Artist: Pride & Fall
CD Title: Nephesh
Listen to a Sample of "December" by Pride & Fall
Listen to the full-lenghth mp3 of "Construct" by Pride & Fall Good things tend to come from Norway, and Pride and Fall, is one of those things. “Nephesh”, is the bands new CD with powerful synths, that gives the music a trance like feel. This CD is filled with super dance beats that will dominate the clubs. The CD has an excellent mix dark electro feel, with upbeat programming. The music is in the vein of VNV Nation, but definitely had a darker edge. The vocals have a more gothic feel, but still have a smooth pure sound. What really made be enjoy this CD was that every song was a strong effort. It would be hard to pick a single on this album, because every song has a great club feel. The only tracks that were not would the intro track, called “The Approach”, and it opened up to “Inside” a hit from the start, and the instrumental “Serenade of Dreams”. It was funny to hear that songs like “December,” “Inside,” and “Extinction Means Forever,” were suggestion tracks from the label, well how about, “Paragon,” Matriarch” “Omniscient,” or “Construct” all highly danceable and with my recommendation. The album is a well-crafted mix of gothic elements and trance like synths. As a first time listener to the band, I was really pleased, and you will find this CD in my player for a long time. Once you hear it, it is really hard to stop listening to it. It is not to often that a CD like that comes along. This CD has much promise, and will be making lots of heads turn their way.
