The unfortunate situation with my exams is the fact that revision should (and will) be taking up most of my time during the day. This has meant that for the past 2 months, all of my blogging has limited by the fact that I simply don’t have the time to put into it properly. This will change after the 25th, but for the mean time I continue to apologise.
This lack of time means I will not be able to do a full album review of Pendulum’s new album Immersion. I have however selected two of the better tracks from the album for your listening pleasure.
Crush is what I would describe as a typical Pendulum tune, with their familiar (and increasingly tedious) drumbeat and a heavy dose of guitar riffs. It’s not a bad track, but the drumming has started to get on my nerves, as they have shown little deviation in style over the course of 3 studio albums.
Self vs Self features Swedish death metal band In Flames, and this track is probably my favourite from the album. The two differing styles of music seem to compliment each other well, and it sees Pendulum stepping out from their usually generic productions. If the album had more material like this on it then it would be fantastic.
By the way, if anyone else has listened to the album and has heard Under The Waves, please tell me you think it’s a straight up track jacking of the High Contrast Remix of Pjanoo. Criminal.
