Sons of Alpha Centauri: ???A Death Cinematic??? CD Simple Box Construction (2009)
This is a fabulous split CD of long songs.?? Sons of Alpha Centauri is a ???dark instrumental riff rock band??? hailing from Swale, UK.?? Track 1 is ambient and atmospheric in the first two parts, with powerful heartbeat drums; part 3 is a rock composition, very psychedelic in nature; part 4 is a radio transmission with sirens and electronics used to great effect, like listening to the breathing of a respirator.?? A Death Cinematic is a one-man U.S. band creating magic from a guitar, amp, and effects that he mixes to create a unique improvisation characterized by reverb and feedback.?? This will appeal to many.

a death cinematic says

hello,

i want to thank you for listening to the album and doing a review. however, there are several problems with the review. 1. the album is a split. the two bands are the sons of alpha centauri and a death cinematic. 2. the first track with four titles is the one by the sons of alpha centauri and the last two tracks are by a death cinematic. 3. a death cinematic is a one man band that does everything on guitar, amp and guitar effects and he's from the U.S. he also runs simple box construction. i hope this helps. thank you. a death cinematic
