newcomer rauli v slays on the anthemic alt metal “can’t feel”

August 13, 2021

There are few things better in the world than when you hear a new artist that just stops you dead in your tracks. The debut single from alt metal singer Rauli V takes the best elements of the scene and catapults them into new heights with an assist from the always great Alireza. It’s huge but earnest, heavy but still fun. “Can’t Feel” is most of all a compelling showcase for Rauli V’s raw voice, soaring and charismatic, equally at home over heavy guitars and programmed drums.

Rauli V’s musical background pulls equal parts from his roots in Santo Domingo and upbringing in the DC/Baltimore area, describing his mission statement to “remind the world that Dominicans can head bang too.” The result is one of the most fully formed debuts in metal’s recent memory. It’s pretty rare that you get in on the ground floor of an artist who is clearly destined for big things. Get in with Rauli V now while you can still afford to see him perform live.
