Review: Despised Virtue – Memories (Single)

defender EP


Artist: Despised Virtue
Album: Memories – Single
Rating: 5/5

The latest single from Despised Virtue, aptly named “Memories”, is a cut above the rest. Starting off with heavy chugs and destructive drum beats, this track already has a sinister tone. Things are just as they appear from the start, when Robby comes in with his unique growls and says “I am the reason you dream. I am the reason you have these memories. You have the glory of watching me fall to the ground.” Deception is a heavy theme in this track and with all tracks like this, comes the element of revenge. Later on in the track is when this becomes apparent “I am the beast lurking in your closet, you’re going to pay for what you’ve done to me” The theme is enough to make you cringe but it’s not gory or violent like you’d expect most tracks like this to be. That, in itself, makes this track amazing. Put it together with well-placed breakdowns, face-melting solos, and of course, Robby’s amazing screams and you have a molotov cocktail of destruction ready to demolish anything in its path! Go check this track out and be on the lookout for their debut EP, “Defender” out later this year!
