- Seismic Cry returns with their second release REVErENCE, a conceptual album based in a way on the 4-part epic “Saint-Laurent” from their 2004’s The Hopeless Flare. Again Seismic Cry main composer,, Phillipe Gaudet crafts another impressive and dark collection of songs that transports the listener back a hundred years ago, to the time of the Yukon gold rush.
Joining Phillipe on this release, is a new lead vocalist Mico, who has a pleasant voice with folkish inflections that clearly suit’s the music Phillipe composed this time around. Mico has a nice range in her vocals, going from a smoky, breathy lower range to a higher range. Phillipe handles the instrumentation, which almost sounds like a full band. Pure genius if you ask me.
REVErENCE takes you through a journey back in time and lets you experience a Canadian Gothic story told brilliantly through music. It’s haunting sounds created by Phillipe’s instrumentation and the vocals of Mico and Tony Sharkey makes for an adventurous dark journey. It is an impressive follow up from 2004’s The Hopeless Flare, but stepping up a few notches. If you enjoyed the first album, you will love REVErENCE! Highly recommended!!
