Faced With Rage K Scope

Guitarist - - Music -

In­dus­trial prog­gers blaze new trails Reg­u­lar Guitarist con­trib­u­tor and God­sticks front­man Dar­ran Charles tells us, “With Faced with Rage, I wanted to con­tinue the same

heavy jour­ney that we be­gan with 2015’s

Emer­gence but this time oc­ca­sion­ally delve into more at­mo­spheric and tex­tu­ral sounds that we’d not pre­vi­ously ex­plored.” It’s a dark jour­ney, for sure, but the land­scape is a fas­ci­nat­ing one; con­stantly un­du­lat­ing with writhing, twist­ing gui­tar riffs and sub­ter­ra­ne­ous bass parts, held to­gether with Dar­ran’s dystopian lyrics. Shafts of light emerge with tracks like We Are Leav­ing, a widescreen bal­lad with a creep­ing melodic gui­tar solo. It’s an al­bum that is con­stantly in­trigu­ing with labyrinthine changes of pace and colour. We like it! [DM] Stand­out track: An­gry Con­cern For fans of: Dream The­ater, The Pineapple Thief
