From Chattanooga, TN we have “Every Word A Prophecy”. LIstening to this album, I was literally blown away. These guys obviously know what they’re doing with their music. Over the past 2 years I’ve taken an interest in politics and reading through the lyrics, I knew exactly what they were talking about. It’s easy for anyone to interpret if you’re actually paying attention to the world around us. I suggest anyone listening to their music to read along with the lyrics.
Now back to the music, the band obviously has a great understanding of music composition, execution and technicality. The album starts with a 1 minute intro and I’m glad they did. Personally, I love it when bands add intro’s and exit’s, it creates more of a story for me. The following song “Legislation: A Lonesome Standard” was awesome to say the least. I liked the polyrhythm between the drummer and guitarist, the vocals are amazing, LOVE his voice and I’m telling you, these guys now how to write music. Everything is placed perfectly and played beautifully.
Next in line is “Decontamination: No One Lives” and “Globalization: All Nations Collapse”. Both songs have a great intro, I love that they really take advantage of their duets in different octaves, it was interesting. The off beat rhythm’s were on time and in perfect placement. There was a nice upbeat moment that was really cool, smart move. There were a little things here and there. For example, in “Decontamination” I would have preferred the featured artist to sing more on his on, the different styles were good together. Also, in “Globalization” there was a small section in the 40-48 second piece where I wish they could have include bass but other than that, amazing songs.
“Stabilization” was probably my favorite song. I only had one small issue, there were short moments where the music was overpowering the vocals so I couldn’t here him too well. Now, what I really loved about this song was the technicality performed. This song in particular actually reminded me of the song “Fractal Effect” from After The Burial.
Finally, the last couple of songs, including the exit, are the cherry on top of the damn ice cream. The intro to “Location” was sweet, reminded me of some of Evan Brewer’s solo work. The technical work in their music is amazing, I really enjoyed listening to this album, these guys are headed in the right direction, I can’t even believe they’re not signed yet. I recommend you to listen to this band if you’re a fan of After The Burial, I think they make a great match. I can’t wait for these guys to get bigger and when they do, they better be near cause their live shows look sick.
