Encephalon – Psychogenesis (2015) – Review / Dissectional

Encephalon – Psychogenesis (2015) Psychogenesis Zero I like albums that take me on an adventure of sorts, to another world. These aren't just singles, this is definitely a cohesive album.

Influences on each track are diverse - which is what separates it all for me, through the multitude of influence you have something original and definitively Encephalon. We descend spiraling into a new setting, dark, cinematic, smashing idiosyncratically, hammering new time signatures on an acoustic drum set. There are thunderous sawtooth synths that pulsate and morph along to the rhythm. There’s a militant quality to it. A futuristic landscape.

Television. It's got the attention of millions as does the great media companies of the internet. Television provide you with a seemingly great amount of choice – hundreds of channels.
