‘Illuminaudio’ | Chiodos
The album starts with the title track, which can only be described as a series of uncomfortable electronic noises with the subtle entrance of emotionally intense and fitting vocals by Bolmer. Setting the mood for the album, “Illuminaudio” seamlessly transforms into “Caves,” a truly heavy and powerful masterpiece that really shows off Bolmer’s chops.
Bolmer, however, is not the sole deserver of praise for the fantastic musicality of “Illuminaudio”; both the perfectly layered keyboard and synthesizer tracks, as well as the harmonic and headbanging guitar riffs drive the album.
“Illuminaudio” is a flawless, perfect album and will be deemed holy by any fan of post-hardcore, or any lover of good music.
