Now that both parts are out, make sure you pick them up. While Moments: Red and Blue both shine on their own, they play best together. Choosing to release their latest set of tracks as two separate EP’s is, well, something clever. But then that’s the name of the band, isn’t it? Moments: Blue is available on streaming services and music purchasing platforms today!
Since demonstrating their capabilities on their 2017 album Far from Strangers, Reason Define has only moved upward. The professional sound of In Memory… is absolutely unmistakeable. Despite, or perhaps because of, that professional refinement, the album also shows a lot of heart.
From the very first moment, Moments: Red grips you by the ears, prepared to drag you along for one heavy journey. “The Hill” starts off extremely heavy and doesn’t relent for even one moment.
In a backroom in Denver, Colorado, a small crowd was gathering. Word spread of the concert through event pages and messaging networks. Fans of hardcore and punk filed in, eager to hear the night’s music. Underground music never died. It just went, well, underground.
Shuulak handles their own recording, photography, and visual design, and this adds to the level of theatricality, allowing them to create a fully fleshed out concept with matching visuals. Through each track, you can see a story being told and tell that each note was thought out. The title track, “Albedo”, concludes the EP with a short ballad that leaves listeners wanting more from this truly top notch band.
It was a most excellent night. Several thousand dollars were raised for local causes, and all of the attendees had a blast. The Gathering Place, a Denver shelter for women, children, and transgender individuals, was the beneficiary for this night.

It is also worth noting that Twiztid brings along a live drummer, which gives them a unique touch among their peers. It is clear that Twiztid is a group with longevity, able to entertain crowds over twenty years after their debut. Make sure to see them if you get the chance!
