Steve Roach - The Passing (2017) - Review

Artist: Steve Roach
Album title: The Passing
Release date: 16 February 2017
Label: Self-Released

Tracklist:
01. The Passing

Steve Roach is an artist that has meant more and more to me as the years go by, his heavenly sonic tapestries have woven themselves into the very core of my being and this new release has left me speechless.

What a delight it is to see a surprise long-form piece released on his 62nd birthday! This man cannot be stopped and was clearly sent here solely to guide us into our higher selves and bless us with his soundscapes.
 
“The Passing” starts off with his signature droning ambience bubbling in and out of your consciousness and breathing all around you. Slowly it builds up aiding you in reflection of long passed family members or animal companions, how it might be in the other side or if they really are somewhere out there in the ether. These feelings come and go as the track builds as an emotional and heart-wrenching drone starts to build around 22 minutes in leaving me feeling weightless and full of welling emotions. I sit here as the world fades away, leaving the darkness of the past behind. All that I’m left with is what can only be described as how it sounds when you ascend to what we might deem as heaven.

Steve Roach is at his highest tier in this release and shows his mastery at building an atmosphere… a world you can live inside and experience it in many ways. From the subtle thought provoking melodies he weaves throughout this track to the bass rumbling around you this will leave a mark on your life as all his music has for me personally. If you’re looking for some answers inside yourself or to let ghosts of the past rest easy, then plug this world into your ears and let it take you to places you never dreamt were real.

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Nocturne
Album title: Nocturne
Release date: 15 January 2015
Label: Unlight Productions

Nocturne's first album offers nine songs where strong epic impacts with varied melodic lines are supported by gloomy atmospheric keyboards and fine vocals in background. Music has many different characters, but the main thing is very dark and extremely dynamic sound of all instruments. Vocals show two different sides, one evil and the other one friendly - in short, excellent! Keyboards are definitely the biggest complement to the sound and upgrade the beauty of melodic guitar passages. The addictive atmosphere all over helps you to forget the physical world that surrounds you.
