Swedish power-synth act Irving Force is back with his long awaited debut long play album! Following a series of EPs that established him as one of the most well respected names in the international Synthwave scene and two singles (‘Violence Suppressor’ and ‘Overlord’) the time for Irving Force to unleash the full might of ‘Godmode’ LP is finally here.
A genre defying album that blends together influences from Cyberpunk to Thrash and Doom Metal to Ennio Morricone-esque post apocalyptic Western themes/soundscapes, “Godmode” is the next step in Irving Force’s musical evolution and the evolution of the Synthwave/Darksynth genre as a whole. The characteristic riff filled Synthwave/Darksynth structures and compositions we’ve all come to know and love by Irving Force are coupled with distorted synths and live vocals (when needed), providing an album that excels not only in its compositions but also in its storytelling and fresh, forward thinking approach.
From the opening seconds of the LP opening track ‘Subterranean Formations’ to the very last seconds of the last song ‘Wasteland’ this an album that was created to be heard as a whole and fans of Irving Force’s cinematic and action packed story driven album writing will no doubt come to love and appreciate it as the genre defying and at the same evolving album that it is. The only limit to music writing is one’s imagination and Irving Force’s debut LP ‘Godmode’ is the perfect proof of that.
