6:33 – Deadly Scenes (CD)
Wow! Yep, this is what I said when I first started streaming this latest new album by Paris, France’s 6:33.
They play a very, very, very unique and at times a tripping style of Avant-garde rock music with a few popish and soul themes thrown in for good measure. It is 6:33’s overall uniqueness and Avant-garde songwriting talents, which make “Deadly Scenes” one heck of an interesting release.
There’s an actual church choir singing “Praise The Lord” kind of shit as the intro for the first track, aptly titled “Hellalujah”. Then they’ve even a church monk singing shit on here as well, which sounded disturbingly brilliant.
“I’m A Nerd” is a catchy song with its feverish display of upbeat and emotional guitar and synth workouts along with the Devin Townsend type of industrial atmosphere.
There are countless influences within the music section on “Deadly Scenes” from Devin Townsend, Strapping Young Lad and movie soundtracks.
“Modus Operandi” soothes the disheartened soul with it church organ and distorted groove guitar rhythms, which is oddly a very cool concept of forcefully marrying the two bastard ideas.
This album is definitely a must have for listeners into Devin Townsend, movie soundtracks, and even eclectic rock music too. There is too much here musically and vocally to even write about, as it would not do the potential listener any justice, as listening to it is the only way to understand where this bandis coming from. Check it out-very Avant-garde and bizarre at times, haha. [Kaotoxin] Sarjoo Devani
