Leitmotif: 'A dominant and recurring theme,..'
The dominant and recurring theme woven into the heart of Dredg's first albumn on a major is passion. Heart wrenching passion that makes your glands secrete warm fuzzy feelings throughout your body as you sweat and forget where you are.
In music's current state of abject cynicism and shallowness Dredg make you feel something special is brewing. The muscianship and production are skilled, vibrant and emotive but its the whole sound and feeling you soak up, the totality of the passages, that conspire to lift you out of the mundane quicksand and take you to a place all great music can.
They occupy the same territory as Tool's best moments and share a determined integrity to create something outside of normal song structure while retaining a sense of human passion and heart.
Of course this is all simple hyperbole that I could cut and paste any review I want to. All I ask is that you take a chance on this record, a chance to experience something special, unique and genuine.
This record will change you.
