This is some of the latest CD I've got...
Deepset "the light we shed shall burn your eyes" CD
This is the latest album I've got this week. This CD is still playing in my CD player until today. Yes, I love this CD. Previously know as Deepset Joy (now Deepset), it's no news to the people that Deepset is one of the most thoughtful and talented post-rock band coming from Kuala Lumpur. This Kuala Lumpur quartet has already released one self-titled EP a few back years. One good turn another, they've finally released an album called "The light we shed shall burn your eyes" is a masterpiece of relentless beauty and soul. They really put a strong sense of psychedelic ambience that adds a great effect to their songs and put out a unique atmosphere that only they can creat. The music rise and falls severals times as the melodies shift back and forth. After a little while, the music begins to slow down and recede, when as usual, the drums come in and the guitars distort and it grows and explode in the end and that time I just move my head to the melodies. All of their songs have their own blend of depression, angry, pain, happy and sometimes really makes me wanna cry. I don't know what to say. It feels like I'm walking down memory lane,memorizing my childhood years. The ups and downs I faced through the years of being a kids. Then face the truth reality of this fuck up world. The major problem that stems from this album is the fact that it sound remarkably similar to the mighty Japanese post-rocker, Mono but who cares as I really love this album so much. Deepset demonstrate with "The light we shed shall burn your eyes" that feelings and emotions can be provoke not by ear-crushing,heavy pounding noise but with simple melodies driven by true heart and soul. Really recommended!!
