Track analysis:

1 – The Last Resort

Kicking off with a muffled instrumental, GYROAXIA brings a full-throttle instrumental with “The last resort”.

This song however is much softer than anything the band has released so far. The sound welcomes synths in the background and a softer rock sound in which the pounding drums lead the way.

The verses are relentless, with the drums never stopping once to take a breather, as the synths paint the background alongside the bassline.

The energy levels are high, and the guitars go low and dirty for the chorus, cranking up the tension in a way that you will find yourself screaming “STAND UUUUUUP” alongside Ogasawara.

The bridge puts the synths in the spotlight before delivering an awesome break with Jin Ogasawara going for screamo alongside the shredding guitars.

This different approach to GYROAXIA’s sound – softer and not as intense as their trademark heavy punk-rock sound or even the fancy stuff that was in “Freestyle” – is quite interesting. To me, this shows a band evolving its sound and experimenting with different things. 

It is undeniable that the drums are the heart of GYROAXIA’s sound but hell if they aren’t show stealer in this performance!

At the same time, I love how GYROAXIA is keeping everyone on their toes for each new entry in their repertoire. The band is not repeating the same formula over and over again. As a result, fans keep shredding guitar tunes in the most varied rock subgenres and with so many fancy twists within each.

Worth mentioning that it is always a treat to get those screamo parts in the performance. Jin Ogasawara seems to have fully got in his groove when it comes to those, making smoother transitions to and out of those parts.

All in all, “The last resort” is a high-throttle rock tune that fully deserves your attention, especially if you enjoy good rock music.
