This one took two listens. I felt there wasn’t enough said after the first time around so I spent the second one filling out the parts I thought were lacking the most. The result is something that’s not necessarily good, but it feels informative. Sort of a mix of things, maybe.
Kayo Dot’s “Blasphemy: A Prophecy” is from Blasphemy.
I hope you enjoy.
Rhythm throbs whilst other sounds dance upon it in a steady, specific fashion. Pointed vocals enter and keep their phrases clear whilst sound shifts underneath. Tension comes forward as does a sense of despair; it’s a bleak and cold space the sounds inhabit, and it’s not long before there is a sense of alignment in them and the vocals before everything pushes outward.
The beat grows and the sounds seem to rise up and draw into themselves. Melody comes more to the forefront and emotion weighs heavy. There’s a need for release and tension grows as guitar rolls and flows on whilst letting out light flickers. It seems like everything is going to burst, but at the high point everything pulls back.
A brief few moments and the vocals return and the sounds continue their dance with each other. The tension also finds itself diminished but it continues on and atmosphere reigns. However, it reigns not for long and on a final few words the song ends.
