Track By Tracks: Redshift - Cataclysm (2019)


1. OVERTURE – SOMETHING IN THE SKY:

The first track is an instrumental introduction to the story. It mainly consists of themes and variations that appear throughout the album. It’s short and fast paced and is a good way to ease you in.

2. INVASION:

This is where the story begins. Musically it feels like a circus of metal with menacing undertones but also has a strong melodic current throughout. This song stays fairly heavy throughout and is a good representation of what we’re like as a band. Check out the track, here - https://youtu.be/D4pqtdOoeFo

3. CALL TO ARMS:

For this track, we wanted a shorter, more to the point song that contained the energy, intensity and was still technical in areas. This song is a lot more vocally driven and contains all the power and the relentlessness without losing any of the emotion.

4. PROMISES:

In need of a dynamic change of pace to break up major points in the story. It’s a nice piano piece that sets you up nicely for the heavier, more cinematic half of the album.

5. FIRE, SMOKE, AND THUNDER:

The heaviest song on the album. This is the real depiction of the battle between worlds portrayed with the aggressive and darker instrumentation, but it still has the progressive influences that drive us all.

6. MAY FATE REST UPON YOU:

Twined with the last song, this really does represent the beginning of the end. Playful use of time signatures and raw emotional energy. It’s one of the more ambitious songs on the album structurally. It’s a very diverse track that contains some of the lightest and darkest moments.

7. THE LAST STAND:

The most technical song on the album with plenty of twists and turns. 80’s slap bass, 70’s Camel inspired organ. Right at the very end the protagonist has got what he wanted but at a big cost and this is reflected as it drifts into the calming and emotional Promises reprise. It’s our prog feast and a satisfying conclusion to the story.
