Zenith Myth: Eclipsed V

ECLIPSED V cover art
Eclipsed V is the sophomore album from L.A. electronic artist Zenith Myth, aka Mike Edwards. The ten tracks see the project shift into electronic experimentation mode.  With a metronomic pulse, the record manages to mesh mid tempo arpeggiated synths with intricate drum programming and real drums to bend genres and analog sounds. The guitars are all still in there (6 different guitarists played on the record), but they give way to drones and modulated synthesizers that capture a subtler, more nuanced instrumental dreamscapes this time out. Think eighties synth progressions with classic rock drum fills, alongside waved out guitar loops woven together just enough to bring you in, but disorient simultaneously.
