The Death of Me blends together Tom’s supersonic vocals with a stripped-down rock in the vein of AC/DC and Kyuss. The ferocity of this single is further punctuated with sizzling guitar work and on-point drums. The melodies encountered during this cut will bury themselves deeply into the psyche of anyone listening in.
Rise is a power ballad that count easily hang with the highlights of the genre. Tom’s vocals are given a focal spot on this track, bolstered through a set of secondary vocals. Martial drumming and the lightest guitar work gradually whip up into something momentous as Rise moves into its chorus. Taken together with The Death of Me, Rise represents two distinct sides of this veteran performer’s repertoire.
