This is another post inspired by a song being stuck in my head for several days 🙂
The Murder of My Sweet (TMOMS) is a band I discovered very recently (through a YouTube artist whose cover of a Delain song I featured a few weeks earlier).
Unlike most bands where it takes a few listens for me to really get into their work, I dug TMOMS pretty much from the get-go. Described as “cinematic metal”, their music manages to be dramatic while staying catchy and accessible, and they pull off this combination while sounding authentic (unlike, say, Within Temptation in their attempt on sound more “mainstream” in their last two albums, which I was less impressed by).
Here’s “Storms of the Sea” from Divanity:
