Deleter, the name of a new electronic album by Holy Fuck, mixes punk-rock vocals and electronic metallic tones to create a vibe that’ll make people go “holy fuck.” The album takes you on a journey of trippy electronic beats and fire drum solos that mix the ’70s and ’80s with the modern era and will for sure have people dancing (more like passionately swaying and head-nodding) around their living room.
The whole album truly comes across like a psychedelic wonderland in music form. At times, it feels more appropriate to close one’s eyes and merely listen to the music and picture the painted world around them. Truly. Each tune has its own electronic rhythm and beat and takes people down a different path of their mind. Every song has a point in which the music and electricity build to a tipping point, after which the song proceeds to “drop.” The build-up of electronic sounds makes one feel as if they are on a mission through space, and the pairing of percussion and drum-skills adds to this mystical effect.
This album is a true mix of genres that blend seamlessly into its own division of music. The electronic beat stays powerful throughout, but the rambunctious instrumentals and punk-rock vocals bring in a totally new feeling to each song. The song “Endless” was particularly powerful, deep and ominous while the song immediately after it, “Free Gloss,” was far more upbeat. The song after that, “Moment,” sounded completely different from the two prior and felt like a rock concert from the ’70s. Each song had a completely different vibe, yet contained similar use of instruments and sounds. While every song was exciting and new, the album as a whole maintained its distinctive aura through each.
This album honestly could have been produced in a different era, one of the past. It mixes modern rhythm and electronic sounds with a classic rock feel from half a century ago. At some points, the build-ups and drops replicated those of modern electronic dance tunes, but each song was brought back to the surface with ominous vocals and instrumentals. It’s as if these modern electronic sounds were sent through a time vortex to the ’70s or ’80s and the masterminds of those times did what they could with the sound!
This album was created by masterminds; it’s a phenomenal listen, and well-crafted also. It is a very respectable album, and tune after tune is both a surprise and an excitement, never a let down. Go on this journey of music and mind and give Deleter a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
