HyperEx Machina

Steve Munslow definately has his own "sound" 
and very nice it is too. Sometimes quite intense, 
sometimes sparse, but always with that "edge" 
that defines the artist as different. In a nice way.

Dimension Home
From the opening track 'It's Got to Start Somewhere' 
you know that it definately has started somewhere, 
and it gets bigger and better as it progresses.

Reviews

Anthem for a Dying Race

Four long tracks that give you the time to get totally immersed. 
Then the use of the guitar elevates your mood, totally rewarding. 
Tracks that seem initially simple unfold into a complex array of 
layers building and developing into a wonderful musical experience.
