Essence of Mind - The Break Up!
Your Price: $15.99
Boosted by the enormous feedback generated by their challenging EP trilogy "Escape", "Hate" and "Wrong", and building up on their growing success received during their recent German tour with their neighbours & friends of APOPTYGMA BERZERK, Norway's ESSENCE OF MIND break it up in April 2015 with the hugely anticipated release of their 4th full length album...
"What was first intended to be an album dealing with human relations, existential questions and reflections of the time we live in, during the writing process, "The Break Up!" turned out to be my most personal album yet...", says Erlend Eilertsen. Built on a quite dark and melancholic recurrent atmospheric background, this new album sounds rather angry and harsh sometimes, but also still gives some tints of hope and progress...
Powerful, melodic, and electronic with a touch of massive industrial nu-metal and other intricate dance music elements such as drum’n’bass, EDM and dubstep, ESSENCE OF MIND do not only confirm with this new album the band's faultless production maturity, but also brings their unique sound style to the next level! They take a more modern pop-rock road with uptempo tracks like «Disturbing Situations», the club hit «Wrong», the pumping opener «No Place To Hide», the harder and highly melodic «Escape», the tortured and almost noir «Can’t Take It», up to the very emotional and melancholic pop sound of «Tear Apart»...
"The Break Up!" is a very poignant and highly dynamic album that gives the impression of having heard a hypnotic sound cocktail of the best elements from APOPTYGMA BERZERK (for the vocals), DEPECHE MODE (for the melodies), PRODIGY (for the modernity), "PENDULUM (for the sound dynamic) or yet LINKIN PARK (for the punchy attitude)...
This might be a "Break Up!", but the ESSENCE OF MIND journey continues, so stay tuned for some "after the break" new sonic adventures...
