Sound Bite explores the third track from the release titled Treasures Drowned. A calming yet stirring piece of music that belongs on a film score, the experimental nature of Rasplyn’s songwriting begs a return after the first listen. Strings and synth build a slow mysteriousness that carries through the course of the piece Treasures Drowned. Other tracks from the album reflect her ability to soothe and build eloquently.

No Ordinary Experience Playlist

You+TheAppetizer Music is its own experience, but true fans are drawn to something special. The same old thing never appeals to people like us. Our mission each week is to present music from both known and unknown artists that you won’t find on other media outlets, be it radio or online. Wait, maybe you will find them elsewhere, but after a lot of searching. It’s no ordinary experience to listen to excellent B-side tracks from your favorite artists paired with a new, emerging band from somewhere you don’t know. That’s us and that’s this week. Enjoy!

Sound Bites: Under A Darkened Sky

XanderDemo Metal is known for many things which categorize it apart from all other forms of rock. The main difference is the use of fast, aggressive lead guitar or shred guitar. Some of the most popular shred guitarists include Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Ulrich Roth (Scorpions), and Steve Vai. Shred is found outside of the metal genre as well including jazz fusion, blues, and even modern bluegrass music.

Shred guitarist Xander Demos utilizes a powerful arsenal of speed, finger dexterity, and scale dominance in Under A Darkened Sky. Aside from the guitar work, the song shines with excellent drums and vocals, making for a rocking metal tune.

The video for Under A Darkened Sky contains photos and not the visual example of Xander Demos’ guitar prowess. However, this melodic shred illustrates his talent very well. Xander’s other videos showcase his skills, talent, an equipment for others interested in learning how to shred (or best techniques).
