Review: With breakthrough emotions, themes like the instrumental “Shattered” show a sentimental regret through melodic and melancholic lines, sometimes almost depressive. In this specific case, the piano and guitars are the brushes that paint this gloomy canvas in a short duration of three minutes, but there is still time and space to make the musician's inner mood very clear, as well as the technical aptitude through captivating leads and well-drawn soils.
Chris Maragoth releases his new Single "BEHIND THIS DOOR"
Magdeburg, Germany – On March 9, 2021 solo artist CHRIS MARAGOTH releases his new single called "BEHIND THIS DOOR" on all major streaming services, media stores and on Bandcamp. The music video will also be available on the same day on the official YouTube channel. "BEHIND THIS DOOR" is a Power Ballad that was actually written a few years ago after a very painful breakup, but it took a while until Chris felt ready to finish the song. He finally recorded "BEHIND THIS DOOR" during the Covid19-lockdown in end of 2020. As its origin suggests, the song is about a hard time after a relationship has ended. The song’s protagonist is facing the fact that the beloved one will not come back and is trying to move on. The phrase "when a door closes, a window opens" comes into the protagonist’s mind, but what is, if the protagonist is (still) loving the one who is behind this door? Although Chris has written the lyrics inspired by his own situation many years ago and is maintaining the vocals for this song, it is important for him to leave it open what gender the protagonist or the beloved one have, so that everyone can put themselves in their shoes.
