Cyanide Paradise - Downfall
Release: April 10, 2020
Length: 04:14
Origin: Netherlands

Dutch Melodic Death Metal band Cyanide Paradise was formed in 2019. In the same year they released their first EP "Reach for the Stars". In April 2020 the quintet has shown more recent vital signs by releasing their new single "Downfall". For this song Cyanide Paradise have joined forces with Yarne Heylen (Carnation).

Melodic and partially symphonic arrangements accompany a rough musical landscape while vocalist Linn presents the impressive firt-person narration of a person trying to be as good as they can while the world around them has become a dystopian nightmare. As dark as it is, it has something empowering and motivating.

Fans of Northern European Melodic Death and Black Metal will especially love the end of the track. Here, the harmony reminds me of bands such as Sonata Arctica or Ensiferum. In general, Cyanide Paradise are presenting themselves powerful and soulful on their new track. Good to know there is still some good Melodic Death Metal.
