G.O.A.T by Polyphia proves why they are the GOAT for real!!

Since its inception in 2010, Polyphia has been in the limelight as they bring a different spin to the already well-developed and experimental genre of progressive rock. They are known for implementing virtuosic instrumental parts along with different styles and genres of music. They achieved their fandom after the Guitar cover of their song "Impassion" became a viral hit on YouTube. Since they got thrown into the mainstream of progressive rock, they have collaborated with notable acts such as "Periphery" and "August Burns Red". The name "Polyphia" comes from the Musical term "Polyphony" which means "Music whose texture is defined by the interweaving of several melodic lines" said Tim Henson, Lead Guitarist of Polyphia, in an interview.


G.O.A.T. has an overall darker vibe to it. The guitar tones are very crisp and twangy. Along with the virtuosic playing that the fans are pretty familiar with by now, Polyphia surpassed their arrangement skills with the use of digital synths in this track. The bells that can be heard throughout the song give it its creepy vibe and are going to be stuck in your mind for a while! The drums and bass are at their peak. Clay Aeschliman has put in astoundingly detailed and intricate rhythms throughout the track making no single phrase as same. The bassline is complimenting the rhythm without skipping a beat. G.O.A.T. has to be the GOAT of the entire Polyphia discography.
