The album kicks off with the title track, The Day When I Left with its slowly evolving groove taking us on a brooding, emotive journey deep into progressive house. From here we move into a more upfront vibe in Pride & Honour which offers up rich, colourful melodies with an Eastern flavour to the backdrop of a solid, chunky bass. Black Meteor is up next and ramps up the energy levels with a quicker tempo and a sublime cosmic vibe. The track is powered by a chugging bassline and tight beat arrangement as space-age pads and FX fill out the spectrum for a rip-roaring ride on the floors. Revenge Of The Nature prolongs the energetic theme with its ethereal, galactic glow caressing the floor, keeping the crowd locked in to the trance-like groove.
First Empire marks the midway point in the album and unleashes a strong progressive vibe full of reverence and stoicism. The rich pads contrast with stabbing bass plucks and a deep underlying chaotic arpeggio which gives the track a solid feel. Next, we have the creamy tonal layers of Dignity which deliver a sublime prog mover that will definitely get the floors moving. We continue with the dynamically charged Define Infinity before talking a step into a more laidback vibe with the mid-tempo Antarctic Mist. Sunset In Khartoum lifts the mood with a wonderfully captivating and hypnotic groove before the album finishes up with the rugged grooves of Freedom Fighters.
With this album AudioStorm proclaims his stature within the progressive house scene in a way that captivates and inspires. A dance-friendly collection of great tracks that will not disappoint the seasoned jock or the discerning late-night clubber.
