It’s always a great feeling when you find an artist being an enthusiast of something else than the music itself, especially when the thing that artist is enthusiastic about is something you are enthusiastic about as well. Ugh, hopefully I didn’t mess up with your brains a lot.
I’ve just came into this Patrick Healy guy and his Lazarus Project over at Bandcamp and at first, I really liked the music that’s full of Allan Holdsworth harmonics. Mr. Healy itself confirms that Mr. Holdsworth is a major influence. But the thing that made me even more interested in this project is actually the upcoming November release called Brethren Moons. So, what’s the deal, you ask? Let me paraphrase what Mr. Healy wrote on the album’s page:
Brethren Moons is a concept album surrounding the dark and frightening atmosphere of the Dead Space series of video games. A grim, cold and mechanical departure from the dreamy fusion of the Worlds Apart EP, this debut full length effort will trap you in a realm of calculated melancholy.
I am a BIG fan of the Dead Space game series! I’ve finished recently the third part in the series and experienced full deal of traumas and nightmares. But hey, you cannot take that from me! I think that I have even some screencapture’s somewhere, but I don’t wanna bother about it right now.
What I want to say is, you all should check Patrick Healy’s Lazarus Project. If you are a fan of Allan Holdsworth chased by Pink Floyd, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Mars Volta, Jean-Luc Ponty, then Lazarus Project is definitely something worth checking out.
I think I will reschedule my list of the most anticipated records by the end of the year.
