" Doomsday Kid. Diaries " is a debut album by the band P.I.Light. It consists of 11 songs with electronica intro and outro (noise sounds made by The Forest). The album is very eclectic: alternative, metal, experimental, electronic. Heavy sound. Apocalyptic fiction and outer space music. Tale of an alien kid from dying planet.
All vocals performed by the female singer.
If "Doomsday Kid. Diaries" could be described in a single word, that word would be "claustrophobic". From the very beginning to it's amazing conclusion, "Doomsday Kid. Diaries" is an album that exudes hopelessness and despair. It takes several listens for it to sink in, but once it does you realize it is the same creatively throbbing pulsing rhythms and haunting vocals that you would expect from bands like Portishead and Korn.
Behind this marvelous production stands our new discovery from Georgia вЂ“ the band P.I.Light. Their music is just simply expansive and progressive. The overall sound is a sort of a downbeat industrial/electronic thing with a healthy mix of heavy guitars and blasting vocals. The songs flow perfectly, with the instrumentation sparse when it needs to be and booming where required. It's another record that nails the balance of a cohesive tone while varying the sound enough to keep the songs unique and interesting.
The overall vibe can be described, as follows - simply close your eyes and picture the band playing inside of a tiny cell, desperately longing to be free. There are glimpses of hope - beams of light shining through a tiny cell window - but the overall mood that is conveyed with "Doomsday Kid. Diaries" is incredibly bleak.
Whether this album is even definable as rock, metal or alternative is debatable. As it stands though, "Doomsday Kid. Diaries" is a difficult album to define, and P.I.Light should be credited with that. It is an album whose technical merits are outdone only by the emotional shadow that it casts on its listener. It is unlike anything we've ever had the pleasure of hearing, and it is a journey that absolutely needs to be experienced!
