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. This record does it for me. It serves it in various styles or genres but still with a core of electro-industrial and in ways that are compelling and unique unto itself. 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.
