In a galaxy far, far away, two guys decided to pair Star Wars with deathcore to create The Senate and ultimately provide you with galaxy shattering tunes in the form of a full length titled Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away. This brand new record contains eight tracks of spine breaking deathcore for you to bruise your brains and crank your necks to. Through and through, Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is an entirely entertaining and enjoyable listen whether you are a fan of Star Wars or not.
Through eight tracks you are gifted with face peeling tunes that blast and chip away at your skull until the final note has sounded off. From the very first track on, The Senate blasts off at light speed providing you with some sickeningly heavy and bone crushing tunes. This onslaught doesn’t last for too long however as this record is pretty short in length, but what it lacks in longevity it more than makes up for in entertainment and quality. Each track on this record is well done as The Senate provides you with a cohesive and unrelenting cosmic pummeling.
Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is down tuned deathcore madness done oh so well. This wall of pure maniacal slaughtering is incredibly heavy. The Senate hardly gives you time to prepare for an utterly bone splintering listen as they nearly immediately bury you under droves of blast beats and menacingly heavy riffs. The breakdowns that they incorporate in each track just about bury you under the earth and really give you no other option other than to head bang until your neck completely snaps. The vocals that shear their way through the wall of sonic madness are rabid and blood thirsty as they switch between throat shredding gutturals and just as grisly and gritty screams as well as the occasional pig squeal.
Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is a completely unrelenting and unapologetic listen. Each track is just as heavy and deadly as the ones that came before it and for eight straight songs you are pummeled within an inch of your life. The marriage between Star Wars and deathcore is a good one here and it really does seem as though these guys are having nothing but fun with this and that just makes this release that much more enjoyable to listen to.
This is a solid listen for just deathcore fans as well as fans of both deathcore and Star Wars. If you are looking for some brutalizing tunes that are just purely entertaining to listen to, Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away certainly is the record for you.
