"Weight of The World" by Crown The Empire
Written by: Lexie
On July 12, Crown The Empire released a new track to their fans from their upcoming album "Retrograde," entitled "Weight of the World," via Rise Records. Though fans have come forward with mixed feelings toward this new song, the majority are embracing Crown the Empire's new direction in sound. This song has elements of today's mainstream rock, fusing upbeat instrumentals, a catchy chorus, edgy vocals, and electronic components. One common criticism of "Weight of the World" is that the song is not as heavy as Capture the Crown's previous work, and while this is certainly evident, it is not done without taste -- this new direction seems to have potential.
This song has energetic instrumentals, and vocals that are packed with conviction. Audiences will be able to feel the punch of the lyrics, as they are fueled by frustration and defiance. As a whole, I would rate this song a 7 out of 10.
