Autumn Reverie - 'Speechless'
Review by Patrick Joseph & Staff
“Speechless” is a driving and energetic track with intensity and a killer sound. Production values are sky high on this song which will have you on the edge of your seat. Intricate guitar melodies weave together with well-crafted vocal melodies to keep the song’s energy propelling forward. Hard rock at its finest, this is music that is intelligently composed yet raw enough to elicit a cathartic emotional response from listeners. The shredding vocals and high-energy rhythm section make this song a total winner.
Lyrically, “Speechless” is cutting and blunt.
“It's why I drink, to forget everything, until i'm left with nothing.”
Themes of addiction and conflict match the emotional tone of the music perfectly.
“A sickness from the past, has somehow since relapsed, a creature made to tear the fibers left of you and me.”
The intense vocal delivery does perfect justice to these haunting and exhausting lyrics.
The arrangement of “Speechless” is fantastic. A close listen will reveal intricacies from every angle, creating a clearly well-designed arc. The explosive drum track is phenomenal. The rhythm guitar parts add excitement to the music underneath an engaging and acrobatic lead vocal. The dynamic swells in this song are huge. Listeners will love taking the emotional ride which is offered by this high-quality piece of music. “Speechless” will have you amped up moving with the motion of the song.
