Australian metallers, Meshiaak, have released a brand new single called Tears that Burn the Son. It comes from their incoming new album, Mask of All Misery.
Mask of All Misery is due to drop on the 15th of November via Mascot Records. It is the follow up to the band’s successful debut, Alliance of Thieves which came out almost three years ago. The Aussie 4 piece have since added a new member on drums in David Godfrey. He replaces Jon Dette for logistical reasons. Dette being US based was obviously hindering the band. Alongside Godfrey, Meshiaak are Danny Camilleri, Dean Wells and Andrew Cameron.
Tears that Burn the Son is just short of 5 minutes long. It has a lot going for it and has a bit of a progressive rock feel to it. The guitars are exciting playing out continuous riffs with loads of melody and a really full sound. We get slower verses that ramp up the pace for a hard rocking chorus that is infectious. The vocals are good, well sung and predominantly clean but with a little attitude. There is a nice little old school sounding solo too that could have been plucked from the 80’s. It all makes for a very good, very catchy song with a chorus that sticks in your head for days.
Speaking about Mask of All Misery, Camilleri states: “The album deals with a lot of personal reflection and issues as well as attacking or addressing much broader issues concerning perhaps the ignorance of society in regards to what’s going on around us all”.
Tears that Burn the Son is out now on all the usual streaming platforms. You can preorder a copy of Mask of All Misery from here.
