The aptly titled song Saraswati from SKYWATCHER storms through with extreme metal and techno’s unashamed weight and pace. A uniquely innovative, unpredictable mix of modern sound design and the classic thunder of heavy metal.
Joey de Punder from Boxtel, the Netherlands, is the one-man instrumental progressive metal project SKYWATCHER. He will release his maiden solo album, titled “Godless Temple,” in 2021. His heady blend of djent-fueled riffs and Arabic/Atmospheric melodies has resulted in a sound that is as grounded in the present as it is in spirituality. The cognitive processes and the music both strike a balance. Years of effort have resulted in Godless Temple!
SKYWATCHER’s latest album, “Godless Temple,” is dedicated to his adored father’s enduring spirit.
Saraswati combines captivating chord progressions with the pure emotion of metal’s real roar to create a truly unforgettable experience. It gets going in a highly immersive, haunting, and unafraid manner as the game progresses.
Saraswati emerges, dark in the atmosphere but calmer in speed as it drips into the room at first. Another new riff pops out against a new drumline – innovative metal playing to its inherent strengths.
All throughout the song, there is a strong sense of purpose and direction, and it is all about feeling. Harmonic relationships are exploited throughout the arrangement of the guitar sounds to create warmth and increase interest throughout the piece.
The song Saraswati links SKYWATCHER down an innovative metal road, opting for a distinct unity of sub-genres and presenting a powerful capability and musicianship that’s both immersive and highly amazing. This artist’s most excellent highlight thus far.
