The Median Man Album Review & Interview

‘Warrior In The Night’ by Harmonize

“Warriors In Line,” is a thumping opener. A song that clearly sets the goals and brings about the turning of the screw.

“Never Back Down,” adds grit and power to the fore. Sneaking through the twisting vines of time. Slashing the wraparound and gaining ground. The riffs are headbang worthy, and the vocal lines are simply perfect.

“Warrior In The Night,”  is  slow build. A song that shifts through the temperature, gaining ground and twisting through the turnaround. A song that leverages patience and feeling to create a groundswell in chaos. When it quickens and the vocals come through, the band truly shine through.

“The Astonishing End,” twists and turns. Revelling in the free-fall, twisting the mark of the world. Thrilling and trilling in equal measure, burnishing credentials that twist the world for all.

“Crawling Among Shadows,” is a snarling monster of a song that truly gets to the heart of the matter.

An interview with Harmonize

  • How do you approach songwriting, and did that approach change for Warrior in The Night?

Nowadays, we work very methodically and creatively for the development of our second album, where we firstly agree upon a broader theme, such as an umbrella concept, to capture the atmosphere of the whole album. After each one of us works on different riffs and melodies we compose the music and add the drums. Having compiled our drafts, we then work on individual themes for each track, acting as guidelines for lyric writing.

  • However, with Warrior in the Night, writing was slightly different because certain songs were written earlier than others and thus needed to be re-written. Besides that, it was a similar process. Are there any themes that you specifically focused on during Warrior In The Night, if so why?

Absolutely! Firstly, we would like to clarify that we are a conceptual band. Our themes are based on an original epic fantasy story in the making. Warrior in the Night acted as an introduction to the story, focusing around the character of the Warrior, who was fighting for a now lost Kingdom in a retaliation battle, until he was met with an ultimatum, an offer or a dilemma, almost similar to that of Dr. Faustus.

  • What song best defines the band?

I would say that Crawling Among Shadows is probably the track which best defines our musical aesthetic for the time being, as it has dark power metal elements.

  • What plans do you have for the future?

We are currently working on our next full-length album, so for the nearest future, we will probably be releasing a single, until we release our second album. We are also hoping to start touring soon and to publish our story in text at a later date. Presently, we are taking part in the Ride To Rock Festival by RTR Records Brazil in an online event.
