Track analysis:

1 – Milestone

Dirty guitar riffs and groovy drums kick open the doors of “MILESTONE”.

Despite the intense intro, don’t expect the same time from the verses. Also, expect this song to sound nothing like what the band has released in the past.

The drums are commanding in the verses, giving it a lot of energy while the guitars and bass go ballistic in the background as you approach the chorus.

But what awaits you in the chorus is something different. Yes, this song is filled with surprises or more like crafty twists to things that you would usually anticipate in a rock tune.

The chorus is really groovy and self-contained, leaving more than enough space for Jin Ogasawara to take the lead and hook you to the song.

It is also well worth mentioning that, when the chorus kicks in, the drums go crazy on the ride, giving a different flavor to this song that takes the band more towards an 80s style of rock.

And indeed, you do get a confirmation of that being the path for this song as the rock instrumental fades away giving the spotlight to the melancholic piano. Following that piano part comes a classic rock riff on the guitar before dropping you off in the energetic instrumental that you were experiencing until then.

This part stands out in this song for how raw and emotional it is, with Jin Ogasawara showing more of his technique in here, putting aside his raw, slightly rough delivery and fully embracing a soft, passionate delivery.

As “MILESTONE” wrapped up, I am left wanting even more from GYROAXIA, especially hearing how much the band has evolved musically.
