Pendulum was my first dnb act ever. Obviously I started with Hold Your Colour (the album) and then things started getting strange with the next two albums. Unless the collab with In Flames. That tune was glorious!
Man, I can see why they really hit it off well in the dnb scene. They must've been quite the slammers back then! (heck, they are today)
Also, thank you much for the opinions. I've been a huge Rob Swire fan (Pendulum and KP) for a while now–––I think he is one of the greatest producers and writers in music–––but I was curious to see how tasteless I was in that. I mean, I know it's well-produced material, but if someone is was poorly regarded in the dnb scene, I think there would be a good reason for it.
Big fan of everything except in silico. Thought Immersion done them quite a bit of justice again & 'Ransom' was cool. Saw them at a packed metro city in Perth few years back and it was easily one of the most electric shows i've ever been too. Think they may have played the island for the first time at that show.
And as far as Pendulum goes now with the dj set El Hornet is a don
I remember when they first dropped Another Planet fresh out of the studio.. The crowd went fucking batshit and they played it again further down the set to the same reaction. The flip is pretty ace as well.. Voyager. Fuck.. Every tune they did pre HYC is a classic. Still Grey, Toxic Shock. Their remix skills are on point, Voodoo People done with a 24hr time frame and Rob the Z3ta guru dialled up all the riffs from scratch.
Paul mentioned the other day the trio have been out playing dnb sets and have gotten their inspiration and passion back for it. Just quietly.. New LP in about 8 months.
