With a unique flavor that customizes a symbiotic appeal between the music and the listener, notes of anguish, melancholy, freedom, sorrow and fear can be heard throughout the record, with sonorous swords of impressive highness cutting beyond the walls of reverberating rhythms, that allows the music to explore its own consciousness, in a very pure form, with an incredible degree of dissolute awareness. Without any fear of authenticity, some tracks are real pearls of electronic music, that masters the line between perfection and technique. An unexplainable underlying ground of dissident fascination flows below the surreal colors of some tracks, permeating in a record full of contrasts an interesting degree of unity, exceedingly sincere in this masterpiece’s monumental desire to overflow everything left unbound and isolated.
A fine interesting record, decently polished and produced, it has the potential to be a landmark on the “bizarre” electronic music genre, since it expands the vigorous intensity that already flourishes behind the scene. Deeply infatuated by a fearless line of experimentation, the colorful, fragmented and syntagmatic notes that constantly revolves the sound and recovers the rhythms over the fluctuating devices of the music gives this record a very unique branding of excellence and uniqueness, always above the ordinary. Tracks five, seven and eleven, Peeping Tom, Sound Of Violence and Death’s Door, respectively, defines and resumes precisely what I’m trying to say. Headcase is a severe case of a fundamental milestone for the genre. Bizarre, awkward, brilliant, different, and filled with sinister tones, without putting aside the sentimental tonality of a true work of art, Headcase, by Anodic8 is an astounding record. An essential piece for the most passionate, temperamental and peculiarly eccentric electro lovers out there.
With an exceedingly metallic undertone that diversifies the ambience on which the sound constantly redefines itself, Headcase is a glorifying album, that, besides being original, also aggregates an intelligent and highly appreciated legitimate identity on its sound, and pays a considerable and excellent tribute to its predecessors and influences. Bound to be a landmark, Headcase, by Anodic8 is an eccentric journey towards the other side of your own personality, and, upon hearing it, you will never feel – or be – the same. Totally worthwhile, as I used to say about good and awesome records, this is an album for all enthusiasts of electronic music to check it out. Right now.
