Well the only thing I can say about Hawking is wow. They’re like an alt rock mixed with some technical bits from the likes of Polyphia. It’s certainly a refreshing sound and it’s pieced together perfectly. Tom’s vocals seriously soar perfectly over the melodies of the drums and guitars that really makes this a masterpiece compared to what I was expecting. For their album to be released with this incredible sound is something I was not expecting at all.
The ep’s from Hawking were incredible but it really doesn’t have a scratch on this album as every song from start to finish has it’s unique sound while keeping a perfect sound which is something totally new in the scene. The song that really sticks out to me would have to be Broken Glass as it compliments extremely well together and has a very Polyphia vibe which I did not expect to come out of nowhere. The bass bits in Broken Glass are also extremely surprising as they come out soaring through the mix which is a pleasant surprise and it shows the talent in which the bassist has behind their songs.
If you’ve yet to check out Hawking I’d certainly recommend checking out this release as it has something extremely refreshing and I am expecting it to turn a lot of heads when it is released because I feel this is a masterpiece in the over saturated scene. I am completely in shock at how well this is produced mixed and mastered this deserves credit as they’ve done an extremely well done job on this release.
Hawking have done something so special mixing two totally different genre's together that worked extremely well
