The Skinny: Taking his cerebral brand of auditory darkness to a new level, Trillion Red mastermind Patrick Brown is one of metal’s few musicians who, with his latest creation, can legitimately claim to have discovered new musical territory. Metaphere is Trillion Red’s debut full-length and follow’s last year’s Two Tongues EP. This LP mightily sheds ‘the disconnects’ of Two Tongues, and unleashes a united and firm mark onto the dark progressive avant-garde metal sound. It showcases the enormous leap Patrick has taken in creating soundscapes that alternate between heavy and hammering structures and ambient interludes, which all come together to create a twisted musical abstract.
Trillion Red is firmly rooted, both thematically and musically, in the radical emotions of the human experience. Despite the existential and intangible subject matter, the struggle between darkness and light is the core concept throughout Metaphere, something to which everyone can relate and derive inspiration. This is to be enjoyed and savored as a boundless experience that flows seamlessly from beginning to end. Take further passes, and time after time, your ears will gain further insight to what is being said. With a passion to create a new and inspirational musical experience, Trillion Red exceeds expectations with the release of Metaphere. Close your eyes and let your ears tell the story.
