Nick Lent - everything

Upon listening to numerous concepts and ideas as the album progresses, themes of tranquility and chaos will eventually be deduced. The melodic passages, specifically, being heard in the album's former half with inclusions of uplifting riffs and its trance-like soundscape. The opener "City Untouched" being one of the best examples of this with angelic ambiance accompanied by soothing strums and echoing keys. As you might find yourself entranced in its essence, the context eventually comes into fruition as the record hits the ground running. Bouts of chaotic compositions appear in the mix while soaring riffs on tracks akin to "Shenanigans" continue the sonically upbeat theme. Accompanied by synths and powerful chords, the energetic passages reflect a positive outlook, however, there appears a turning point. What lies ahead is a much darker route in tone as the sound progressively becomes more aggressive.
