The Room Colored Charlatan - Between Mirrors: The Quantum Immortality [REVIEW]

Purchase: Physical / Digital
Genre: Ambient / Progressive / Deathcore

The Room Colored Charlatan's 2012 album release, The Quantum Immortality, is everything you could want from a progressive deathcore band that combines the elements of ambiance in their music. The fill the album with well over 30 minutes of music, to make sure that you get your moneys worth when purchasing the album. The album starts off with an eight minute and forty-one long introduction named "Departure." Which really shows what The Room Colored Charlatan is all about with their music, and what to expect for the rest of the album. It starts with a very calm ambient sound, and jumps straight into the progressive deathcore sound everyone enjoys. This is done with guitar work by Justin Seymour and Brent Edelson, and when you're a minute into the track, the heavy lows of Jared Bush come in and really sucks you in. Unlike a lot of long songs by other bands, this song doesn't get redundant or boring and continues to have fresh melodies and sounds throughout the entire song.

Following the first track is two interludes "Reflections Pt. I" and "Reflections Pt. II" which are about a minute each, and are great for fans of ambient sounds and guitar melodies. Another song that is worth noting is the second eight minute song, "Connection," which is more progressive than the introduction. It starts off with progressive guitar work, high screams, and overall a barrage of sound. It is less ambient than the other tracks, a lot more fast paced than other songs, and it really shows that The Room Colored Charlatan does the deathcore genre well. The final track "Revive" is a two minute song, that is very calm sounding with a more metalcore-like sound to give the listeners something to enjoy 'till the very end. 

Album Score: 4.8 / 5
