Overall Impression: Hermetic Seals bears an incredibly original and undeniably authentic sound - and their original work, Chasing The Moon, is bursting with entrancing musicality! Lush instrumental soundscapes support dense vocal harmonies and evocatively reflective lyricism to make Chasing The Moon a song worth losing yourself in, and the musical prowess of Richard Fronapfel is more than enough to warrant a replay or ten! Strongest Point(s): Amazing musicianship! Sincerely, there's a competence and artisanship to the sounds and structures of this song that set it apart. Wonderful vocal deliveries, perfectly blending the dynamic contrasts with just the right amount of energy to keep listener's attention. Excellent sound-scaping, with the atmospheric effects really filling out the space. Great harmonies, and a memorable melody. This is stellar songwriting!
