Meat in Space is a DIY rock project where all of the songs are written, recorded to tape, and produced by just one person who also happens to play all of the instruments on the songs too.
Chromium Dioxide is his latest track and was released on 24/02/2023.
Kicking off with some feedback, the listener is under no illusions as to what this song is all about right from the start, and that, my friends, is loud, noisy music! (And who doesn’t like loud, noisy music eh?)
The guitars are raw on this track with distortion that provides the 90’s grungey feel it has, yet the heavy riffs can also place this into numerous other genres. The drumming is energetic, giving a punk vibe, with lots of crashing cymbals and pounding bass drums while maintaining an almost primal sound.
The vocals are strong, with a slight quirkiness to them that really makes them stand out and with layered backups, the song has a great depth to it.
The music behind the vocals and lyrics could appear to be somewhat chaotic and noisy to some people but I think this is what gives the track its charm. There is always something for the listener to hear and more than one play through of this track is an absolute must if you are to hear everything the song has to offer.
I really liked this track and I think it will appeal to a lot of people. It has its own unique allure but also one that is very reminiscent of 90’s rock/alternative rock, therefore giving the song a very nostalgic feel, while, at the same time, having a modern twist to it that keeps it fresh and up to date. And all of this from just one main is simply astounding.
Great, great track that must be heard! Go and check him out! Now! Go on!
