In the overcrowded and often frenetic nowadays music scene, it is very tough to find artists who are really free to create music that doesn’t follow the synthetic and sterile rules of mainstream standards. Artists that have a real connection with their music like Chris Maragoth are welcome as a deep breath of fresh air after a long day. Today, at Planet Singer, we have the great pleasure to listen to his first Ep “Lost And Separated,” an outstanding first release the follows the two great singles “The Entrance” and “Hoping For Salvation,” both released in 2019.
Chris Maragoth is a talented singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer with a long career in music that counts numerous collaborations with bands and musicians. The Ep begins with the title track’s intense atmospheres, a perfect balance between Rock and Metal, with strong synth, goth, and progressive vibes that sets the mood for this great release. The powerful drumming and catchy guitar riffs support Chris’s evocative vocals that, thanks to his incredible ability to interpret every word with great emphasis, make this track a pure gem in its genre. It is the time for the more Hard Rock oriented “The Veil,” where we can appreciate another side of this incredible artist; the track flows smoothly and leads to the Instrumental “Shattered,” a song that shows the excellent skills of Chris, both as a songwriter and as a musician!
Beautiful guitar arpeggios introduce us to the last track of this Ep, “Without You,” where we can appreciate the excellent performance of guest singer Nadine Hope behind the microphone; this is another incredible song that shows the versatility of a talented musician whose artistic maturity is evident both in is songwriting and in his performances. We can’t wait now for his next release and, hopefully, a full-length album soon!
