Rare Candy/The Truth/Dod Incarnate Records/2012 CD Review


  Rare  Candy  are  a  1  man  project  from  Kansas  that  is  a  side  project  of  one  of  the  members  of  Elctrikchair  with  a  musical style  I  would  describe  as  being  8  bit  metal and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "The  Truth"  which  was released  by  Dod  Incarnate  Records.


  Drum  programming  is  all  slow  to  mid  paced  programmed  beats  with  not  much  in  the  way  of  fast  playing  or  blast  beats,  while  the  synths  bring  in  dark  ambient  elements  to  the  music  along  with  the  feeling  of  an  old  Nintendo  game  soundtrack  mixed  in  with  some  metal  influences,  and  there  is  no use  of  a  bass  guitar  on  this  recording.


  Guitars  and  vocals  are  absent  from  the  music,  with  the  music  being  all  electronic  and  instrumental,  while  the  song  themes  cover  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark sound  that  reminds  me  of  1980's  video  games.


  In  my  opinion  Rare  Candy  are  a  very  great  sounding  electronic  8  bit  metal  band  and  if  you  are  looking  for  something  that  is  different,  you  should  check  this  band  out.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Kyerum"  and  "The  Truth".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.

  1. The songs are all stolen.
    Myself and 7 other bands have been writing songs for a Pokémon Split for over a year now.
    I believe this will sound familiar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l71n2u0pqh8
