So instead I'm going to write about an album I've been listening to.
Last week I introduced myself to a band called Elder, and their album Reflections of a Floating World. It showed up in a recently released list, to the extent that as of right now it's been available for only 13 days.
I've listened to it 4 times in it's entirety, and it's captivated me every time. It's a hard-rock/progressive album, there's 6 tracks, with the shortest being 8 minutes 40 seconds long, so it's a bit of an investment if you are to hunt it down to enjoy. I put it on as I've been trying to listen to a lot of different music recently, and the recently released is satisfying to no end.
There's a lot of elements to it, I actually listened to it tonight, and got inspired, so after finishing listening to the album and then some further studying for my exam, I unleashed my guitar, and sat down to try and write something. While not similar, I'm using distortion not overdrive, the heresy, I can certainly tell the roots have come from the inspiration I've drawn. I started with something simple, and very rapidly grew on it, to make something I'm already proud of, and considering I only have 16 bars recorded, I'm looking to diving into more.
I don't want to spout lyrical about an album that's very niche, but if you're a progressive rock/metal fan, I'd highly recommend it, like I've already said, I've listened to it 4 times already, and I plan to listen to it a lot more.
Also, this week's podcast was with Dom and we talked about D&D and a few other things, like player unknowns battlegrounds, and our seeming lack of interest in E3. It can be found here!
Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!
