Still shot of Terry Blade’s Video for “The Last Macbeth”

Hot off the press, we are coming at you with another Writer’s Choice special. And we are more than thrilled to bring back our man Terry Blade with an exclusive review for his hot single “The Last Macbeth”.

Accompanied by an artistically crafted black and white music video, this bouncy track has the catchiness of the 80s and the witty charm of today’s more modern Hip Hop sensibilities in all the right places. Encompassing his versatile bar structures that showcase his rhythmic flow and clever lyrical punches, Blade hits the ground running from the very first verse and carries a torch to ignite a fire throughout the directive path of this track. His rhyming techniques have the same signatures from some of his other tracks, maintaining a stylization that is uniquely multifaceted. And always comes up for air to make sure his delivery is charismatic, methodical and smoothly consistent.

This song definitely has the staying power that a lot of 90s Hip Hop bangers brought to the table. The lyrics easily resonate with any fan of the genre and conducts a presence of command that keeps the listener attentive, interested and coming back to see what else this artist comes up with. Terry Blade is a rapper of anthems, making his songs more about the power of its individuality rather than a collection of below par level tracks. You can tell a high esteem is in his music, and that his talent is showcased in every angle most effectively. This is an absolute must-listen for 2020.

Exclusive Review: Terry Blade – “Misery” EP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Hailing from the cityscape of Chicago, artist/singer Terry Blade brings a fresh new voice for today’s new generation in the form of many tasteful genre blends. His debut album ‘Misery’ is not only a gem, but an array of emotions especially when listened in headphones. It’s a journey and experience that really encompasses his craft and ultimately raises the bar for solo artists of his caliber, and this 6-track record is direct proof.

Touching on personal and realistic themes of sexuality, sensuality and mental health, Terry‘s baritone voice is a very distinctive and effective approach to the ambient song structures and lyrical content in every measure. With a dynamic vocal style reminiscent to industry greats like Sam Smith, opening acoustic track “The Unloveable” is a powerful start to this record and really captures Terry‘s versatility in both vocal melodies and precision. Meanwhile “The Mentally Ill” provides a subtle and atmospheric beat that showcases different angles of Terry‘s vocal ability as well as 2-3 part multifaceted harmonies. “The Widow” is a beautiful piano-driven song with several soothing vocal layers that really draw you into the song and a signature R&B sound that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; hinting at elements of 90s and today’s more recent chart topping figures among the genre.

Closing track “Tick Tock (The Lonely)” has a very clever doo-wop style intro that leads into a very smooth bass-driven melody with electronic touches that really delves into a deep range of emotional layers. This song, just like the others, is the type of song you can feel from both the production style and vocal content equally. Its subtlety is at times mysterious but always leads you to a place that gets you to connect with Terry Blade on that next level you seldom hear with other artists. And that’s what makes ‘Misery’ so effective – its power to bring you to a place of emotion and artistic merit, which shines brightly through every song via Terry‘s voice. This is an album that needs to be heard to be believed. It’s currently available online and all music streaming outlets.
