the sentry

2013

A blend of metallic industrial percussion, jagged beats, a hefty dose of pulse-width modulation and ethnic instruments.

The narrative of this track shouldn't be unknown to those familiar with the horror that is Geoff Crammonds "the Sentinel".

Opening with an ominous drone outlining the tension one feels when desperately trying to remain discreet, this suspense lasts for a few measures only until it is interrupted by an air raid siren setting the pace to ramming speed as the protagonist is found in the shadows.

The middle section outlines the inevitable clash which leads back to a more positive portrait of the initial conflict theme...

...but was the actual outcome indeed positive ?
