Review Summary: Very dark Dubstep tangled up with powerful melodies1 of 3 thought this review was well written
Following up his starting point, "My Demons", Distance leads on with the same path as the material found there. However for this release, prominent Dark Ambient influences are found on this. The mysterious beats, and chaotic rhythms are nothing to joke about. With "My Demons", it just does not match Repercussions synergistic traits.
All for the grooves soaked in with thunderous roars of ambient eating away as the drums and hits move on. That right there, is a submerged spot lurking around. Sometimes the nasally and nasty basslines just can't match up to the distinctive drum beats taking you away on a journey of angst. That's not saying the album is awkward or mismatched, everything is somehow placed in the correct position to avoid distaste or awkwardness. The heaviness of the Dubstep feel is definitively found here. "Skeleton Grin" offers a hefty drum pattern, pounding away to a vile and extremely down tuned bass. The orchestra effect is found here too. "Headstrung" is a more lighter and sensational tune given away to a shaky feel entwined with a nasty snare. All paired up with each other. An Indian/Middle Eastern influence is reminiscing, with the vibrant guitars. "Koncrete" settles in as a spicy and heavily influenced ambient drear. The down tuned bassline is found here too. "Sending Chills" is all about sound, submerging with the hits and defective whiny organ, placed with a dark and creepy space melody. "Radical" has beautiful and a grim like effect all done by a crazy buzz noise giving away.
The intention on the deep roar of basslines is a plus on here. The grime sequences really give this album a positive, ceiling its own type of ordeal. The weird set aquatic like beats add on to the atmosphere. The city life gives this album feels of the seemingly unknown, and what is up ahead. As in the atmospheric synths, and percussion sects tear up the night.
In the territory of Dubstep, this album places upward and strong. The overall dark and nightlife feel is a grab on. Some of the material on here might be a mixed bag for some. The only real issue was some of the song weren't as distinctive as the others. Some felt sort of misplaced, and just didn't set the scene. A few songs found to be a little repetitive and dragged on for an extended amount of time, without giving much filling space to add more. But overall, this album is one of a kind. You have the dubstep feel and the Dark Ambient to violently add to the placement. I highly recommend this album and it's very accessible to anyone a fan of Electronic.
