The music of Celldweller is hard to encapsulate in a mere review. It’s equivalent at times to the image of a towering beast emerging from its unearthly catacomb to lay waste upon unexpecting cities. It’s science fiction symphonics woven together with voicings of modern metal guitars transformed under dub stepping, complex mixing, and orchestral harmonics.

As I listened to the 4 tracks of “Soundtrack for the voice in my head Chapter 3″, I was … Continue reading
