Review ~ Headache ATTACK!!! - The Death of Majalengka

Here I would review Headache ATTACK!!!’s new single entitled "The Death of Majalengka". If you’re clueless about this band, you should probably read my older post about them here. And oh, you can download the single for free here.

First of all, I noticed that the recording quality of this brand new single is way better than their previous single, “Transisi”. In any case, let’s start the review and jump into the first minutes of this song.

To begin with, let’s start with the eerie yet epic piano breakdowns! If you like Moi dix Mois and love their piano breakdowns, you’ll probably like this one as well. The piano plays its parts at the beginning, at the middle, and at the end of the song.

Anyway, after the gothic vocals open this song, a scream emerges. The very first scream in this song reminds me of the last scream in this song btw, lol. Overall, I think the screams belong to the kind that you would find when you listen to Nemesis or Thirteen. A friend of mine says that it seems like the band got some influence from Chthonic, a Taiwanese extreme metal band. Well, that’s probably true. Despite the fact that Chthonic uses shrieking vocals a lot, you cannot find any shrieking vocal here.

As time goes by, I hear some ‘orchestratic’ synth just like in DivineCoressica’s"Will I Am", accompanied by some brief ‘slashing’ synths at some points which create metaphysical atmosphere with wandering souls inside. This really suits death as the main theme of this song. The drums and guitars sound great. They know where to stop and where to go. The guitars begin taking the spotlight in (02:18). The guitar stops are quite catchy. Yes. I mean that kind of sounds which resemble the brakes of a running motorcycle.

Remember when I said that the unclean vocals resemble to that of Thirteen’s Raynard Rahardja on the fourth paragraph? No? Well, this becomes more apparent in (02:30). If you’re curious, go compare them with Raynard’s vocals in “Cherry Petite Raspberry”. And hell, love that first high-pitched scream in (02:36)! The two distinct types of screams you hear consecutively make a good combo, don’t you think? To be honest, I personally find it really impressive. The next two high-pitched screams do not do as much though.

Here is the music video:


Eargasm level: 4.5 out of 5! *fanfare*

That’s all for today, folks! See ya next post!
