I Of The Storm - Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace (CD, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac

{PARAGRAPH}Psychotic Waltz's idea of simpler songs is still more technical, complex and creative than some of the biggest bands to come out in Even the Album) songs like "Shattered Eye" are not the sappy ballad that filled the airwaves, but a haunting melody mixing acoustic passages and flutes with heavy guitar riffs. It's actually quite stunning! I can't even think of many comparisons, except for possibly the Galactic Cowboysand that only in their creativity, aggressiveness and some of the vocal melodies. The instrumental at the end of the disc is hidden into track ten. This disc was recorded in at the world famous "Record Plant" in Los Angeles and mixed in Florida at the infamous Morrisound Studios, famous for putting out incredible discs by band like Death and Iced Earth. Psychotic Waltz' fourth and final studio album is a perfect blend of the band's first three albums. The music contained herein is a mixture of the groove of "Mosquito," the gothic heaviness of "Everflow," and the heavy technical songwriting of "Social Grace. To bad this was the last studio discs for these guys. The first half of this odds and sods disc is all instrumental. The band describes the first seven tracks as a soundtrack for reaching the higher spheres into narcotic dances. Drugs are stupid, but I can understand the musical interpretation here. The next two tracks are described as twisted metal riffs, melodic acoustic passages, dark harmonious winding solos and sci-fi synth programming. Excellent description. The music is quite good, especially tracks which are previews of Brian McAlpine's Darkstar 2 project. The whole first half of the disc sounds like the soundtrack to a spacey sci-fi film. After owning the disc for only a couple weeks, I have played it numerous times, which shows how infectious the music is. This is because it is masculine, but also in a sense feminine. Evidently, there is also a reference to Krishna dancing on bodies, because what else would one do with them in heavy metal? Indeed, that song, while still full of melancholy, is full of a different type; rather than helplessness, there are tinges of hope and, I suppose, humanity, which infuse the song with passion. And this seems the essential spirit of this album: humans must accept the fact that the world is independent of their wills, and yet nonetheless we have imagination and dreams, as it were our own worlds, and must embrace these. However, the corollary of this is that, if within the bare material world we are weak and helpless, a life spent focused on this is a life wasted. You don't want them to remember you for being materialistic, or something people will look down on. You want to leave a positive message with people so they can remember you for that. In the opener, ' This is, of course, a negative association; however, if the image of literally gambling with the devil actually appeals to you, just imagine that I was referring to the Helloween album. This is dark in a similar way to ' And the Devil Cried', perhaps even more so, but while that was sinister, this is a warning; the architects do not learn what they have built until it is too late. Again, people do things, but do not know what they are doing, and are not themselves the end of this creation, which forms its own end. However, the purpose of all of this darkness is to get a message across, the purpose of the helplessness and melancholy to present to us the harsh reality that we may accept it. The world is independent of your will, yet accept this and develop your soul until you do not have a will, not to be discreet. Psychotic Waltz aim not to preach and tell the audience what to do, not that there's anything wrong with that, but rather simply try to show them as well as tell them, and are always somewhat reliant on the power of their music to show what they mean. To accept the darkness is to accept the meaninglessness of the outlooks they condemn, notwithstanding which it need not mean that you are accepted, which is another album altogether and restricted to that. The album functions as a sort of non-Aristotelian purging, of drawing you into the darkness only to show that it's there and must be escaped, which does not follow the rules of formal logic. There is no feeling within humanity, and a hope for something better, both of which combine to give the human side of the album its aesthetic power as against the emotional effect of the other. And in showing this, the audience is encouraged to latch on to it, the last sign of humanity amongst the broken rubble and technocratic riffs, because of course that was their point as well. And, of course, the music is good enough that one will probably listen to it enough times for any intended message to sink in on some level, this is a purely scientific statement, but of course it stands to reason that a lack of feeling would be the only thing which could liberate humanity to think about things involvedly. It doesn't really grow on you, but one may notice things which makes it akin to a tree of life or into something good, which is an achievement to some extent, if less symbolic. To sum up, then, it is a good album and you should listen to it. If you could imagine a more technical but less triumphant Awaken the Guardian with a sprinkling of Aqualung tossed in, you'd have a good reference point for how this sounds. Psychotic Waltz are completely original though, being both heavier than Fates Warning by way of playing in lower tunings and less metal than them at the same time. This is because there are small elements of rock in the Waltz sound which further distinguishes them from the pure metal of early Fates. These rock elements come from Buddy Lackey's vocals mainly but also from the last name of one of the guitarists. I Remember, for example, is a total throwback to the '70s rock ballad, flute solo and all. A Psychotic Waltz, meanwhile, is almost pure prog rock. None of these are bad things as there's not a second of this album that I don't like, but it is a little disjointed. This, combined with it being an hour long, makes it imperfectly listenable. Playing progressive hippie metal as they termed their music they cover a lot of ground between the technical, jerking violence of. And the Devil Cried and the jazzy, heavy doom of Nothing. The foreboding Spiral Tower stands out as it's even more meaningful now, in the current state of the world, than it was back in Psychotic Waltz tend to drift towards the darker side of things when it comes to the observations they make. A Social Grace is drug-crazy in its foreshadowing. It is grudgingly polite to those material folks ignorant of what lies within and beyond. The subtle poetry of Buddy's lyrics tie in to the sinister play on the album cover. You can pray all you want and run as I Of The Storm - Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace (CD and as far as you can, but no one escapes judgement. Axemen Dan Rock and Brian McAlpin play off of each other, harmonizing everything, advancing on what had already been advanced upon. The always twinned leads they play are manic, abstract and all over the place, even in the verses. Riffs and acoustics are equally crazy. The riffs crush in changing time signatures and are thrashy in places. Then there's the clean guitar intros, like the ones that start Strange and Nothing for example, which build upon feelings of unease through intricacy. The rhythm section keeps pace as best it can with the short attention spans of Brian and Dan. Ward Evans provides sinuous bass and Norm Leggio's drums find the right balance between complexity and raw power as befits this music. This band gets almost to Watchtower's level of spastic skill. When the whole thing is topped off by the histrionic vocals of Buddy Lackey who sounds like a toned-down John Arch, the end result is boner-inducing for the jazz metal aficionado. Some fans say the sound on here is perfect for the style, and these leads are fucking fantastic, but the production could use more mid-range to cut through better. It's a little on the trebly side with the bass and mids drowned out in places. An example of where this hurts is Only in a Dream. On most stereo systems all you'll pick up from this song are Buddy's vox and those uplifting guitar harmonies. If you listen I Of The Storm - Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace (CD this song with headphones you'll pick up some killer heavy riffs under those harmonies. My favorite song from this band is I of the Storm, a song worthy of Awaken the Guardian with its mixture of searing, nasal vocals delivered in stratospheric octaves over top of head-caving-in, building-leveling guitar riffage. This song just walks into the room and destroys everything in its path. Do not consider yourself a metal fan, progressive or otherwise, if you don't instantly enjoy this song. Almost anybody gave the highest possible rating to the debut record of "Psychotic Waltz" and that's why I got intrigued by the band. As a fan of progressive rock and metal music I expected something outstanding here. In fact, the band really varies from one style to the other and proves their excellent skills, their multiple influences and their creativity several times on this entertaining record. The problem I have with the record is that the whole thing sounds like a compilation record rather than a coherent and well structured album. Their is so much brain inside this record that there is no place for a heart or a soul anymore. The album sounds rather faceless even though it is technically brilliant. The band convinces most when they are calm and minimalist and focus on a coherent and convincing structure. The amazing "I remember" that starts as a smooth ballad with some great folk influences and a dreamy flute solo is an example for a truly well done gem on this record. The bonus track "Only in a dreamy" gives us also a break from the harder metal stuff and has some jazz and lounge influences that create a truly magic atmosphere. On the other side, the band surprises us with weird experiments. The bonus track "Successor" is I Of The Storm - Psychotic Waltz - A Social Grace (CD great space metal track with a gripping and original atmosphere. The third and last bonus track "Spiral tower" is another big highlight with its noisy sound and progressive ideas. The album closer "Nothing" has a very dark doom atmosphere with nice atmospheric sound effects and truly goes nowehere in the end as it leaves us on a weird note. The calm and smooth as well as teh truly experimental tracks entirely convince and work very well together. They are all different but have an original atmosphere that connects them all. Sadly, the band decided to put some unnecessary technical thrash metal tracks on the record. The opener " Songs like "In this place" and "Strange" are often too technical, too complicated, too ambitious to convince and may only slowly open to the listeners after several hard tries. In the end, this album convinces me when the band put some emotions in their songs and when they try weird but not too strange experiments that lighten this album up and make it easier too appreciate. Too many technical and heavy tracks disturb the atmosphere of the other songs and prove the band's open minded influences and skills but bury the coherent flow, soul and smooth progression of the other songs. This melting pot, this potpourri, Album), this patchwork record simply doesn't work for me even if more than two third of the songs are truly amazing. That's where I must conclude that this album is indeed very good and worth to be listened to but not as perfect as many people claim. Fans of "Symphony X" and other bands of the same vein should though check this very popular and inspiring album out as a very particular kind of progressive sound has been for the first time fused and created on this record. This is where Psychotic Waltz comes in. Who are you asking? Exactly…The first time I heard about this band was regarding their debut album, A Social Grace, which is considered as a perfect album and a milestone on progressive metal. For the next hour my mind was totally blown away, and all remnants of a band once called Dream Theater were suddenly purged away from the very essence of my soul. A Social Grace has a total of 10 tracks, unless you have like me, a re-release which has Yes it criiiieeeed! They normally follow this pattern of a couple of riffs until the main one, then they go all out there with melodies and solos that leave you wondering how can these guys play so much, just to return to those same riffs from the start at the end of the song. The album follows with Halo Of Thorns which is a more mid-paced song with again excellent guitar work, definitely a great song. Another Prophet Song is another great song pun intended showcasing some of the strange, psychedelic elements they use. They use some sort of tribal drums as extra percussion, along with some weird noises and sounds. And man, what a song it is! Probably the heaviest track on the album and definitely one the best guitar wise. This track will make you headbang as much as any thrash song. It has some weird tempo changes in the drums and a rhythm section that will make the prog fan in you feel like a little child in a candy shop! A Psychotic Waltz follows, another ballad, and one type of song PW would make in subsequent albums, showcasing all their talent as prog musicians and songwriters. The next two tracks are again bonus tracks. The first is taken from the I Remember Single and the second from the famous Aslan Demo, their first incarnation before they adopted the PW name. Both are, again, worthy on being in the album as they flow perfectly with the rest of the songs present. Spiral Tower is a bit like I Of The Storm, a pretty heavy track that shows that even in these guys where already way ahead of their competition! The album then closes with another two tracks that bring the album full circle, and a sample from Spinal Tap — The Movie, at the end of the last track. Even after the addition of three more tracks the album still flows perfectly and its quality is untouched. Not once through the course of this album are you reminded of DT because frankly next to this album they merely exist. Released independently and with hardly any promotion it predictably sank like a stone upon release, despite some very good reviews. Apart from that, there is little they can be compared with except perhaps Black Sabbath and occasional Jethro Tull influences. Guitarists Brian McAlpin and Dan Rock managed to create some incredible riffs that while very complex and unorthodox remain catchy. Sometimes the song will switch between a vicious riff to a stunning acoustic melody completely suddenly, but due to the strong songwriting talent of the band it never sounds at all out of place or disjointed. This is the biggest strength of early Psychotic Waltz, the mix of amazing technicality and genuinely beautiful mellower sections. The sudden changes and intricate song structures keep the album interesting and unpredictable throughout. Acoustic guitars also often make appearances throughout the album. The musicianship of all the members shines on this album. Psychotic Waltz - Into The Everflow. Halo Of Thorns. Another Prophet Song. A Psychotic Waltz. Yep, it took me several years to get a grip on this album, but it has been a trip ever since. Even if I listen to it less often than to other stuff, I would still consider it the best out there. I need to be in the right frame of mind to listen to it, as it truly does not work only as background music. Steen - I could not agree more.
