The Congregation is bringing rock-n-roll tent revival to our ears in the best possible way through ‘Soundtrack to the End of the World’. With the preacher leading the way through the anthemic rock soundscape, he takes us on a journey to musical salvation. Packed with a sermon unlike any we have heard before, the single picks up the best elements of this musical style and bring a dramatic flair that elevates it beyond anything we have heard before.
The brainchild of Clayton Bellamy, it is another step in his musical evolution and one we are really glad he has taken. With multiple awards to his name, Bellamy’s projects have swept across the globe. Now, his new style is bringing a hard rock tone to our ears while filling us with a sense of what to expect in the future.
‘Soundtrack to the End of the World’ slowly builds the opening of the track with a vibrating tone. This is met with the shivering energy of the hard rock drums and guitars. The music shakes your insides as it fills you with the energy of the single and makes you want to jump around. As you listen to the single, the music makes you feel like running and expending all the energy it is pumping into you. As you are being pumped with the energy of the track, you can feel the dramatic flair of the music that takes everything to a new level. The energy of the track doesn’t drop for a second which makes it even better.
As the melody is vibrating in the opening, the sound bite of a sermon perfectly sets the scene of the single. When Bellamy’s vocals jump in he pushes against the sermon from the first moment. There is a sense of rebellion to his performance that makes you want to push against the people who want to tell you what to do. His performance is an interesting contrast to the opening sermon and carries a great weight to it as the message he has to impart slides through your veins. You can hear little bits of familiar sermons into the vocals, but they are given a new life by the pure power of The Congregation.
With an energy that shakes you from the inside, The Congregation has you jumping around to his sound while pushing against constraints in ‘Soundtrack to the End of the World’. The music is high-octane energy in distilled form as it sears through your veins and has you shaking with the need to run. His vocals bring an extra edge to the sound while giving the energy injected into you some direction.
