Leon Seti has just released his new single titled ‘Hell’. Hell means something different to whoever you ask. Whether it be damnation or paying for everything one’s done in life. But one thing is for sure; Leon Seti may have recorded a soundtrack fit for hell. I mean this knowing that the song does not sound evil in any way shape or form. What it does sound is disparate. There is no comparison. And that, to me, is what hell is. The unknown. I may be different but so be it. This song is the soundtrack to the unknown. Partly frightening, partly dark, stark and alone. ‘Hell’ perfectly captures that and more in me as a musician and around me as a listener. This is the sign of greatness recorded in music. Where you can feel and get emotions from said music, whether good, bad, or indifferent. That is what makes a beautiful song.
Leon Seti drops ‘Hell’ today (January 24, 2020).
According to Italian poet Dante Aligheri, one must receive the opposite punishment for every sin committed in life. But what if you enjoy pain and masochism, would you end up in a hell of kindness? Fresh off the success of album Cobalt earlier this year, Leon Seti returns with a brand new single and it’s the banger he always hoped to write. “Hell” brings raw beats, limited instrumentals, and intense vocals effects to paint Seti’s distorted, masochistic version of hell.
