Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) October 02, 2013 -- The hard rock ensemble from Sydney, Australia known as Enter Reality have released their debut extended-play record, "00.6 EP," which has been anxiously awaited by a passionate and international fan base. The album is comprised of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 22 minutes. Dark, brooding, violent and often stunningly beautiful, the "00.6 EP" by Enter Reality is a harbinger of some very promising things to come from these heavy hitters down under.
At first listen, the sound of Enter Reality is characterized immediately by the delicate gorgeousness and measured aggression of lead singer Rachel Holden. Her clarion delivery and naturally crystalline timbre fly high above Enter Reality's instrumentation, which seethes and surges below like the depths of a serpent-infested ocean. The guitars (Adam Plimmer, Dan Purdon) build a wall of sound that manages to stay in the lower register while never becoming dull or uncreative. Loud, chunky and thick as sheet metal, ER's guitars are complex and intelligent, every song having something new in store for the guitar afficionado.
Also surprisingly prominent in the Enter Reality experience is the melodic and remarkable work of Aaron Cauchi on bass, whose active playing is reminiscent of Tool's best material, and a mainstay of ER's sound. Drummer Kurt Sticker's precision guides this expert crew like a conductor of classical music, his staccato snare hits sounding sharp and punctuated, his kick drums rumbling and ominous below. Sticker's orchestrated yet riotous noise is full of speed and calculation, like a cross between a machine gun and a sniper rifle.
The combined sound recalls Maynard James Keenan's Y2K side project, A Perfect Circle. ER's official bio states that, "Enter Reality draw their sound from Australian rock bands such as Karnivool, Butterfly Effect and Dead Letter Circus, as well as bands like Deftones and Staind."
Nevertheless, when asked directly to cite some main artistic influences, Enter Reality politely decline, saying, "Artistically, we are influenced by the world around us from a musical perspective. Drawing upon elements of rock, metal, classical and progressive styles, we aim to create a unique experience for the listener."
The album has already raised eyebrows from the heavy metal and alternative rock communities all over the globe, and it is sure to catapult Enter Reality to new heights of popularity. The audiophile would do well to get in early.
The "00.6 EP" by Enter Reality is available online worldwide.
