On November 1st 2015 Eyegasm, Hallelujah! was finally released, the second discographic effort by the Italian post-metal act Sunpocrisy. The album follows the excellent first work Samaroid Diaromas (2012), and comes with a series of YouTube clips, one for each song, that fully complete the fruition enhancing the listening experience.

E|H isn’t only the chronological follow up of its predecessor, but it represents also its logic consequence from a composition standpoint. Where Samaroid Diaromas stops, Eyegasm Hallelujah! begins, spreading and evolving starting from the wall of sound of the first album. The astonishing definition and solidity of the low frequencies are the characteristics that catches the ‘ear’ right from the very first listenings.

Such a steady framework is necessary though, in order to substain the entire structure of a very complex and multilayered album as the one we are speaking of. Sure enough, the main feature of this release is the incredible network made of harmonies, effects and noises that create an unwordly atmosphere, by alternating or topping one over the other. The melodic side of the album is not filling per se, as it is well balanced and wisely spaced out with moments of precise and controlled massive violence, in pure Sunpocrisy fashion way. The voice has a key role in fulfilling the powerful alchemy of contrasts and adjusts itself to the rest of the mix by means of thousands sides, emphasizing the seesaw of emotional asymmetries.

Every choice made by the band has the final goal to create an oneiric world in which every song walks into the other, perfectly following the pattern of a dreamlike experience. This new surrounding is the background of the detached and lysergic story told through this album, by means of superb, poetical lyrics. Although the concept is completely removed from reality, it recalls some of the deepest and darkest sides of the human soul, and it leaves room for some personal interpretation, by wondering about existence.

Anyway, the most remarkable feature of Eyegasm, Hallelujah! is its extraordinary synesthetic side. Listening to it allows the connection among different sensorial spheres, rather than the aural one, in particular the visual one, as the title of the album partially suggests (eye-gasm). This aspect is widely highlighted by an overwhelming live performance, thanks to a stunning game of shadows, beamings, lasers and projections. Finally, Eyegasm, Hallelujah! is not only the confirmation of a first class act but testifies its unstoppable process of growth and improvement.
