Album Notes
cruelty thrives on frailty. it's a harsh fact of life. and it's one of the many familiar themes the dark electro band halo effect examines on it's new album, isolation.

halo effect's roots reach back over 10 years to the introverted and eclectic peter morris. rather than socializing, morris spent his time carefully crafting industrial songs for the band deus ex machina. after DEM disbanded, he spent the next few years writing, remixing, and djing music. it was his life.

as time passed, spinning his hand-picked goth and industrial for unappreciative audiences frustrated morris. he went into seclusion and emerged months later with the experimental electronic album incident. incident proved to be less of an album and more of an angst-filled audio soup of backlash to the vapid electronic dance music scene. halo effect was born.

with isolation, HE has unleashed it's most impressive and introspective work to date. on this album, morris confronts his feelings of conformity, loss and even his own hypocrisy. and the positive pre-release feedback from the songs "burn it down," "nothing," and "judas calling" proves HE's still relevant.

all things considered, starting an album with "you were all right, i haven't got the fight" seems out of place. however, by album's end, the listener comprehends the deception. in fact, morris seems as passionate as he's ever been. and the addition of his world experience only adds to the fuel of his unapologetic anger.


to write a review


Dark, Deep and starkly emotional..
Halo Effect is the solo project of Peter Morris, formerly of the band Deus Ex Machina. It's also a chronicle of deep depression, with a lyrical and musical journey to the depth of utter hopelessness. Industrial music is represented here, as is synthpop and Darkwave, all simply elements used as tools to help paint this dark picture. At times, especially in the instrumental tracks, the music is very sparse, lending a even more desolate feeling to the album. "Give Up" opens the album perfectly, with a very deep, almost whispered vocal over the heavy bass-led music. "Nothing", fittingly, is one of the most musically sparse tracks on the album. Both "Judas Calling" and "Die Alone" are also high-quality tracks. Extremely dark, but very high quality.

All that being said, these 8 tracks are very, very enjoyable. This is certainly not a album to listen to on a gray and cloudy day, but for those days where you feel like nothing is going right, this is a great cd to pop in and realize someone else has felt this... emptiness.
