Formed in the summer of 2017, Dutch band Mountain Eye has taken the alternative metal sound that bands like Korn, Linkin Park and Slipknot presented to the world at the beginning of the century and transformed it to a sound that fits this decade.
Recently signed to Crusader Records, Mountain Eye has released their first single for the label and it’s called ‘My Last Winter Trail’.
‘My Last Winter Trail’ is about releasing one’s self physically and spiritually from the demons that try to crush the very essence of who we are and feed on our failures and fears.
Musically, the dark synths create an ominous introduction until the song breaks loose into an epic choir-like chorus with pounding drums and melodic guitars. Intricate and technical passages and variations show the incredible depth of the band.
Back on their debut album, Roads Uncharted, released in January 2019, Mountain Eye explored the extremes of life; the thin line between happiness and sadness that we all experience, and what makes us all human.
