Beyond Beyond Carries A Variety Of Tones & Eternal Sound From Lightning Hunter

6 Dec

If one merges the concept of eternity and experimental music, they will get the creation from Lightning Hunter. With the style of progressive rock instrumentally strung throughout the album, listeners identify quickly the raw and organic undertones that Charles Scandura intertwines in his music. With a heavy emphasis on time in this album and drawn out synths, you can hear the mixing of self expression and passion all mixed in one. Compared to the bands Placebo, Silversun Pickups, and Soundgarden, Lighting Hunter has made a name for themselves within the progressive music world. Between mixing references to brain science and our connection to the universe and more philosophical musings of our existence and our human-ness, they leave the listeners thinking. As an aside from having strong music, the songs on the album hold powerful meanings to the words that make up the lyrics, shattering the bonds of time and space infinitely.

One could infer that they are referencing society’s decisions and how much power an individual has in choosing to choose to connect, while in ironicness not connecting. When listeners hear this band, they can hear similarities to David Bowie, The Monkees, and Dhani Harrison. The band is made up of Lis Viega, Alexandra Holt, Anna Eppink, and Christopher Sluka.

22 Sep

With the start of the song heavy on synthetic beats, listeners become drawn into another world crafted by Eagle|Stallion in their new EP called Reckless Gods, in particular with the track Poseidon’s Dead.

Typical of a traditionally good EDM beat, listeners want to listen to beat variation, and the synth sound that is so unique to EDM tracks.

Overall, with the tones of the mythological world and the sounds of Eagle| Stallion, the two worlds collide to form a perfect world.
