Thomas Polychuck is the name and delivering Linkin Park like nu-metal vibes mixed with the shred of Yngwie J Malmsteen is the game. Might as well add his love of M.M.A as this dude kicks ass!
Polychuck hails from Montreal and has just released his debut EP “Shadows Exposed” which as you can tell by the two references I mentioned above, has a mix bag of rock up his sleeve!
The five songs that make up the EP are catchy tracks as they are great songs as opening track “Beating Myself Down” proves with almost a swinging honky tonk piano vibe mixed with a huge classic rock like verse. Ladano in his review said the solo at the end will knock you on your ass!
“Exposure” is another great track that features another stellar power rock verse that has a super shred like solo that washes out into a total throwback synth like vibe that is so catchy. Almost prog like as the song ramps down. The video for “Exposure” has pulled in almost 30,000 views on YouTube so people are watching.
“In The Dark” as well begins with a swirl of beats and Polychuck shows us all that the dude has a stellar voice and yet another catchy chorus. This fella knows the fine art of writing hooks!
Song number four “Driving Me Mad” has a mid tempo like feel but with a swirl of guitar solos throughout the track. In saying that it works as you can really hear how great of a guitarist Polychuck is.
Wrapping things up is “Lights Out” which is another keys driven tune with some nice guitar riffing layering things nicely over the top. Basically adding icing to the cake.
Polychuck is one talented mofo as these five songs prove. I like the fact that he keeps things short n simple as the longest song checks in at 3:18 seconds!
I ask you all that follow this blog check out Polychucks “Shadows Exposed” on your preferred choice of streaming. Just add it to your library and expand your musical horizons!
