The background to Summer Effect is that they are an Indonesian group, which for this album wanted to take things to smoother vibrations.
However, when you think things are nicely quiet you get awoken to blistering raised sounds, which extracted the depths of the energic fire within our souls.
The tracks on Afterlife are instrumental so when you listen to each instrumental composition, you just have to let go and start to build a visual picture of what Summer Effect are conveying to you – the listener.
The overall assumption combining each of the track titles together is how a person is perceived by others in life, and how they try-to-fit – into the world and people around them.
One of the best rules is just to be you, regardless of what others think of you!
So, Afterlife being the last track, sounds like a new beginning after all of the commotion that builds-up in a lifetime.
Arcade Messiah certainly has a powerful message without uttering a word, let alone sing a multitudes of words – in their third instrumental album III.
The music is powerful heavy to hard rock and the themes are of destruction to our earth, which by going by the name of the group equates to the ‘arcade’ element of our world and lives. Though together with ‘Messiah’ makes it quite scary and sinisterism could enter the fray.
The list of tracks makes sense as you enter a journey of explosive power with Revolver and then you’re bombarded further and have to make sure you’re not overrun in Citadel.
Then if you think the intensity is still going for maximum overload you are blessed with Deliverance, which is a very mellow and soft melodic piece of music to start of with! Things get heated and tries to calm-down midway but doesn’t really. It is if their is a battle within the world or even within ourselves and the mindful electrical waves never seem to want calmness.
Life Clock seems to continue the theme of life and you get periods within the composition of a ‘tick-tock’ lull, but then as life gets upset the music kicks-off again.
The heaviest track on III is Black Tree. This track is full of heavy metal guitar work that even among the dampened chords being played are thunderous doom and darkness.
Once again entering a period of softness and more of a tranquil tune is the last track Sanctuary. The music is more involved and the drumming is busy until the end.
Glasgow Coma Scale new album Enter Oblivion has a wide stereo spectrum to the seven instrumental tracks.
The background to this latest release is interesting as parts of the album were recorded some time ago and have formed the basic foundation for new compositions and ideas to enhance and develop this album as a whole.
Glasgow Coma Scale have made this album very complete and when you listen to the tracks they sound fresh and nothing sounds out of place, which is hard to do both musically and sonically if using material recorded some time ago.
What really hooks you is the melody of each track – some with heavy rock guitars, others with jangly soft pop guitars; but the greatest point to really pull this album apart from most music out there, are the pieces of sounds that move in synchronisation with the guitars that really adds that special finesse quality to each track.
There are not many albums that grip you on the first listen as what Glasgow Coma Scale have produced in Enter Oblivion.
