Wow. That is the first word that comes to mind upon listening to this song. 'Transluence' is a rare breed of song that presents itself so well that you find it difficult to multitask whilst listening. In fact, I found it physically difficult to write this review whilst it was playing in the background, I had to stop and listen thoughtfully every 15 seconds or so. I found myself closing my eyes and imagining a beautiful green forest full of exceptionally stunning trees that would delicately sway in the light breeze, leaves would fall to the ground, and a brown and white rabbit would jubilantly jump over them. The scene in my head would then shift to a graceful deer navigating through the trees, before drinking from a clear, flowing stream of freshwater. And then, reality hit. I was sitting at my desk. I was not in a forest, I was in suburbia. It took me a few seconds to truly come to terms with what was happening, and so I started to write this review, and here we are.
I feel this song deserves more than a conventional review, because in no way is it a conventional song. A story must be given instead, as that it what was received upon listening to this instrumental masterpiece. All the instruments blend perfectly, and absolutely nothing is left to be desired.
Congratulations, you took a hardcore metal fan on a music induced journey, and I never though I would see the day. SEIMS wiill be releasing their new EP "3.1" on Friday March 29
