On first listen of ‘The Descent’ by The Chronicles of Manimal and Samara you are in for a treat. On second, third, and forth listen you begin to become aware of it as a piece of art beyond music in so many ways.
The beginning of the song is the narrated poetic voice of Mother Nature expressing her wishes and feelings and impending concern, but then half way through the track new life is breathed through it with heavy distorted guitar textures and a visual beat. The energy from this new texture is absorbing and allows the meaningful and awaking lyrics to take its most important stage.
‘The Descent’ will enhance your knowledge and understanding, at the same time providing a massive moving musical background, the changes within the layers are harsh and reflective of the vocals. To get a full sense of the brutal and beautiful nature of ‘The Descent’, we here at Off the Hook Music suggest you watch the video which goes with this record.
