Song Review : Starborn by Paul Martins featuring Amr Medhat

Paul Martin released a new track featured Amr Medhat entitled “Starborn“. Through this review I’ll take you to another experience in Paul Martin’s music.

The early seconds of the track were very atmospheric; as sounds of the sky  is followed by a powerful and optimistic sound. The music in general reflects a nice self engagement to nature and to the sky and a lovely escapism; watching a newborn star is connotation for new life, new beginnings after being tormented and exhausted. Starting from the second minute, the atmosphere of the music turned to deeper one. We have darkened riffs with brutal vocals as a tone of struggle, and strength .

The combination between clean and brutal vocals as a mixture between 2 different modes and psychological cases between the good, optimistic, and cheerful one to another hard, strong, darkened one. In 3:27 we have a very good solo then we have another atmospheric interlude as the sounds of space. Actually, the track in general is very interesting one. 2 notes I want to mention them that the lyrics carried a nice ode to nature as mentioning the beauty of sky, stars and the world. The idea of escapism to the purity of nature, to reconnect the human soul, and to face the ugliness of the universe. Another thing, the lyrics carried an allusion from the bible as the idea of the darkness division from the light, it was mentioned in the Old Testament. So, the track carried a sense of morality and optimism.

Finally, I liked the thoughts of Paul Martin in composing and reviving the magic of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock and how he make use of Amr Medhat’s vocals in great sense. Actually both of them create a good sense of cooperation and music passion.
