HEMESATH – So Schön
BAND URL: https://www.facebook.com/hemesathband/
The German act named Hemesath is something quite different and hard to pigeonhole in terms of style and genre. Using such diffuse terms as alternative rock and alternative metal often blows ass simply because they tell you very little about the actual music, but in this case, I have no idea how else to classify the band’s rather intriguing and original sound. Somewhere between goth rock, industrial metal, electro rock, and catchy hard rock, you will find Hemesath, and their eclectic compositions range from melancholy affairs to huge-sounding barnstormers with lots of cool textures to them. Not everything flows together seamlessly, and certain parts and passages seem a little disjointed here and there, but overall, this is one musically enticing and colorful piece of work that weaves many different sources of inspiration together to great effect without losing focus on the fact that it is essentially all about churning out a memorable tune that will engage and entertain people on an emotional level. As with the riffs and melodies, the vocals are varied too, and the production is solid and professional, so there is very little reason why you should not give So Schön a number of spins and revel in its charm. Rock music with a cool twist to it and a successful experiment in so many ways.
