Bjørn BARock has created a legacy for himself with these experimentations in music. With compositions that transcend ambient expressions to in-depth introspections in rock, pop, and metal-there is very less this man has not explored. With his full length album, he wishes to share the narrative with us. This is Sturm aufs Paradies.
The opening single itself will leave you in awe. Echoing whispers with the instrumentals draw you into the song, while rock insertions are a regular occurrence. He knows how to flick the switch of the genre in a second. You could see the song be immensely popular in front of a packed crowd.
Memento Mori brings a post-grunge rock experience. BARock preps you for something exciting, a song that screams action and aggression. After the pandemic, this artist has continued this passion project as a one-man spearhead, which makes this all the more interesting. He uses silence for building tension, just like a filmmaker would. The tones he has got are apt and accurate. They create the desired effect, and his lyrics are a meditation on his observations.
A smorgasbord of genres
Stell mir keine Fragen has those punk beginnings. This makes sense, he says, how the baroque is something he is fascinated by. It is this kind of dedication to learning the makings of a genre and mastering it that make him such an admirable multi-instrumentalist. Passionate and verbose, he ensures the music is felt the way he would want it experienced. Überwinde jede Mauer continues this red-hot punk energy, and it is fascinating and entertaining to listen to.
If anything is a condolence, it is how BARock has made this an outlet of his personality. It is evident he has made music a passionate relationship he keeps returning to. With each song, he solidifies his style, and explores more, every time. Raus in die Freiheit had a whole different set of tones, and this artist has found a vessel within which he can continue his diaries.
Meine Kleine, grosse Welt has a texture of a prog–rock ballad. BARock creates exactly that feel with his melody and tones he uses. I also admire his vocal recording style, it seems like he is singing to you, as compared to a stadium or hall feel. It is unique, fascinating to see such a powerhouse of a talent kicking open the doors of expectation like this. Alles nicht so leicht opens with a thunderous drum lick, while there are trap beats as part of the song. You will never hear textures like this in many artists songs, for they wouldn’t dare to explore.
This would be great in the 2001 German movie The Experiment. There are so many songs and styles that BARock could be featured in any without doubt. Listen to his album above and make sure you follow this talented songwriter for more!
