Picking up the sensual scents of last year’s SYNC.WAV but mashing it with the raw, stomping aggression of current single BLACK_WAVE, WOULDYOUWAITFORME? manages to straddle the line between anthemic and pit ready with an effortless grace that shouldn’t be present amongst such downtuned nastiness… but that’s how Moodring do it.
Floridan alt-metallers, MOODRING, have today returned with BLACK_WAVE. a boiling blend of guitar abrasion, synthetic dissonance and an unexpectedly euphoric chorus, BLACK_WAVE is a strike of empowerment, each ugly groove and dramatic tonal shift showcases their aesthetic evolution: though the sound and visuals are thick and laden with grime, it's crystal clear that Moodring are writing their own playbook. The first new music since last year’s acclaimed debut full length Stargazer, BLACK_WAVE finds Moodring putting darkness and aggression on speed dial.
