Redshift: Spa and music!              

Redshift - Cacalysme

The English town Bath was founded in connection with a Roman spa, and its name reflects this. It is still bathing in the town of Bath, but now maybe there is some music made from musicians from Bath? British prog metal band Redshift from Bath released their debut album Cataclysm. The album was recorded in Axe and Trap Studios, mixed by Ben Turner, and mastered by Jamie King. Redshift are among others influenced by Between The Buried And Me, Poeth, Rush and Dream Theater. The track Invasion has nice synth solos and many heavy riffs and complex guitars. There are alternatition between harsh vocal and clean vocal. The song is coherent and tight and toggle between a lush rhythmic vibe.

The musicians in Redshift are very talented and in addition obviously ambitious, and the music is worth checking out for anyone with a taste for adventure. Their ambition is huge and not what you expect for a debut album, and there are a fair amount of progressive elements throughout Cataclysm. The epic track May Fate Rest Upon You 14.15 showcases a band with many creative ideas. The synths is close to a soundtrack with a clear Halloween sounds in the beginning, and that sound come back in the end of the song. The song has a nice section with very beautiful piano playing and a ballad felling. The song has some similarity with Between the Buried and me, but even though this is definitively done in Redshift’s way! We also have some section with growling vocals, and great build up where the guitars plays a prominent role.

A middle objection is that the songwriting is a bit unfocused from time to time. The talents are there, but the band brings along music they could easily drop. The production is really good except the vocals are not easy to hear. This means that it is difficult to find out what the concept is about. Redshift was formed in 2017 at Somerset, England by Liam Fear (Vocals, Bass, Keyboards), Joshua Boniface (Guitar) and Jack Camp (Drums).

Om Ulf Backstrøm (2868 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
