We just got our first snowfall of the season in the Denver area so I don’t know about you, but I’m interested in some music that will warm the soul. We have just that with our exclusive premiere of Legacy ID‘s new video for their song “Introspection”! Hailing from Riga, Latvia, the instrumental progressive metal band seems more interested in bringing the weighty riffs and mighty melodies with this song than prompting introspection, but I’ll leave that for you to decide:
This is a playful track that never gets boring despite its longer runtime at six minutes. A variety of guitar tones and moods are present here, from the neatly plucked notes of the introduction to the multilayered heavy shredding and tastefully added pinch harmonics. The song is at its best when there’s melodies weaving between the guitars. Even the drums get their spotlight with wonderful complementary rhythms that add to the catchiness of the song. Smaller touches like this place a band easily in my upper echelon of progressive music. It’s lovely, energetic and just what I needed on a chilly day!
