Through the subconscious mind of recording artist Mauricio Arrue, his electronically-infused Dark Rock project Forsaken Garden touches on an authentic sound that is ominously haunting and viscerally thought-provoking in his anchor single “Fruitful Dilemma”.
First thing I noticed about this track was Mauricio’s baritone-ranged voice having a stark reminiscence to Rock legend Peter Steele, late bassist/vocalist of Type-O-Negative. And that is something gifted and scarce. Delving into the song as the duration plays out, the ominous electronic drums really adds to the song’s mystery and really brings out the artistic merit that Mauricio Arrue brings to the forefront. His diligent vocal presence enters the measures in whispers and sets a dark tone that is captivatingly real and atmospherically vital. The indie component is a factor of this track and is complimented by the authentic production value that is at the helm throughout each measure. It tells a story that is realistic and entices the listener to dive deeper into this song to investigate its meaning. The result is a rabbit hole of Mauricio’s musicianship factors which come to the fold in a buildup that is edge-of-your-seat from the second it starts.
This song is over six minutes long and never wavers from its very effective signature sound. It is doused with authenticity and truly sticks to your core from its realistic nature. It also brings forth an edge of industrial vibes that parallel the overall structure. If this is your first time hearing Forsaken Garden, prepare for a rollercoaster of emotions. Mauricio Arrue’s stylization leads you to an ominous aura and this track will definitely entice you to look further into his discography and career overall. “Fruitful Dilemma” is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms.
