Release: 2017 (re-released 2018)
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Clean and crisp melancholy riffing, that is very new-wave/post-punk influenced, use of powerful experimentation of different moods, tempos, melodic parts, progressive/aggressive, giving the riffage an overall of dark atmosphere feel. with ravaging pickings of thick bass
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Melt’s lead (female) vocalist is unusual and unique, the listener will be hypnotized by her powerful shouting, spiritual chanting, gruff vocals while embracing the reminiscent hateful attitude/vocal style of early-punk rock and Siouxsie Sioux
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: A mixture of simple slow beats, hard, raw, anthem fuelled and full of aggression….
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Melt opens the album into unknown dark territory…
when you first hear those powerful beauteous cords of the guitar and the spiritual chanting vocals at the beginning, one is hypnotised and drawn into the music…. Then the aggressive of the music and vocals drags you further into their dark musical world. With only eight tracks of over thirty-four minutes of a realm of make-belief, mixture imaginary & English language, progressive/aggressive music, while embracing other musical influences/elements and sound efforts and disconnecting the listener (from the real world) at the same time.
*** The album & music is so powerful and dark *** impressive of melancholy & dark atmosphere*** *** ***breathtaking awe-inspiring from start to finish ***
A progressive rock act
that will inhibit your spiritual soul of
melancholy, powerful, dark & progression music
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork shows a dark shadow walking through a tunnel or some sort – giving the impression of ‘entering a world of a dark imaginary, mystery, nightmare-ish realm’!
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The must part that stands out for me was the vocals and the whole album
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none !!!
