Tepetricy-Intangibles of Tomorrow
There are many bands that can be classified as unique or special due to them standing out in a specific genre, but this is not necessarily the case for the band, “Tepetricy”. Upon first listen to the band’s latest effort, “Intangibles of Tomorrow”, it can be somewhat difficult to classify them as the top dog of any genre due to the fact that they display a diverse range of musical attributes that could venture into the realm of multiple genres. The band describes their brand of music as “motion music” due to their energetic sound that can easily make any listener become lost in the transverse universe of musical authenticity.
The opening track, “Montage For A Monster”, slams the listener into a subsonic wall of sound that leaves the individual weathered but wanting more. This song showcases the band’s unique ability to craft a larger than life sound while displaying each of the band member’s individual musical attributes. Wilyum Campbell and Robin Rapsys both do an excellent job of laying down the foundation for bass and drums to make this song a monster (no pun intended). What is most impressive is the intricate musical bond shared between guitarist Aaron Peterson and keyboardist Victor Quade. Both musicians seem to mimic one another, but are able to display their individual playing skills that include melodic keyboards, blistering guitar riffs, and solos while progressing through the song.
Steven Fremling must also be given credit as a valuable member of Tepetricy as being an outstanding vocalist. In the song, “The Bronze Outfit”, Fremling delivers a vocal performance in which he is able to bridge both melodic vocals with lung blistering screams to create a true masterpiece. At the 2:20 minute mark, Fremling’s vocal ability can truly be heard as he pulls from the inner depths of his soul to conger a monumental vocal performance that only so few can accomplish.
If the listener is still not convinced about Tepetricy’s integrity, then the song, “To Train A Traveling Mind”, will surely put all of those doubts to rest. The band wastes no time with a long interlude, but floods the listener’s ears with a heavy dose of saturated guitar tones, anthem-like keyboard harmonies, and intricate drumming. Fremling once again displays why he is the right person for the job when it comes to handling vocal duties for this band. It is an incredible sensation to hear how Fremling’s vocals can transition from a menacing scream to a voice of clarity.
Tepetricy label their brand of music as “motion music” and it couldn’t be any further from the truth due to the fact that they are always pushing the threshold of creativity. From start to finish, “Intangibles of Tomorrow”, will satisfy any listener who has a traveling mind for diverse music. If you are looking for a band that has energy, diversity, and authenticity to their music then Tepetricy is the band for you!
