Palisades – Through Hell (Track Of The Day, 24th February)

Our Track Of The Day is a track from New Jersey electronicore band, Palisades. They released their self-titled album last month, and “Through Hell” was a stand out.

While reviewing Palisades, we found we were waiting for heaviness to hit where the song was touching on dark and painful concepts. There was a sense of ‘playing it safe’ and staying relatively neutral musically.

But in “Through Hell”, the mask of neutrality came off and we got to see all of it laid bare. From our review:

“Through Hell” is the heaviness we didn’t see in “Dark”. “Through Hell” is killer from the get-go with pummeled drums, heavy guitars, and vocals that veer into screams and strong vents. It also goes a little toward explaining the neutral nature of “Dark”; the approach of keeping in control and containing the brokenness and the rage. It feels really good seeing it all coming out in “Through Hell”.

“So go
I keep pretending I have control
I wear a mask so you’ll never know
I’m bottled up ready to explode
So go”

The focal moments upon drums and guitar are impressively awesome. The outro with crowd vocals backing the question of whether peace and serenity will be found (or not) is such a beautiful moment. Great track.”
