The latest release from US dark wave band 'Ich Lüge' comes in the form of an energetic track titled "What's It Like to Be Buried Alive?". The song is taken from the album 'A Picture Perfect Stab to the Heart'. With its strong bassline and a stark stereo effect coursing through my skull through my headphones, the song begins and immediately draws the listener in.
The drum tracks of the song are absolutely amazing and give it the necessary drive to bob along. The vocals, however, could use a little less electronic post-processing, as sometimes less is more. Nevertheless, the tonality and emotional quality fits the mood of the song perfectly.
The transitions from verse to chorus are beautifully crisp and perfectly timed, making the song particularly enjoyable to listen to. The bridge is also great, although it seems a little lacking in power at the end. The implementation of the pecking synths at 03:18 minutes, however, is a real redemption that gets the song going again and takes the audience on a wonderful journey.
Overall, "What's It Like to Be Buried Alive?" is an awesome track and shows that 'Ich Lüge' is a band that really knows how to fuse dark wave and goth, in combination with a lot of electronics, in a way that is unique and absolutely captivating.
