Laika, Blood Rust and The End is coming, we'll take it from here – Buddha Sentenza gives birth to a true and genuine masterpiece, delivering a very wonderful instrumental sound, that really recues all the essence and all the integrity concentrated within the genre. With amazing rhythms, reinstated melodies, poetic harmonies and a lucid measurement of sound vibrations converging into spectacular passages of sensibility, reliability, lust and dust, Semaphora is a free-flowing styled album, that manages to gives lessons to our spirit, without losing the embrace of its refined predisposition to technique.
With each track consolidating an atmosphere of its own, being all of them very different to one another, Semaphora is a complete album, filled with concrete places allured at the cornerstone of rhythmic dissonances, envisioned by the strength of colorful passages, adorned by vibrant melodies, and a desire to go beyond. An excellent reference to the stoner rock and psychedelic genres, especially in the modern context, Semaphora is filled with outstanding qualities, and a presence that redefines the vastness upon which the melodies play all along within the songs. Undoubtedly, Semaphora certainly can be regarded as one of the best albums of the genre to be released in 2016.
Submerging the listener into a vast range of almost surrealist pieces of sound, this album will play with your feelings, and will drag away your emotions, towards a more dysfunctional subjective line of thought. Nonetheless, you will feel constantly mesmerized by the true expansion of sound within the space that relies beyond your own perceptions, limitless in the way it captivates your soul towards a more insinuative understanding of the style in progress, dragged into the inner collisions of the sound by the contrast of groundbreaking imperative nuances.
Motivated by a precision that never expects the sound to be preordained, although it manages to be as free as the wind, these six tracks on Semaphora aligns the soul of the rhythm with the intensity of the melody. While this is an album that will relax you as much as leave you enthusiastic, the completeness that propels the record to function in an axis of true sagacity reconciles the harmonies of an old tradition with the powerful creativity of a genuinely conceived work of art. And a marvelous result like this one, heard on Semaphora, is something rare to achieve.
