Welcome to Harmony.

Like a hymnbook injected with a hefty dose of despair, unrest and every unrefined part of the human condition; a sense of catharsis creeps into the ear of listeners of Carpetbombing.

Its slow-rocking motion takes up all sides, is it a torchlight into the soul, or is it the ravings of a group of emotionally affected musicians?

Tantalisingly treading the thin tightrope between two realms, this album pulls at the listener. Wrenching and coaxing in equal measure.

Moving through feeling as they move through the album, Harmony’s newest offering is a head-first dive into chaos. (SP)
