This work was apparently done by Texas-based Bryon Beaubien, host of Fireball20xl and the podcast Whachow.
Hearing this album in order: It’s like a Diary of A Madman to Blizzard of Ozz. Makes me regret that I didn’t review this sooner.
The opening track does it’s job as an attention grabber. Enjoyed the Tinkerman sound and eastern blend of Black Sands; amazing to pull this off with a strong sound albeit an electronic beat. This album is a compromise, moving more towards an electronic sound with some slight inputs of natural sound effects (i.e, EN), and some strand of synth here and there. For someone who’s a fan of this style of music, I heavily recommend this. Despite this, Beaubien has shown once again that his abilities in the studio are limitless, evident by the longer track listing. None of the songs are a repeat of the first or a cliff hanger of the next. There’s originality stapled on every track. The strongest on this tracklist are “Hyperion” for it’s fusion of several styles without sounding too messy and still appealing to the widest range of music lovers. The eerieness of “I am invincible” with the talent spill of the longest track “The Eye”; a 5 minute Eruption…
The name practically says it all. These songs truly are classics within this genre. I’m more of a fan of natural made music, but I give credit where credit is duw.
