Official debut record from excellent new HNW project Echolaliac. Drawing inspiration from Small Hours' seminal "Kingdom Hearts" release and my own soundtrack reinterpretation work, "Symphonic Rain" sees Echolaliac working with the OST and related elements of the visual novel game Symphonic Rain, creating an utterly immense, immersive, nuanced and majestic display of HNW dynamicism. The various pieces on this beautifully exhaustive album work their way through an awesome variety of textures, tones, melodies, and moods; at turns aggressive and furious as well as yearning, restrained, and emotionally intense, the work here bears repeated listenings and deep, considerate exploration. One of the most impressive, thoughtful, and well-constructed HNW records I've heard in a long while. I'm very happy to be releasing this through AOW.
The album is available to stream (or purchase digitally) through Echolaliac's Bandcamp:
