Song of the day: Dyecrest - Read My Mind

Dyecrest are Mikael Salo: Lead Vocals, Henri Arola: Guitar, Backing Vocals, Matti Pasanen: Guitar, Backing Vocals, Pirkka Ohlis: Guitar, Keyboards, Backing Vocals, Jukka Matilainen on bass and Niko Takala on Drums.

This is their new single, called "Read My Mind". The band says about the song: "This song was co-written by Kimmo Blom, very straight-to-the-point, striking, and catchy song! Combination of heavy, pulsating verse and the adherent, sing-along chorus. Its story is about a situation where a person realizes/understands that the relationship with someone else has reached the point of no return. Maybe the most defining line of the lyrics: ”No use in keep on wasting more of our lives… "

The official video is very cool and super high quality, as well as the performance by the band: tasty riffs, a fantastic solo, solid rhythm section and aggressive but melodic vocals at the same time (the chorus is very catchy and it reminds me of Stratovarius). The arrangement and the production are spot on as well.
