An established artist with years of experience, Collin Stanley is an inspirational US-based singer-songwriter defying all genres with his heavy, heartfelt sound. During his younger years he grew up listening to The Stooges, Led Zeppelin, Bowie, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple insinuating that his music would be hard and heavy – we aren’t too far off. His most recent solo project falls in line with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Ty Seagall and Royal Blood. Before we take a look at ‘Gone Through Hell’, let’s take a deeper look at this talented musician.
Working with industry professionals like Grammy/Oscar-winning producer Jeff Bass, Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels, Collin has honed his sound over the years to create a boundary-breaking sonic experience. He has performed at various venues from Detroit to New York, showing a deep commitment to his local scene promoting the sound of local artists, and continues to reach people on a personal level. As a solo artist, Collin broke onto the scene with “enormous punch and shake the walls” music in 2020 closing with a cover of Billy Idol’s ‘Rebel Yell’. Now, let’s take the plunge and discuss ‘Gone Through Hell’.
Showing he is a force to be reckoned with, Collin’s ‘Gone Through Hell’ is hard, heavy and energetic. Punching you directly in the face, this hard rock meets alternative rock tune is powerful with dynamic guitars and bold vocals. The screeching guitars combine with pounding drums to create a truly earthshattering few minutes of noise. If you aren’t prepared for something outstandingly rock, then don’t listen to this track.
The sonic representation of inner turmoil, ‘Gone Through Hell’ is an intense experience looking at all people have endured during the Covid-19 pandemic. Distorted and filled with urgency, this new single has an aggressive quality to its melody and lyrics; however, while there is aggressiveness the track is also quite sincere and heartfelt. Teetering on the line between agitation and mature sophistication, ‘Gone Through Hell’ will easily have you headbanging then leave you gasping for breath.
