Dayseeker – Dark Sun | Album Review

Fifth full album from a post-hardcore/metalcore band that is this time going into synthwave territory. The vocals work and the backtrack and synthetic are well done, but the instrument work is just present. It’s all an afterthought. I don’t hate it but this style has been done before by much better bands and along with some fairly cliche writing, it’s not much to get excited over. If you wanted Dark Sun to be like The Midnight, you’ll be disappointed. You’ll also be disappointed if you wanted metalcore. Not awful, but just a playlist of similar-sounding electronic songs that blur together. 5/10.
