Killing Season

Christopher Young

" A perfectly mixed hunting experience "

Written by Thomas Glorieux - Review of the regular release

The strength of the album is the album itself, a perfectly mixed together experience that brings you everything you need. It begins with the beauty of hunting, the forest's serene tranquility and the understanding between 2 people who will inherent the rest of the movie from then on. "Interlude" then sets everything in motion so that "Part 2" can focus its attention on the suspense and the thrill of the hunt itself. It opens at first with cool variations on the theme, but the more it progresses, the more it sets down a rougher voice for the hunter itself (this through solo vocals and that creepy Drag Me to Hell solo violin). The last track closes things off in more serene circumstances. Even though the entire album holds little highlights, it is the overall flow that makes Killing Season worth it. A perfect background experience and a very consistent listening experience. Well done to whoever mixed this together.

4 tracks, 2 of them being over 17 minutes long, they form the bulk of the score and flow very fluently.
The first track sets down the beauty of the forest, the 3rd brings forward the battle.
There's room for solo vocals, tension, mood and relief.
You might not get the highlights out of it, considering it's all mixed together.
