With very poetic melodies, Transient Life, despite being very brief, is an interesting record, that breaks and transforms some elements of post metal. The first track, Transient Life I: Ineptitude, has aggressive lines of guitar, that compels the other elements of the song to just follow its abrasive rush, in a relentless bewilderment that explores the elements, leaving behind them a curious beauty, intertwined in a goal of illusive sonorous devices, all set in a second place, regarding the primary elements. Interestingly, while the vocals are placed at an unusual lower tone, the guitar and the other instruments are always inserted in a precise confluence of rhythms, at the forefront of a clear sound.
With brief, but very interesting melodies, Transient Life juxtaposes elements in a soundscape of tormented beauty. Set primarily in the melancholic onset of a sentimental ingenuity, this work really evaluates in a more melodic pattern the very own values of traditional post metal elements, arranged in a very peculiar pattern of musical sensibility. With a visible potential to please all the enthusiasts of the genre, the briefness of the record, while being impossible to make the listener feel bored, with such an interesting melodic and unexpected approach, highlighting so beautifully its dark melancholic tones, also makes you want more of it, leaving you curious in what concerns the style of this artist.
Sincerely, despite its brevity, Transient Life, by Sebastian Crugley, is an interesting record. Its inserted in that unexpected, pure and almost undefined genre that certainly will give a lot of post metal enthusiasts that curious element that only very unusual works are able to introduce to the heart of the listeners, fulfilled in an artistic principle that mesmerizes, involves, revolves and captivates the heart.
