Iconoclast Release Music Video2013-06-22 by Krossceeper | 8 Comments
|Perth progressive death-core group Iconoclast have released a music video to accompany their new song, entitled 'Seditionist'. No album has been announced as of yet however, though the band is expected to have a new release later in this year.|
The music video can be viewed here:
The track can also be downloaded for free from their bandcamp: http://iconoclastau.bandcamp.com/
It has a few of the pitfalls of generic deathcore but I still found it enjoyable. I'm a fuckin retard though.
How is this progressive? Like...at all?
Bringing the junz. Nothing really "progressive" about it, except maybe the more atmospheric melodic guitar over the chugs. I feel like deathcore is probably one of, if not the most, difficult subgenre to make progressive. Some groups "can" pull it off, like Slice the Cake or Bleed From Within (to a certain extent), but overall the focus lies in brutality, not in progressive thinking. Iconoclast has some nice atmosphere but it clashes with the br00talz.
In terms of video, reminds me too much of Stray From the Path's "Damien", and conceptually it's a very unoriginal concept.
Yeah, I feel like metalcore and prog music don't really go well together. It can be done, but usually it ends up either being metalcore with some prog elements (Born of Osiris) or prog metal with slight metalcore elements (Between the Buried and Me)
Anyways, I guess the song wasn't bad. Decent for chug chug deathcore. I'm just really confused by the "progressive" tag
Some proto-djent stuff going on. Don't hear progressive.
That was not good.
