Let me start off by stating that borderline demonic, metal-inspired electronic music isn't in my usual listening repertoire (anymore) but I made an easy exception for rising bass music producer Code: Pandorum's newest, Beatport Chart topping release, God. Although its style lies beyond my everyday listening boundaries, both in its twisted demeanor and excessively aggressive personality, Code: Pandorum's new LP is an unmistakable production feat: a budding producer's thoughtfully woven musical masterpiece two years in the making, which renders my undying respect based on these key elements alone. The LP's insanely clean production value mixed with its heavily felt storytelling abilities are enough to invite me to temporarily indulge in the gnarlier side of bass music again.
Aside from its impressively sharp technical engineering, Code: Pandorum's God LP carries an all-embracing theme of "The Equality between Heaven and Hell," demonstrated through the release's intense power and the magnificent duality of its passionate orchestral symphonies, melodic structure and haunting choir vocals, elegantly woven into its brutal, unrelenting tones, ruthless drums and cold-blooded bass. Each track acts as a separate, grueling chapter in Code: Pandorum's sonic horror story, which entices listeners to embark on a demented, surreal auditory odyssey as they endeavor to withstand the merciless depths of God's13 menacingly captivating and delightfully unsettling tracks.
