'THE COLOR ANALYSIS OF APOCALYPTIC EVENTS' was released on October 16, 2012 as a 13-song eclectic progressive instrumental guitar-oriented album.
'THE COLOR ANALYSIS OF APOCALYPTIC EVENTS', aka 'TCAOAE', album is a loosely conceptional look at the end of the world. At least, as we know it. A soundtrack to the end of everything we perceive. Dark, tense, haunting, cynical. Even twistedly humorous, at times as found in “Wexamex The Protector”, TCAOAE takes you to some black areas. An all-instrumental guitar-oriented album with plenty of atmosphere and mood. The album starts off with “Snonado”, a bouncy weather-phenomenon twister of snow. Innocent and playful yet heavy. Then dashing us off to a festival or celebration of “Joyfulness (The Ritual)”, a drum circle of summoning. “Hold Em In” is a play on a catchy vocal loop. Folk that allures and entrances listener to join in. “Hold 'em in, it's alright!”. Rotating wickedness, a stereo tour de force, comes from the “The Carousel” in the style of Steve Hackett with the darkness of Pink Floyd. An homage to Hackett.
The title track cometh as the epic piece “The Color Analysis Of Apocalyptic Events”. Its working title was dubbed “Bruford” for its rock-fusion style before assembling its grand final version. Scaling things back a little, “End Of The World Blues” adds a somber and sad reflection of the earth falling apart around us. Sitting on the top of a cove at midnight. “Deezallved Spirits” and “Deezallved Spirits Return” shares a building melody line that is as haunting yet pleasurable as dancing ghost children.
Driving, rhythmic, and memorizing is “Council Of Nemesis”. A paced behind-close-doors ear-to-the-wall eavesdrop on enemies locked in a chamber. Tongue-in-cheek, 80's-ish cop show soundtrack that is not an easily shaken thought from “Wexamex The Protector”. Wexamex came from a dream of an item that protects any good person from evil. Dreams, huh? Next, “India Night Trail” makes an ethical turn of leaving and abandonment of home. Sorry, Sting, but your rain forests are “gettin' it” too in “Mr. Sumner's Disintegrating Forest”. Finally, it's the end of the world so might as well dance to "The Rave In Hell". 'The Color Analysis Of Apocalyptic Events' is a collection of guitar, keyboard and drum loops with catchy guitar melodies, atmospheric synthes and enticing poly-rhythm. Music for the end of days.
