The music on 'Beyond The Event Horizon' seems to combine typical post-rock with flashes of space rock and stoner rock, somewhere between Explosions In The Sky, Monkey3 and Zombi perhaps. In 'Unknown Void' the spacey synths remind me of bands like Ozric Tentacles or Hawkwind. To add to the excitement, there are quite a lot of distorted guitars, perfectly capable of pleased the metal minded people among us.
But wait, I'm not done talking about these synths yet. They add a lot of interesting elements to the music, certainly a tremendous psychedelic aspect. Tytus (keyboards) seems to have a background in space rock, krautrock. Either that or he has been listening to Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, a lot. I don't mind, not at all, adding stuff like this is what makes a band interesting. And this certainly is interesting.
Since we're talking about the bandmembers, Pawel (drums) sounds like a metalhead, often going berserk with the double bass drums and barely refraining himself from coming up with blast beats. That's not a bad thing either, who would like to bang his head in space, right? There are no blast beats on this album, but again, I don't mind. They would only devalue the immersive nature of the rest of the music.
Because yes, the music is pretty damn immersive. In all honesty, opener '4CE' didn't convince me that much but halfway through 'Sharper' I definitely was sold. The repetitive nature of this track is awesome and almost hypnotic. Besides, halfway through the title track, 'Event Horizon' I was pretty sure that I want to see these guys live. If the good people from Dunk festival read this review, I hope they take it as a hint.
Before I finish this writing, I have to mention the fact that 'Post Waltz' is exactly what the title predicts. Imagine a waltz, play it with a rock setting and you get a really nice tune. It adds a lot to the variation on the album, which is also a good thing. Hell, this whoàle album is a good thing, so check it out. You won't be disappointed.
