(HUN/ENG) Full album stream: The Algorithm – Octopus4 (Basick records)

The Algorithm - Octopus4

The Algorithm – Octopus4 album cover

UKDjent metal influenced electro-techno-dubstep, or electro-techno-dubstep influenced djent metal? Well, more like the former, as this album is 80% pure electronics. Bloody weird stuff, but still, there’s much more on the electro than the headbanger side. If you like smooth glitch-tech-dubstep sound, unexpected genre mashups, heavy techno bass, and (of course) djent metal: you gotta give it a listen. The Octopus4 is probably one of the strangest releases so far this year but with Basick records you know that they are going to push the envelope in terms of experimentation without any let up on the quality.

Djent metál hatásokkal operáló electro-techno-dubstep, vagy  electro-techno-dubstep hatásokkal operáló djent metál? Hát, inkább az első, mivel az album 80%-a tiszta elektronika. Iszonyatmód bizarr, de akkoris, jóval több elektromos hatás van benne mint heabangelős téma. Ha szereted a finom glitch-tech-dubstep hangzást, a kiszámíthatatlan stíluskáoszt, a masszív techno basszusokat és (természetesen) a djent metált: mindenképp hallgasd meg ezt a lemezt. Az Octopus4  valószínűleg az év egyik legfurcsább cucca, de a Basick Records neve önmagában is elég garancia egy minőségi muzsikához.

‘synthesiz3r’, the first track to be taken from ‘OCTOPUS4’, the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed ‘Polymorphic Code’, brought to you french electro-prog mashup king The Algorithm, out June 2nd 2014 on BASICK.

“The Algorithm could easily have ended up as a little bleepy curiosity on the periphery of the tech-metal scene. Octopus4 shows there is more — much more — to The Algorithm than a synthesizer having a djent-inspired mental breakdown. If Polymorphic Code put Remi on the map, Octopus4 has consolidated his position” 90% – The Monolith

“The Algorithm’s holistic and all-inclusive approach to music and songwriting is something to be treasured in a world where arbitrary lines are drawn in the sand, dictating where one can and cannot go in the course of a song…Instead of painting himself into a corner, OCTOPUS4 broadens the horizons, and where Gallego goes from here is unknown. The possibilities however, are endless.” 4/5 – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
