Facsimile is a 6 song EP by studio project Promontory. Following up from their demo released in 2015, they have continued to push their punk/metal roots and chaotic time key signatures, all the while keeping a kind of melodic beauty to the cacophony.
'Confined' should be the last word to ever describe the music of Promontory. No bars. No limits. From chaos, strong emotions, and melancholic storms it seems that between both founding members, any bit of influence and inspiration is up for the taking.
Lyrically, Facsimile touches on the limits of our dichotomies, all the while dissecting similarly themed films. Lyrics are conceived from not only self reflection, but an artistic interpretation that leaves listeners trying to solve the puzzle and connect the dots, all while being left with thoughts and feelings of themselves and the world around them.
Musically you are blindsided by a violent wave, yet an overpowering sense of self control. Through the musicality bleeds all the notes of a truly classically trained composing style countered by a love of modern musical blasphemy. Noise. Raw and gut wrenching sonics.
