Sigma Ori Releases The Most Beautiful Instrumental Rock Album You'll Ever Hear
Sigma Ori has graced us with an adventurous and progressive rock album that encapsulates the best parts of math, and alternative rock you could want to hear.
The instrumental album is an absolute opus of floating guitars, pinpointed drumming, moving bass lines and each track seems to have a life all its own.
Having said that, the Beyond The Dome album is a concept record and songs flow into each other like water and throughout this musical journey you find a great range of color, shine, grit, emotion, and perfectionism you can only find with this type of rock.
The songs have ethers that are packed with energy and space.
The album swells and sways, inhales and exhales, and takes you along for a ride through massive worlds that somehow are able to tell stories with such detail it's ridiculous and all without a word.
You're sailing across vast oceans, lurking in dripping caves, running for your life, battling, and embarking on journeys that take you to great distances that feel at first far from home, then right at home again later.
This record is the definition of a passion project.
These guys do it because they are straight up in love with doing it. This is the most clear of all things.
Musically the record hits all the progressive rock sweet spots and brings in jazz undertones and at times even make you think of classic nintendo games.
The best is when that bassist decides to fuzz out his sound and go nuts. Even this is done with a precision and yet still a passion that bleeds all over everything in sight.
Righteous harmonies and power packed punches to the gut all fall around you and you are under the skin of the record. The veil of the sounds. Behind the curtain and deep in the mental adventure that Beyond The Dome gives you.
This is a really big feeling album and it's incredibly difficult to just do a few songs. It's best listened to from start to finish. This will make you think and make you feel.
Gorgeous melodies are riddled throughout the course of this record and it feels like sinking, rising up, and making it back to shore somehow.
One of the most beautiful instrumental rock albums you'll ever hear. Hands down. Period. The End.
