* * * * * Miasm – The Dark Roads * * * * *
Miasm is the latest project from musician and sound sculpture artist Jeremiah Savage. A journey of dreams extracted from the void, lusty connections in the miasm of thought; shaped by philosophy, art, literature, science, myths, emotions, and life experience exploited in tandem through progressing music structures that evolve with ideas. Structures are familiar like a broken memory or a remembered dream but progress like a poem, book or film. A world inside, created with eyes closed.
The Dark Roads is being worked on as I write. Songs are uploaded as they are finished. The missing pieces to this conceptual album will reveal themselves over the next few months.
[ REVIEWS ]
“Sometimes, music manages to go beyond being just sounds. It paints a picture in the listener’s mind, connecting them to the artist and sharing with them all of the emotions and energy that it was written to convey. It’s not often that an artist can manage such a feat, and normally, it takes a full album to get the entire experience. But The Dark Roads, a work in progress album from one-man musical project Miasm, manages just that, and absolutely oozes with atmosphere from start to finish.
Every single track has so much character, it’s damn hard to believe this is all the work of just one man. And what’s more, the album isn’t even finished yet, being continually updated as each new song is written, and still all for free. It’s admirable, to say the very least.
‘Origin Of Nothing’ starts the whole affair off as it means to go on – namely, with sorrow-drenched guitars dancing elegantly together, with moody, menacing undertones. In fact, sorrow drenched in menace is about the best way to describe the general Miasma sound, although it doesn’t really do it justice – it’s hard to find one particular word to summarise the experience adequately. The vocals are a key factor in the atmosphere, and there’s something very shoegazey about Savage’s delivery of them on the opener in particular. His own lamentations bleed effortlessly in with those of the guitars, keeping the melancholic tone steady throughout. The piano near the end is particularly ear-catching, and manages to send shivers down my spine every time, without fail.”
[ Ripple Music Blog ] ”The music on this EP is in fact very dreamy and immersive, using a wide variety of textures on the guitar work with the addition of keyboards and foggy vocals. It will provide you with an haunting and mysterious listen, while tactfully maintaining a strong unwinding effect.”
[ Suns In Scorpio Music ] ”Under the name Miasm, Utah’s Jeremiah Savage creates brooding, experimental music that largely escapes easy categorization or definition, yet surges forward with a palpable sense of purpose.”
And here goes another beautiful music ensemble but this time with vocals. Needless to say immediate download of 7-track album in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. THIS IS GOOD guys, I mean the free part BUT above all the music itself. Easy listening with a flawless melancholic vibe. BE SURE TO HAVE A GO on this one.
