Genre: Alternative Rock
Best Element: Uniform style without having three sound-alike songs.
It is very hard to classify Murdervan’s sound. At times, they sound very much like an old-school punk band, while at other times, they sound like an almost psychedelic alternative rock band.
That’s not to say that Murdervan doesn’t have a unique sound. The pervasive sound is dark and brooding, with sometimes angry vocals. They are skilled at taking this overall style of music and mixing it up, making for three listenable tracks. For example, “Everyone Else”, the first track on this three song demo, sounds very trippy, while the last track, “Like a King”, has a more driving, quick, punk-ish feel to it. The middle track, “Losing Blood”, is a combination of both of these.
Thus, each of the songs on this three song demo has a different sound, giving a pretty decent idea of what Murdervan’s overall sound would be on a full length release.
