Oktober Mourning Part 1 of 5
Great drums carry this dramatic and slightly ominous number. The guitar line is circular and changes texture and style verse to verse. Lead on the left and organ on the right detracts from melody and power focus, but this sounds like a demo with fairly ambient drums, though there's more production than that usually entails. This is the first of the five movements to the complete "Oktober Mourning."
The melody line in "Sandblaster" is middle eastern, and the drama and power substantial. It's a compelling and engaging song with plenty to keep you interested. Aurally, it is reminiscent of The Treble Spankers in some ways. Very cool!
