Deconstructing Sequence – Access Code (2014)


Hailing from the UK, today we have one of the most interesting bands we heard in 2013 return with their EP titled “Access Code”. The Deconstructing Sequence this time around delivers 16 minutes of music in two superbly written tracks that will only make you crave a full release from the band even more. The band’s progressive sound paired with their futuristic atmospheric elements makes them standout immediately.

Opening with “A Habitable World is Found”, DS makes you believe things will be going a more ‘traditional’ way with the Death Metal-ish opening as they deliver growls, crushing riffs and powerful drums. This nicely changes as time goes by into their trippy atmospheric passages with multiple vocal styles and very proggy sounding synths. The track nicely culminates with spoken vocal sections and the nicely cascading musical elements as a backdrop.

Rolling with the momentum, “We Have the Access Code” quickly builds up tempo with a very unique and ‘odd’ opening. The band seamlessly blends multiple genres together and weaves back and forth between them very efficiently and the opener of this track is a testament to this. As this track goes between Death Metal to Post-Rock dreamy passages, we are continuously amused on the creative forces behind this band.

As yet another little teaser of their abilities, “Access Code” is a very solid EP with excellent musical qualities. The band experiments with many things very creatively and in aurally pleasing ways. We hope that the next release is a full-length album, since we are sure we have all been tempted enough with these little samples of brilliance.
