And it’s straight out of Brisbane and Adelaide in Australia that Alter Idem released its first EP.
Here we go for greasiness, a lot of greasiness with Paradoxical Design. Between guttural vocals and pig squeal, you’ll love it. Melting fastness and slowness, you will smash everyone’s face during live shows ! The sound slows down but is still enjoyable, and it’s far from the end! To be honest… we all love this massive bass sound! We continue with a great transition for the eponymous Fargment of Consciousness, an aggressive sound from the beginning with a very nice guitar solo! The band comes back to a slower but still effective part to bring a very catchy rhythm and finish with a lovely lead guitar. With one of the longest anguishing transitions, we go for Neural Adaptation and its explosive beginning. Gathered by double vocals, I can assure you that you’ll have rhythm in your blood thanks to this sound, then thanks to fast riffs. On this song, I noticed that the bass is spotlighted, and beware… to this huge break. We finish with And Unravel that offers a total change of mood followed by a pretty melody, but do not trust appearances, the band quickly come back to their roots for a huge sound.
It’s with a mesmerizing video that the first EP of Alter Idem falls upon us. Between fastness and greasiness, we’re sure that you’ll find your heart’s desire.
