Album Review By JD Rich

Boston Rock Radio



Many times I have taken an audio journey overseas to review new music from countries outside my tiny corner of the world. Time and time again, I can always count on Finland to offer the hardest, most elegant interpretation of NuMetal available. This one is no exception. I’m talking about Vultures Die Alone, the third release from Finnish Symphonic Metal band Arion. I’m guessing they adopted their moniker from the Greek mythology tale of a deity-born horse with unfathomable speed, and this description fits.​

To say Arion is on the precipice of a global breakout is a sad understatement. Given the past year suffering through the recent global breakout, I’d much rather have this kind, thank you very much. So what makes Arion different from other Metalcore bands out there? I guarantee if you ask ten different people, you’ll get ten different answers. That’s exactly what happened when I posed that question to the voices in my head. I noticed the lyrics were unusually clear, and the vocal quality blew my mind! From a scream to a whisper, the high end down to lower ranges, all aspects were precisely connected to the music’s pace and tone. Not only is audio fatigue avoided with expert prowess, but enthusiasm for what’s next is built up to a fever pitch. I was as excited to hear the progression of each track as (I imagined) the band was while creating them!​

Rapid-fire percussion along with killer speed riffs keep the ferocity of energy at an all-time high, darting and diving through masterful harmonies. Only Arion has the ability to release us from their sonic whirlwind, and they know it. When they do slow down (for three tracks), we are awash in some of the most beautiful, soul-touching music hardly ever heard in this specific format. One track is a pure instrumental delicacy, a piece that conjures images of contemplation, solidarity, and finally, victory.

Vultures Die Alone is a compilation for those who also like to travel further into musical machinations. Yeah, it can get pretty deep, but in a good way. Even the title, Vultures Die Alone, hints at the metaphysical tendencies Arion infuses into their work. It’s also an ideal album to kickstart an otherwise dull gathering to liven things up by a few hundred percent. The choice is yours to play with. And, since the EP just came out on April 9th, let’s play!
