Changing time signatures, a lightning rhythm battery and extreme vocals are only some of the reasons Beseech The Scars deserves attention. For instance, the YouTube video for the Cambridge, England-based band’s second track, “Access All Areas (Official Visualiser Video),” delivers a synced, spellbound effect which is almost inescapable. But there is much more about Beseech The Scars.
Performance and production help make Beseech The Scars a serious contender among contemporary metalists. Enthusiasts looking for an infusion of post-pandemic readiness, Beseech The Scars’ “Access All Areas” fits the bill. The 6:48 cut is aggressive, cathartic, creative and highly amped. For anyone looking to cut loose when COVID becomes a memory, be sure to make playlist room for Beseech The Scars.
Giving a listen through headphones and then a larger home stereo system, all speaker cones, including the subwoofer, received a workout. Skins, cymbals, bass strings, guitar work, the vocals and more: everything is cranked. According to Beseech The Scars YouTube channel, “Access All Areas” is “a small part of a four-year plan.”
On screen, as the music maintains intensity levels, an enveloping background pulses and flows from icy grays to an ember red and back again. All the while, a steady, stylized image hovers at the focal point as the background changes. The motion of steadily moving bricks along the walls, in and out, creates a hypnotizing effect. At about the 5:07 mark, the background turns dark for the first time. All in all, Beseech The Scars serves a one-two of powerful music matched with an intriguing video.
