Catchy hooks and a wavy bassline do a great job of delivering this melody’s passionate vocals. Reverb plays an important role here, and is used with great skill both on the vocals and for building some monolithic bass constructions towards the end of the song.
Solid beat and energizing soundscapes power this mental dancefloor gem. This goes out to powerful new beginnings and amazing journeys. Take that first step, the adventure begins now.
Replay-abuse warning. Weaving a deep bass line with reverbed synths, it’s hard to stay still when stuff like this is blasting from the speakers. Get ready for take-off!
Here’s a strong, neo-folk pack of energy straight outta Valhalla. I don’t know what’s the name of the female singer, but her chanting is a perfect match for the solemn male choirs. A piece to march on through “bad” weather.
This original composition showcases a unique fusion between air instruments and electronic orchestration. It is Digitonal’s trademark sound, coming from one of the earliest releases of this ambient, neo-classical project.
This melody builds around a male sample (which says something in a language not known to me), combining synthetized guitars with echoing keyboards and dripping percussion. It is a journey song with many soundscapes; psybient at its finest.
In Norse mythology, Ginnungagap (“gaping abyss”, “yawning void”) is the primordial void, mentioned in the Gylfaginning, the Eddaic text recording Norse cosmogony.
Well, for a song about the primordial void, this one is pretty delicate and happy. The metalhead in me says that a song called so would have worked better from the pagan black metal scene. But then my spiritual side interjects and says: “but who says the void is dark, or violent?”. Indeed, Eastern philosophies such as Buddhism see the void in a much more mature way.
The metalhead in me is wrong and this song is a beautiful celebration of the importance of the primordial void. Leave your senses behind, save perhaps for hearing and let this song show you.
A profoundly moving song, Bliss soothes the tired mind and calms the restless soul. Peaceful music surrounds healing voices – a melody worthy of a life’s soundtrack.
I haven’t come across too many covers of Pink Floyd songs, probably because they’re too damn perfect to begin with. But Swedish renegades Clawfinger did the impossible. Not only did the band pick one of Pink Floyd’s most beloved songs to cover. They actually made it work! Of course, I can’t say that it sounds better than the original, but that wasn’t the point anyway. The point of a cover is to reinterpret, and wow was it reinterpreted! Just listen to those guitars dig into it! Just listen to that choir/duet! Amazing!
Guitars can cut like a razor, explode like a volcano and smash like a meteor. But guitars can also soothe like a summer breeze, cure like a Medicine and build enthralling soundscapes. This song is a prime example of the latter. It’s a gentle caress for a busy mind.
