An Anthemic Punk Single from Dylan Disaster and the Revelry

A new single release from Dylan Disaster and The Revelry comes through with a classic and driving punk rock approach that hits hard and also boasts his heart that really serves as a character and gets you completely attached to the song super quickly.

"Nothingness" has a sort of youthful cry out about the changes that you go through in life, loss, and certain kinds of struggles that people go through and how it affects their emotional state and these are the kinds of things that we can all relate to no matter who we are or where we are and it songs like this that give that youthful cry out and anthemic and truthful feel which is incredibly important because we need someone to speak out on these kinds of things.

I'll say it again, this song boasts tons of heart and I think that's where its power lies because when you hear this track not only does it give you a certain feeling inside your body, but it also causes certain kinds of memories to pop into your head and the feelings that go along with those, and for me, it's sort of incredible to listen to any kind of music you can automatically connect with and understand.

Lyrically it's almost like poetry in a way or at least it is for me and although it's not very metaphoric, it's super straightforward and beautifully written because it's so raw.

Musically this song thrashes out and delivers a classic punk feel but it also puts out that pop overtone so that everything is really catchy giving this whole thing a blend of color and edginess that's balanced extremely well.

The energy across this track is incredible as well and it almost feels like it was recorded live on the floor because it's as if the players are feeding off of each other the whole time and it makes you just want to go see this live in your face because if the energy is captured on record this well, then seeing them alive would be awesome.

And this is the kind of feeling I want to get from good, catchy, punk anthems like this one.

The song is an ode to things passed and there is certainly something about it that feels like it could have served as the soundtrack to a certain chapter in my own life.

So, in a way, it's about coming to terms with certain things and moving forward but not forgetting it.

This track had charisma, power, heart, persona, and so much more all rolled up into one massive banger of a single and it definitely made me want to take a little bit of a deep dive into the previous releases from the artist and I'm glad that I did because there's a slew of hard-hitting songs in the forms of singles and albums that showcase different sides of the songwriting and personality.

I would start with the single and then work my way back because there's a lot to soak in here, and make sure you turn it nice and Loud because it only gets better the louder it goes.

This track in particular gets a straight-up 9 out of 10.
