Booming with a lust for trance, the American trance family is rejoicing over the highly anticipated release of Piercing The Quiet. Produced by the recently interviewed Tritonal duo from Texas, the album dropped yesterday on Will Holland’s prestigious Enhanced Recordings, and begins and ends with an enormous attention to detail and an incomprehensible level of sophisticated production.
With an arsenal of releases on all the major trance labels, including Flashover, Armada, Anjunabeats, AVA, and Coldharbour, there couldn’t have been a better time for these two to debut the album, especially considering the American branch of the global trance family has never been stronger. Having started their own label, Air Up There Recordings, the two have already released major hits this year including The Gift by Orange County’s Norin & Rad.
Igniting the album, Poem Of Angels glows with the most core elements of trance– massively epic strings topped off with chopped female vocals, and… the cries of bald eagles? This intro truly sets the mood right before the plethora of dominating vocal tracks. This is a must-have album for all vocal trance enthusiasts, with heart-piercing tracks sung by Cristina Soto, Jeza, Bethany, Fisher, Jenry R, and even Meredith Call. The album also includes the original of their first single Lifted that Mat Zo so skillfully remixed.
Among the many jaw-dropping tracks on the album, my personal choices that really stand out are Still With Me, Everafter, and the aforementioned Poem Of Angels. This is truly an album best compared to Sirens Of The Sea by Oceanlab. Its tracks are not only ripe for remixing but reflect the sky-high potential that Tritonal possesses.
