Open Eyed Dreamer Part I : Revelation Electro-Industrial, Metal Ghost In The Static Ghost In The Static is a UK based industrial metal act which focuses more on clean vocals and the usual distorted and grunting ones or screaming ones that you may find hanging around in this genre. I am asking myself a question, what does the band want to be really Metal or Electro Because there is quite a mix and sometimes its very typical Metal and then there are a lot of Electro parts also. I would compare the band with KMFDM or even Die Krupps, but with more melodic vocals. The album 'Open Eyed Dreamer Part 1: Revelation' offers you no less than 14 tracks and over 1 hours of industrial mayhem. The combination varies a lot between slow and melodic tracks and faster paced tracks with blast beats and electric guitars. This isn't an album for electroheads but if you are into industrial metal you will most likely dig this. Since I used to be a metal head myself I think this is very nice, the only problem is that the vocals seems a bit poorly produced sometimes and sometimes they sound really well produced. It's not the voice itself, because the vocals are really great and the singer has a awesome voice. There is one track "Journey" which has a really nice piano playing and it's a very soft and slow track, but very moody and sounds really nice. There are also a few ambient tracks in the midst of everything which makes the album tempo go down a bit. 'Open Eyed Dreamer Part 1: Revelation is a pretty' good album overall although the quality between tracks are varied and so are the vocal effects. The singer has a great voice and there are some really great tracks on the album but I think it might be a bit too varied sometimes which might be hard for some people to grip. And like I said before this isn't for all people but if you like Die Krupps and KMFDM, I am sure you will dig this album. 450
