Malakyte - Human Resonance
The album starts with a beautiful song entitled '7.8'. It's gobsmackingly gorgeous. Then all hell breaks lose with 'Embodiment'. Laggy and Dalton Quade Wilson just nail it on guitars. They are shredding it. it's sweet mana to your ears. Tommy Muz reminds me of Bobby Ellsworth. This song is killer. You just bang your head all the way through.
'Fall to Khaos' is another guitar laden song. It has a Metallica / Slayer vibe. It's wicked and heavy. L.G. and Trip Walker are a rhythm section force. 'Fall to Khaos' has so much power and low end. The heaviness is palpable. 'Flood of Flames' has some wicked jazzy bass riffs from Trip. Then it just explodes in a frenzied "I'm coming to get you, Barbara!" type of scene. I shot out of my seat and just head banging and circle pitted in my tiny Korean flat. My next door neighbour was not amused. Especially at 1:23 when I frakking cranked the bass wickedness up to ear bleeding levels! 'Flood of Flames' has so many what the fuck moments it's crazy!
'Inbetween Terminals' has this groove and feel that your body has felt before. But Malakyte adds something different, distinct to the mix that keeps you engaged and in love. It's another song that has this wild eyed uncontrollable movement to it. But underlying it all is ... HEAVY!!!! I really just want to scream bloody murder right now! That's how much 'Inbetween Terminals' gets into your head.
I could go on and describe the rest of Malakyte's "Human Resonance" to you. But I won't. I really really really want you to go buy this album!
