The sophomore album of Beyond Dawn deserves a mention, finally remastered and reissued on vinyl, for the first time. On Revelry, the band moved further away from their metal past, expanding their sound into vaster territories. 50+ minutes of dark, melancholic alternative rock.
Looking at the cover image for this mix and listening to Revelry brings vivid memories of the late 90’s, my 90’s. This gorgeous analogue photograph of a laidback group of friends/family with their instruments, a baby, toys. Not bothered by forced aesthetics, metrics, sub-sub-genres, just the delight of making music together with your peers.
