Album Review - The Algorithm: 'Data Renaissance'
French electro-metal/synthwave artist Rémi Gallego aka The Algorithm releases searing genre-busting new album Data Renaissance via FiXT.
When it comes to tech-metal/djent artists in the scene like The Algorithm, you always know you will get something atmospherically unique from the French metal/electronic artist. Drawing heavily from synthwave, cyberpunk, and metal influences, Data Renaissance sonically opens the gates to something more progressive, visceral, and melodic.
“Moments that stand out on the album are "Decompilation." An organized chaos of spiky djenty energies, twisted synths, and distorted electronic soundscapes, it's an impactful experience that will be remembered.”
Data Renaissance opens up with sublimely structured "Segmentation Fault." A haze of kaleidoscopic electro-metal bliss, it opens the album for what's to come.
Other moments that stand out on the album are "Decompilation." An organized chaos of spiky djenty energies, twisted synths, and distorted electronic soundscapes, it's an impactful experience that will be remembered.
Cinematic engrossing tracks such as cyberpunk enriched "Cryptographic memory" contains an orchestral serenity surrounding it. Showing The Algorithm aka Rémi Gallego is gifted at atmospheric surroundings within an auditorial experience, this dreamy neon melody will become a favorite for many on the album.
"Multithreading" becomes another genre-busting concoction on the album, as the hard-hitting energies of tumultuous electronic waves course through the track, intermingling with its gritty guitar textures.
Data Renaissance creates some creatively searing aggressive moments that cascade into gorgeous stabs of synth and digital bliss. Rémi Gallego is about as talented as they come when it comes to multi-genre forces in the electronic,synthwave, and metal genres. If the artist brings more atmospherically heavy and inventive works like this to the table, the electro-metal scene is in for a real treat.
