Breaking the Shell

by Dead Beat Project

Neo classical industrial dark ambient trip hop. The music expresses a certain form of beauty in sadness and melancholy. Endless Space and Time where one can linger eyes closed. A moment of reflexion on the inner self.

Album Notes
DBP is the solo project of Esoteric (UK) Keyboard player Olivier Goyet. This outfit took shape during the summer of 2005 while on tour in Europe, writing some possible ideas of new compositions for Esoteric, but which eventually could not fit with the band and were associated together under one new Project. It's taken nearly 8 months for completion of the first album of DBP, which has been mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Studios (Sutton Coldfield - UK) and is now released on Aesthetic Death Records.

Breaking the shell Reviews (extracts): : rated 18.5/20 - Olivier weaves with "Breaking The Shell" an intimate and cerebral canvas threaded with silk and gold, and extracts in a Baudelaire like manner, the Beauty and the Moving which is meant to represent Evil. rated 4/5 -[Olivier] is also capable to turn one track from dark to melancholic by adding only a few melody lines and this is a key point if you want to keep the attention of the listener. - rated 80% - Thus this instrumental optic give birth to this first official album of a mysterious and sensual shape (the swaying walks of the electro-world of "A Projection of the Mind"), changing along an economy of layers and giving "Breaking The Shell" a coherence, a spectrum. - rated 8/10 - "Breaking the Shell" is a recommended album for all those looking for new musical dimensions of surrounding sounds, danceable beats, touching industrial and dark ambient fanatics, all this in equal parts. A great surprise for our demanding ears. - There's a deep melancholy that courses through the nine tracks on Breaking The Shell, an introspective gloominess that Goyet paints with an array of spacey, prog-rock synthesizers, old-school electronica and trip-hop beats, and other nods to mostly older electronic music.

Breaking The Shell
This is a fantastic album.
From the very first note it engulfs you with its tremendous beauty and puts you swaying on the waves of a vast endless ocean of pure calm and blissful balance. The journey through this album should not be broken by skipping songs or just jumping from one to other, it is important as the songs come like waves one after the other and wash your soul, as if it is a sandy beach...
Its is my second listen to this beautiful piece of music, and what I need now is to turn the lights off, volume up the sound and close my eyes, drifting out of the room to a place with no whys, wheres, whens or whats. Of course, another way to listen to this album is while you are working something with the headphones on, and what will happen is that it will slowly crawl through your veins and join with your subconscience, refreshing your soul, and expanding your views. I am looking forward to it, because that is what music is for. Not just for listening, but also for experiencing it from your very core.
And the title of the album is perfectly matching the power of this music - it helps you break the shell and reach for the horizon and beyond!

Now as I am writing this, I am listening to "In Vitam Aeternam" fascinated by its power, its "vastness", its timelessness...

Great work, Olivier! Thank you for sharing your sense for music and speachless, calm beauty with us all!
