Suzy named Number 7 in Metal Babe Mayhem's Top 10 for 2019
Ten For the Top of Twenty-Nineteen
The Best New Songs of Twenty-Nineteen
By Boris Lee
Holy sh*t! Another year speared into historical entry… Goldberg style! Another decade done! It seems as I level up in life (or as the misinformed refer to it as ‘Getting Old’), I find myself wondering where the time has gone. What happened? What did I do? Did I achieve anything positive and productive during our planet’s last revolution round the sun?
Twenty-nineteen answered me by pointing at a published book that helped spark a publishing opportunity for twenty-twenty, a book signing and other literary adventures. Twenty-nineteen then pointed at other significant personal and creative moves forward I made. Twenty-nineteen brought some of the most creative and beautiful people into my life, some of which I have had the privilege to write about and collaborate with. Finally, twenty-nineteen pointed me towards the Metal Babe, Alison Masson, and the opportunity she brought me with the return of my column, Symptom of the Metalverse. Twenty-nineteen was arguably the best of my forty-five-years breathing.
With twenty-nineteen being my best, with my achieving legitimacy as an author and journalist, I felt it befitting to jump on the ‘Best of the Year’ train and publish my own list to close out the year. (I know about the decade ending list publishing everywhere, but hey… I’m just getting the ball rolling.)
Rather than do a typical ‘Best of’ album list, I decided to do a ‘Top Ten Songs’ list. These are songs that I came across due to album reviews or artist interviews for Symptom of the Metalverse during the past year. To make the list, the music had to be new, original, and released in twenty-nineteen. No re-released materials or cover songs. This narrowed my field of source material. That being said, honorable mentions to Nytrate and The Prophets of Addiction. Let’s raise horns, bang heads and get the pit rolling as we mosh into the…
… Symptom of the Metalverse Top Ten Songs of Twenty-Nineteen.
7- Suzy– Tomorrow. Self titled release.
Suzy Wilson is a pleasant surprise creatively. At first I was not a fan of the music. Sorry, I wasn’t. However, I listened to the album several times and realized what I disliked about the album had nothing to do with the music. The music was damn good. Suzy is talented and created music with some feeling to it. Anyone who is paying attention knows I say music needs FEELING and to BREATHE. Suzy’s music does this, and the standout song doing so is “Tomorrow.” When I wrote my review of Suzy’s self-titled album, I became a fan and have never looked back since. I look forward to what tomorrow brings Suzy in twenty-twenty.
“Tomorrow is a tour de force rock anthem about getting through life’s challenges. The theme of the song is a classic tale of looking past today’s darkness and to the fruitful potential of a better tomorrow. One part of modern feeling guitars, one part strong drumming, and one part smooth vocal work, makes for a modern song with a true to form rock formula at its foundation.” ~Boris Lee, Tomorrow is a Road To Success
