NOREiKA - At The Dark Side [Song Review]

Peter Noreika (NOREiKA) is a solo rock/folk music artist and songwriter coming from Akron, NY. Peter is no stranger to the rock music scene; Throughout the years he has been a guitarist for a number of Heavy Metal & Thrash bands. As the years went by Peter had to put his music career on hold in order to put the priorities of life first. That being his family and job. Coming close to giving up on his music career all together, Peter found a new inspiration, his four year old son, who reignited his passion. Since that day, he is back to composing and producing, this time all independent. Of all the songs on his Soundcloud profile, I enjoyed “At The Dark Side” most of all.


“At The Dark Side” is a track that really makes you think and remember the past. The song reminded me of old friends and the paths that bring us apart. It was once all fun and games but as we all grow older, we tend to drift apart from the people we grew up with in order to pursue our own desires. This song is reminiscence of the good ole days, before life told us who we should be. "At The Dark Side" is well written, composed and preformed flawlessly. There is no lack in production either, this song is ready to rock your headphones.

If you have never imagined throwing your fists up at the heavenly, sonic winds in full heavy metal fashion to driving riffs manifested from the strings of an acoustic guitar, strap yourself in because you are about to get folk-ed up enough to bang your head too! Peter Noreika, not only embodies all that rocks but it's fine-crafted with the kind of cross-the-heart honesty that you'd expect from a seasoned storyteller with an optimistic sparkle in his road weary narrative. Over this trio of catchy songs, prepare to embark on a personal trip from starry-eyed childhood through the reckless abandon of adolescence and rise to make a stand! Listen to “At The Dark Side” below and be sure to show your support for this independent artist.

  19. I have listened to many songs over the past few months while writing articles for my online magazines and I have to say, this EP by far is the most amazing and easy to listen to album ever. It brought me back to when I was 40 years younger and actually enjoyed listening to great music. Randy Lockhart
