“Cardboard Coffins”, is a nice proposal, which shows a good technical mastery in the genre to be proposed. Soft and gritty general sound, with an aggressive and at the same time sharp vocal line. An intense and well-constructed general atmosphere where the dynamics make listening even more compelling and exalting.
“Cardboard Coffins” involves the listener by dragging him into a suggestive dimension that gives off excellent vibrations through synth, which give a remarkable sound impact. Moons In Retrograde , certainly has excellent potential to be able to propose original and not at all obvious ideas, surprising the listener in a positive way, managing to give even more a beautiful injection of energy.
