Kraków, Poland based metalcore band Not Enough are Sergey Stovba on screams/clean vocals and Artur Popławski on guitar/clean vocals. (Just two guys? Surely not, given this massiveness of sound..)
With a stirring monochrome lyric video, “Dissolving” feels like experiencing a personal crisis in a snow storm. The track has numerous elements of sound and takes on a feeling of a story unfolding because of it.
From the beautiful beginnings, flowing of sound and with hushed vocals, we are moved through feelings of concern and alarm, with seeking riffs calling out. Screams and roars pull downward with heaviness of where things have ended up. The ‘character’ of the track seems to have tried to protect themselves, yet have still ended up coming face-to-face with what they feared.
“Dissolving” intertwines a fear of loss with questions about their own identity. There is a spoken word admission to another. They took the impact of the darkness that one that they loved was facing, and found themselves impacted too, even after some time.
“And you know that I tried
To reach your hand but reached the disaster
And the demons still live inside”
There is palpable panic of ‘what do I do?’ in the aftermath of this, with lyrics roared. They have become stuck with their own personal pain because of their experience with another.
Tandem vocals create a climactic close to the song, echoing both the weight of resentment, and the beauty of their selflessness toward another.
“Dissolving” is an impressive second release from the newly formed Polish duo. You might want to keep an eye on what they get up to via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/notenoughsounds/
