Unzyme “Brainforest” review

Have you ever found yourself in a situation when at first you didn’t like a song, but once you’ve listened to it few more times, you got literally addicted?
Have you ever found yourself on a accidental website reading about music genre you’d never listen to, because it’s not the music you used to listen and after a while you fell in love with it?
Unzyme is one of those kind of unexpected addictions.

Founded in late 2008, the band itself describes the music they play as biomechanical pop, which is a mixture of pop with electronica, indie and alternative music.
Their debut album “Brainforest” was composed between 2008 and 2010 and was released on 10th of October 2010 under their own label, Unzyme Laboratories.
The album consists of 12 unique songs that turns you on with catchy melodies and true and intelligent lyrics.

From the first beats of “Lose your place” you simply want to move along as the song goes. But when you close your eyes and listen to it wisely, the lyrics are very positive and makes you feel like you are really not going to lose your fight and you won’t show off your fright to anyone.

As you’re listening to the album, you hear songs full of lyrics that shows up a whole portrait of it’s author. Words written by someone that exactly knew how it was supposed to look like from the beginning. Strong and a bit perky yet the musical background makes it brisk together. And lyrics perfectly cooperate with the music whole the way.

The album ends up with relaxing sound of of instrumental piece called “Universal Constructor”. And after 11 songs with a powerfull kick it makes a listener chill out the best way.

Iconcrash “Enochian Devices” review


Inspiring, honest, deep and emotional. “Enochian Devices” leads us through a journey that many people identify themselves with.

TRUE WILL shows listeners all the emotions that every one of us goes through at some point of life. From fear and hopelessness, through anger and congestion thoughts to deeply hidden hope for better tomorrow.

CIRCLE OF SIGILS begins with a song full of burning anger and dissapointment caused by the fact that someone important for us is no longer the same person and that relations between two people once perfect changed for worse are cannot be rebuild again. But first two lines: “Rise after centuries of hate/ Stop, no need to be afraid of falling” gives hope that we are all able to move on even when we’ve been hurt. Further on the album we can hear songs fullfiled with hopes and fears of what would happen but ended too soon. Yet still it shows that we are getting stronger while we might see ourselves weak.

Deep, poetic lyrics, inspiring and soft but still strong melodies and charismatic vocals make this album one of the best ones I’ve ever heard in my life. It reminds me what I’ve been through in life and while it still hurts, “Enochian Devices” helps me get through, calms me down and leads my self-esteem back on the right track.
