‘Rapid Empire’ EP
By C. W. Ross
Canon Logic’s music has a hypnotic quality found on it that draws you in and doesn’t let go. The band’s songs mostly start with short instrumental parts that lay the foundation for them.
‘Rapid Empire’ is the follow up to the band’s 2010 ‘FM Arcade’ debut.
The EP features five songs from the band leading off with the track, “Sirens,” that sounded a little bit like U2 at the start then quickly changed into a pop style with splashes of a new wave sound.
Next up is, “Rapid Empire (Am I M.I.A.?),” that starts off with a building drumbeat and also offers up a catchy chorus part.
The EP’s third track, “Howl in the Night,” is another up tempo track featuring some heavier lyrics driven by its steady drum and bass parts and backing vocal choruses.
‘No Domino,” starts off with a nice percussion (hand drums) and keyboard intro before the passion filled lead vocals come to life.
The closing track, “Dungeon Fallout,” starts off with a repetitive simple guitar line that’s joined by a second guitar part before the drums kick in finally joined by keys and vocals.
Review takeaway: Canon Logic’s music is lively, hypnotic and flows with such ease that it will have your ears shivering in pure delight as you listen to it.
