As both a (card-carrying) metalhead and nerd, I absolutely live for the occasional convergence of A. metal and B. nerd stuff. Luckily for this particularly highfalutin scribe, the Sleeping Village effectively has a band on retainer for such stuff: namely, Underking, the solo project of one Maxwell Jeffries. You may recognize the name from our premiere of the Avatar: The Last Airbender-inspired "Dragon of the West." His latest barn-burner of a track, entitled "Shadow I've Become," dives unabashedly into the mythos of Star Wars, taking as its tortured protagonist our favorite son of Dathomir. That's right, dear readers: it's time for a little Maul.
Obviously, however, you don't need to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy this offering. While flitting between a variety of loosely defined genres, the track itself is built on a hotbed of hard-hitting riffage and disgustingly infectious vocal hooks.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry!
