"Sol Eye Sea I" is the awe-inspiring result of true musical pioneers carving out a path of originality from their diverse palette of influences. Fusing the likes of extreme / progressive rock and metal with the likes of R&B and electronic sound-scapes allows IREPRESS to truly expand their own niche in the world arena of progressive music. Without a doubt, this is going to be one of the most original, experimental and outstanding records of 2009!
What folks have been saying about IREPRESS:
"Undeniably beautiful and spine tingling." - Alternative Press
"Hypnometal with leafy-green seventies fusion" - Revolver
"Fucking Brilliant" - Decibel
"Mind Blowing" - Outburn
Sol Eye See I: Release Notes: Muze
The anarchic, Boston-based genre-blending quintet Irepress unveils its second studio release of schizophrenic, aggressive rock, SOL EYE SEA I--a special journey through musical wastelands that leaves the listener mystified and enlightened at once. Largely an instrumental album, a rarity in heavy rock circles, the disc combines key elements of progressive rock, metalcore, jazz fusion, and shoegazing in a whirlwind sonic stew. Bolder than Irepress' 2007 debut, SAMUS OCTOLOGY, SOL EYE SEA I could have very easily resulted in a confusing mess, but the band's strict attention to composition actually transforms this album into a surprisingly pleasant experiment in musical escapism.
